Wanderers' Stats Neil Westgarth
Length of  Career Played cricket nearly all me days, school then club.
Previous Clubs Crosshill C.C., Dunfermline C.C., Dunfermline Carnegie C.C., Dunfermline Wanderers C.C., Fife Police C.C., Scottish Police XI.
Most Memorable Moment(s) Scoring the winning runs in a match winning partnership of 86 to beat Merseyside Police in the British Police cup. Taking two hat-tricks (Westquarter and Leith Beige). Running Tom Gibson out v St Modans and the scoring 48* in 17 balls to win the match. Watching the Red Arrows swoop over the ground when Sadie hit his 150 v Old Contemptibles and forming The Mighty Wanderers.
Most Forgettable Moment(s) Calling for a catch v Kismet in 2006 and totally missing it! Behaviour of a certain individual on the field of play (Pikes mate who drives trains!)
Best Player Played Alongside Wayne Sullivan, Starkie (in the good old days of the grades), Sadie Harrower, Colin Campbell, Paul Norman. David Miller.
Best Player Played Against Drew Pryde Drumpellier C.C, Ashok Malhotra (never played in the same side only against him). Can't remember his first name but the chap Cowan from Freuchie.
Cricketing Idol(s) Anyone who gives committment to the Wanderers! Glenn McGrath and I.T. Botham.
Cricketing Ambition(s) To bring on new talent into the Wanderers' family, to keep playing as long as possible and to ensure that Dunfermline Wanderers contine to make alliances and gain respect from our peers and fellow combatants. And hopefully one day score a ton! Which didn't really bother me until last season's game v Kismet!!!!
Favourite Ground The Ropery Chester le Street, Co Durham, Trent Bridge.
Cricketing Pet Hates Last minute call offs. Club officials who have no regard whatsoever for any democratic procedure and openly lie to their own members. Cheats. People who do not play for the team and anybody who drinks Budweiser regularly.
Funniest Moment(s) in Cricket The bold Kev and Richard McMullens getting into a huge run out tangle v Trinity a few years ago resulting in Kev running like a man possesed to get to his ground only to find they had thrown it at the other end.
Who do I admire the most? Gotta be Drew, always there for the club and gives 100% when he's not boring the square leg umpire to tears. Gets on with it without any complaints though some rotten folk give constant pelters (that'll be me then).
Favourite Food Liver n Onions!
Favourite Drink Might come as a surprise but I quite like lager and Jack D with coke and ice.
Favourite Film Pulp Fiction and most war movies and anything with Lynsey Dawn McKenzie in it!!!!
Favourite Music Paul Simon (still got 2 tickets for last years concert) and most Brit Pop stuff man!
