JOHN RAMSAY



Name: John Ramsay (AKA: "Mini-Rolls", "Yazz")

Cricket: RH Bat; RA Fast

Debut: 1998

Already the veteran of eleven seasons with the club and fast approaching his 100th appearance, it’s a sobering thought to be reminded that John is still only a teenager.

Having made his debut in 1998 as an 8-year-old, John has grown up with the club, initially brought along whenever his father played, both John and older brother James showed enthusiasm for the sport, desperate to play if we were short and more than willing to turn out for the opposition if it meant getting a game.

Both brothers were also regulars at nets and keen rivals, James the batsman and John a budding fast bowler and it was as a bowler that he began to make his mark in the Ipsden side, claiming his first wicket in 2002 and taking ten just two seasons later.

His abilities didn’t go un-noticed outside the club, scouted playing youth cricket, for a couple of seasons we had to vie for his availability with the Oxfordshire U-16 side.

Back playing regularly in 2006 he bagged 19 wickets, his batting was also beginning to develop as his strength matured and he had a breakthrough year in 2008, showing good judgement in mixing power with patience, he was rewarded with back to back half centuries and a seasons average of 47.2.

Blessed with a strong arm, athleticism in the field and a well balanced temperament John is developing into a fine all-round cricketer and has taken on the vice-captaincy for the 2009 season.

His ‘development’ was also in evidence during the 2008 tour as he displayed an ease in cultivating the friendship of the local female population and we brace ourselves for 2009 with potentially the entire youth division of John, Jono, Jimmy and Dan all touring.
