Mark Amselem v Agricola 1999 98. Run out. What a bummer!
Paul Rogers v Taverners 2003 96. In his last ever game for the club. Hungover and thinking he was on about 70 he was clean bowled

Ducks

Three ducks in one game Tinkerman Although it looked a never to be repeated feat, the Tinkerman managed to do it again at Captains Day 2007.  Big up to the big man and it could have been 4 had he not declined the offer to bat again..
Three ducks in one game The Smutmeister On Captains 2005, the feat achieved was as follows : run out, not facing, returned as lowest scorer, bowled for a golden, then a golden in his second innings. Hats off to the lad
Duck in both innings Tony Fletcher v. Malvern Chasers 1997
Most ducks in a season Joint Award Tony Fletcher 6 in 2001 and BK1 in 2017
