We had a comment yesterday from an anonymous reader claiming to be former Senghenydd CC stalwart Dai Maclaren. Dave graced the Windsor ground for many years. During his time he was dubbed Elwyn’s apprentice, as his dogged batting style and Boycott temperament made Dave an ideal opening batsman. It wasn’t always that way for Dave though who had a bit of ‘dodgy start’ with bat but when he adopted his ‘F**k the Duck’ motto his attitude towards batting changed and he focused on not giving his wicket away and not getting himself out. It was this attitude that allowed Dave to score the runs he did for Senghenydd.
If Dave’s comment is correct, then he maybe considering a comeback. If Dave still has the mental toughness to batting and the same dogged determination to keep his wicket in tact he will be a great addition to the squad for the 2012 season.
