Kevin Whitmore profile

  • Kevin "Hatrick" Whitmore
  • Instantly recognisable by his different length legs, Kev is one of Mere CC's founding fathers. Right handed bat who always threatens to score big once in. Has been known to hold the "pose" longer than a catalogue model. Came late into cricket after a successful career in football, plying his trade for West Ham, a knee injury finally forcing him to retire at 33. Most famous probably as a stunt double in the eponymous football/war film "Escape to Victory" when he came up against some of his old footballing enemies once again. Kevin will be remembered in Mere cricket history for his match winning catch, juggling deep on the boundary against Buckhorn and the subsequent adulation heaped upon him by his on-rushing teammates. Equally well known for his reaction to an early dismissal..Kevin likes to take a contemplative lap or two of the boundary whilst collecting his thoughts and re-composing himself. He currently holds the lap record and is unlikely to relinquish it readily. A medium paced bowler with a trademark in-swinger which has been the undoing of many. Now finds himself in regular competition for the wickets with daughter Robyn who's unerring accuracy and consistent pace is certainly not in keeping with her Father's. Also Mere CC's most gifted dancer as many a nightclub audience will testify, whether or not he has the club poodle under one arm.
