W.R. Beasley All rounder

Plays for The Beers
Age: 31
Right-hand batsman
Right-arm medium bowler

A steady medium paced bowler, and hard hitting batsman known for his accuracy with the ball. He developed his swing bowling in later years to enhance his back of a length or full and straight approach.

Originally drafted back in the same season as fellow all round medium pacer Brennan, he followed a slightly different path. Where Brennan focused on his bowling first and batting second, Beasley took the opposite approach. Both were relatively lowly skilled AR and had to put a lot of effort into reaching decent skill levels. Beasley found he spent the entirety of his career in limited overs formats. Whilst he thought briefly that he may get opportunities at FC cricket as Shepherd slowly faded the veteran all-rounder maintained his place until younger players were deemed at a level to replace him. He was a steady performer in OD cricket, although his batting returns were lower than hoped for a batsman as skilled as he became. His returns with the ball were consistent, albeit never devastating (never took a 5wi), and he leaves the Ducklings 5th on the OD wickets list, one of only seven bowlers to pass 200.

He heads off to try and finally get his chance in FC cricket.
