Jay Jay Barr
Thankfully rescued by Liam Neeson in the swamps of Naboo from the march of the Federation army, he was groomed for a stellar career as Mr Neeson taught young Barr a unique set of skills, at least that's the story he tells.
A player very much in the mould of Shaun Pollock, strong reliable bowling option and steady flow of runs in the middle order make him a real asset. His career batting average would have been even more impressive were he not batting with the tail for most of his career, notching up the most not outs in first class cricket for Westville CC. In season 42, with his bowling in decline, he was pushed up to number 4 in the batting order with noted success.
In Season 34 he scored a century in each innings, twice rescuing the side from a precarious position and batting with the tail, whilst making his regular consistent wicket taking contributions. A career-best performance. see https://www.cricket-championship.com/match/231873. That season he also became the only club player to take 25 wickets and score 750+ runs in the same season.
In Season 37, become the second Westville CC player to take 300 wickets, also passing 4,000 career runs that season, the first club player to achieve that double. In Season 40 he further enhanced his super allrounder status by becoming the first to the double of 5,000 runs and 400 wickets.
In Season 41, another career highlight came. With his team batting at home on a friendly batting track, he came to the crease with his team reeling at 31/4. He proceeded to bat for the next 5 hours in typical stoic Barr fashion, notching up a first class top score of 182* and seeing his team through to a total of 455.
