The Guerillas

The Man, The Myth, The Legend. Probably the best, most unfit left-arm orthodox spinner to never play for England since ... The King of Spain. Founding member of the Guerilla Cricket family.

Co-founder of Guerilla Cricket with Nigel "The Bear" Walker, the other Nigel (Henderson) continues to eschew the glamour of the mainstream, remaining true to socialist principles to fight the good fight Outside Cricket. The programme"s main anchor is a former opening bat who spent a winter netting with Surrey in the early Eighties, he is the author of four books and may one day make a half-decent journalist. Believes all commentary stints are enlivened by the presence of pastries.

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.

Annie is child number four of a cricket-obsessed professor, so her path in life was predetermined. She is now the editor of County Cricket Matters magazine and a Guerilla Cricket regular, and is determined to talk about Somerset CCC and Marcus Trescothick as often as is humanly possible. She can only count to 99. @AnnieChave on Twitter.

Gary Naylor decided not to play football for Everton and, in 1977, played cricket for Hightown instead, where he honed his commentating skills by talking through every ball but one of every Hightown innings. (Do keep up!)

He was delighted in 2010 to find people listening for the very first time and has been a guerilla since. His cricket writing appears regularly at and Spin Cricket. He is chief reviewer for Broadway World. Find him @garynaylor999 and he'll talk cricket to you!

Andy Ward (aka GetItQuietly) was a faceless drone until 2006 when, during a mid-life crisis, he became a professional poker player instead. This was about 1% as cool as it sounds. Nonetheless, he has never done a proper day's work since, making him an ideal commentator for Guerilla Cricket.  He can be found on Twitter at @GetItQuietly, mostly zinging the likes of Kajagoogoo into even further oblivion during repeats of Top of the Pops 1983.

Paul Howarth (aka Grubby) captained Queens' College to the Cambridge University league title in 1995. In cricketing terms, it's all been downhill since then. These days, he has to make do with burbling into a mic for Guerilla Cricket and fanning the flames of his unrequited love for Jos Buttler. Sigh. He occasionally writes sport articles for The Independent.

Jason Hiscox grew up on low slow Devon pitches dreaming of Bothamesque exploits, but had to settle instead for occasional long journeys to Taunton. Transplanted to the big smoke after university his defensive tail end batting and slow bowling, pithily but accurately described as "non-spinning pies" (by a friend?) found its natural home in lower XIs of the club of which he is now Secretary.  A long time watcher of county cricket, he discovered alternative
commentary in 2010-11 and has been listening ever since, wibbling since the 2015 World Cup.
