Player Profiled for the month of June is ANDREW CAITHNESS.
Andrew Caithness or better known to most of us as Cakie, is another club stalwart. He is our club historian and shoulder to cry on. He relates especially well with the younger bowlers and at times feels the need to put a halt to the game, so that he can pass on his wisdom. This at times is done with the assistance of Jac Davies. (The fallout from these discussions is the halt in the progress of the game, which ultimately fires up our wicket keeper Mark "ROBBO" Robinson. Rumour has it that Jac and Cakie do it just to piss Robbo off). Cakie is an enigmatic right hand batsmen, who at times can find an extraordinary way to get out. A terrific personality to have around the club.

Your funniest moment at the club: When we played at the Altona High School we had a moat around the ground. Laurie Grioli went charging after a ball and slid straight into the water and came up soaking wet & covered in mud.
