Profile

'Bullhead', as he was affectionately known on the county circuit circa the 1980s, employed a run-up which began in Derbyshire and he arrived at the crease at roughly the same velocity as a man fired from a circus cannon. OK, so the intimidation factor took a bit of a nosedive when the ball came out of his hand like a piece of churchyard confetti, but this never deterred Gordon when he got one past the bat. He is currently coaching the Highveld Lions in South Africa's domestic circuit.
