We are missing a lot of data relating to years 1946-1999, some 1922-1939 and most 1904 to 1914. Since the late 1960s to 1997 Tony Whiteway must have scored around 15,000 at a commendable average. Likewise Michael Blumberg is alleged to have scored in excess of 10,000 runs at a more modest average. Granny Alston kept meticulous records so we know he scored 8045 runs 1950 -1984. Mike Ghersie who led a great revival of Nomads fortunes in the mid 1970s was a dashing batsmen who scored a lot of runs for Nomads over nearly 30 years but did not play very regularly after his period as skipper. Peter Brook spoke in awe of Pat Mean’s prowess in the early 50s but we only have his figures for 1953 when hit 1136 runs. Tom Chamberlain nudged and nurdled his way to a mountain of runs in the 1950s.

Granny took 1173 wickets. Sidney Caulfield must have taken a load of wickets or near. He took 37 in 1911 and played 1904-1914 and 1922 to 1939. Likewise VJ Matthews who played before WW1 and was still playing in 1939. Michael Blumberg had taken well over 500 wickets when his shoulder finally gave out October 2010. John Nagenda took several hundred wickets as did Dr Mike Wilkins but over too short a period

Batting & Bowling since 2000

Since the millenium the heaviest scorer has been Tom Brockton as shown below and Chris Page despite a late start has taken most wickets.

If anyone has kept their own record of Nomads runs or wickets do let us know as we can include you. There maybe some more to add to this list.

This is very much work in progress.

* These players had a Nomads career before 2000. +
There are some scoresheets from the Shropshire tours missing. This effects mostly Russell Mann, Andrew Gregory and maybe Andy Stokes. Also at present three scoresheets from the March 2001 visit to Sporting Alfas are missing which will effect the figures of Charlton Lamb and Michael Blumberg, batting and bowling.

Most probably there are some errors in these figures. If you spot some do let us know. Similarly some cricketers keep a record. If you are one of these and the figures above do not tally just let us know and we will correct the stats.
