    Dutchy, do you remember those away swingers? I'm still bowling them, they are coming out really good, the only problem is that I eat to many mixed grills and I have put on a lot of weight so I'm not bowling as quick. At times I am mistaken for 147. The stan version. Infact Maj has also put on a lot of weight as well. He is struggling to run singles. lol

    Tom, who are you reffering to as daddy? Dutchyyyyy noooooooooo....... Please come back to Brentham, I am missing your leadership skills, Please come back Tin Tin, your dog snowey misses you to.

    Dutchie - hadn't realised what a following you had at BCC. Perhaps, you need to take them on a tour to Pakistan?

    How are things with you anyways? All good I trust.

    Majed I am very disappointed in what you have written above, I can expect the above from Yogi, Naz, Matt and esp Sully. I thought you were a friend. Why did you leave Brentham? You should have come and played for me, with me. Also, are you still waxing your body? lol I never knew you felt for me this way... Can you call me to discuss this further. Yogi, sorry mate but I don't remember anything of the sort, you have me mistaken with majed. It was you and him that used to get up to no good in the showers...

    Well Keith was also my captain at brentham, He was like a father figure to me, I loved him so much until he left me to captain the side and it all went down hill for me, I lost every game in the premier league that uear and couldn't handle the pressure so I left the club. Ever since I left I have been trying to find my best friend Keith Dutch so that I can play in the same team as him again. Keith if you are reading this please get in touch with me, I want to play with you again, you are my cricketing guru. I even promise to cutt my hair if you get in touch with me. I miss you loads babe..

    Yes he does play for Brentham I know him quite well he’s Nice. When I first joined the club I was scared of him he put me under too much pressure and I couldn’t perform at all it was all Dutchy No…No.

    But then I got confidence and stood up to him and told him to go and field in the allotments when I bowl my TD’s from the pavilion end. He’s Nice Dutchy is.
