Tony Bishop

A former middle-order batsman whose innings were noted for aggression and brevity more than Dravidian limpet-like resistance, cut him and he bleeds Middlesex (and Watford - doctors are baffled).

Our Head of Marketing and advertising exec by trade, he started as a copywriter editing Mills and Boon’s customer newsletter under the nom de plume of Susan. It still pays the bills.

An occasional harp player and lover of the blues, he once supported Steve Marriott of the Small Faces and has met Willie Dixon’s daughter. If you don’t know who Willie was then listen to Guerilla Cricket as he's bound to mention it at some point! @tonybishop1 on Twitter.
