PLAYER PROFILE
D. BAILEY
Dan Bailey b. 1988............PING PONG
active 2010-present

Dan came to Endon in 2010 and soon established himself as a Post Lane favourite because he is so often just a moment away from the spectacular. He takes important wickets, bats without fear and, above all things, fields as if his life depends upon it. His barrage of sixes to beat Premier side Longton in the 2011 Talbot Cup will always be remembered but it his athleticism anywhere in the field that most characterises his ability and contribution to any team.

ACHIEVEMENTS WITH THE CLUB

Well known for his ability to sleep at any time and in any corner of crevice of the club, Dan undoubtedly saves all his energy for the field of play. In the 2012 season he received the Captain's Player of the Year award after topping the team's bowling averages and taking third spot in the batting. Without fear of contradiction, however, his greatest achievement, in a fantastic season for him, was a super-rapid century. Not only was his 108 unbeaten, and possibly the fastest century in the club's history, but it occurred in an important promotion-chasing match against arch-rivals Bagnall. That really is as good as it gets and ensures Dan's place in the history of the club.

SERVICE TO THE CLUB

Dan's natural verve for life makes him an asset to all social occasions. He is the dressing room joker and naturally buoys team morale on the field of play.

Social events are the key element of Dan's contribution to the club, both in helping to organise them and in making the most of them.
