Rebecca Chiverton-Burt – Parents’ Coordinator
I work as the liaison for Parents and new comers into the Colts Section and whilst having no cricketing experience myself, I am a parent of 2 Colts within the Club as well as a teenage Senior cricket player and am married to a lifelong cricketer.
My role at the club covers marketing, organisation, fundraising and promoting the image of the Youth section as well as supporting our Membership Secretary and coordinating our Managers and Coaches.
Professionally, I work within Recruitment and HR within the Logistics Industry.
You can find me at BCC on a Friday evening during Colts training or email me at Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org
As a young lad I played a Representative County Cricket for Essex at U13 - U16 age groups as a right handed batsman and an off break bowler.
I moved to Hampshire when I was aged 18 and joined Cadnam Cricket Club in the New Forest, captaining the 2nd XI as a 19 year old before moving to Trojans in Southampton in my early 20’s for the opportunity of playing cricket at a higher level.
I stopped playing in 1995 when Rugby took over from a playing and coaching perspective.
My two kids both love playing Cricket with Abi playing District Cricket for the U16’s and Burridge Ladies and Ben playing for the U15’s at Burridge and the Men’s 4th XI on a Saturday.
My wife is now a “cricket convert” claiming that there is nothing better than watching 20:20 Cricket at the Ageas Bowl on a warm summer evening. To be honest, I think it may have something to do with the excuse of a few large glasses of wine and the opportunity to ‘ogle’ the good looking guys playing under the cover of her sun glasses!
I am a firm believer in playing any sport to win but not at all costs. It is important to learn to ‘come 2nd’ gracefully and learn from the experience to make yourself a better player. It is important for kids of all abilities and backgrounds to have the opportunity to play cricket and to develop to the best of their ability in a safe and enjoyable environment; something all sometimes take for granted but are so lucky to have at Burridge Cricket Club.
I have multiple playing experiences among counties at age group, academy and 2nd XI level, and was lucky enough to represent West of England Region at ages 13 to 15.
I have an ECB level 2 coaching qualification with 5 years of coaching experience. Having spent the last two winters playing and coaching in Australia and South Africa respectively, I have developed valuable coaching methods used by many professionals.
I will look to specialise in fielding and wicket keeping on a Friday evening and will be offering one on one private lessons, workshops, and summer camps throughout the course of the summer.
I also run my own cricket coaching company Olympic Cricket who work very closely with Burridge Cricket Club.
Please contact me on 07804543303 or Email email@example.com for more information.
Gary Steward; U11s Manager & Child Welfare Officer
During my younger years I played schools cricket before playing village cricket at various clubs on and off.
I played cricket in the Royal Navy and for a club near Yeovil, Sparkford Cricket Club in Somerset. A claim to fame in the 80s was playing against a Somerset CC XI and during my two overs I got smashed all over the ground by one Ian 'Beefy' Botham in a charity game. I had 2 seasons with Yeovil Town FC in the early 80s.
I played some cricket in the police, but all my attention was focused on football during my 20s and 30s. I have played for a number of clubs at county and regional level, but then went into football management.
In recent years I have been heavily involved in Hampshire Police football, youth football within Whiteley and co managing at Locks Heath FC. I have been a school governor at Locks Heath Juniors and now Henry Cort Community College, spanning 8 yrs. I am the current U11 Colts manager and Club Welfare Officer. So if you have any concerns i'm your man!

Following a brief and uneventful playing career at school and university, I have made the move into management, where my skills and love of the game are better suited.

In my spare time I run a management consultancy mdj2 associates and I am a published author having written The Reluctant Networker (available on Amazon).
Richard Kenway - Under 13’s Coach

Professionally I am now one of the Directors of Botley Roofing and we carry out roofing works all over the South of England.
Hello, I am pleased to be one of the colts co-ordinators at Burridge CC and the U11 Coach for 2016. I have been with Burridge as a player since 1996. I made my Southern Premier League debut in 1983 and played first team cricket for almost 30 years. Injury curtailed my career and I have now gone into coaching and am a qualified ECB level 2 coach.
As a left handed opening bat and wicket keeper, ( I did bowl 1 over against Hungerford in 1998 1 over 1 maiden 0 for 0 against a Hampshire’s Julian Wood who just stood and laughed at me) I have been fortunate to play against some well-known figures within the game for Gosport Borough, Hambledon, United Services and BCC. I have represented the Southern League rep teams for many years, the Hampshire Cricket Board, U13 to U19 Hampshire County sides, trialled at Warwickshire, Surrey and Northants, played for the British Police during my 21 years police service and toured Western Australia in 2001 playing in a World Police Cricket Tournament where I top scored with 136 and was the leading run scorer in the tournament. The highlight of my playing career was co-piloting a very large Gin Palace down the Swan River from Perth to Freemantle with one of cricket greatest ever bowlers Dennis Lillee.
Burridge is a home from home for my family and I, my father Jim has been the first team scorer for 25 years and regularly scores at Lords for the Royal Navy, my 11 year Oli is a regular in the colts set up and my wife Zoe a regular sat outside the club house with a large red wine looking for our two year old Jude.
I specialise in batting and wicket keeping and look forward to assisting our new club coach Paul “Buzzers” Barsby and learning from this gentlemen of local cricket. Please feel free to contact me on any colts or coaching matters.
Paul “Buzzers” Barsby -
I was both delighted and flattered when approached by Rick and Neil to become involved with Burridge Cricket Club. Exciting times lie ahead. It is more than apparent that an enormous amount of work has gone on behind the scenes. Neil along with parents, managers and coaches are passionate about their work with a view to making Burridge as successful as possible.
Whilst a lot of emphasis is placed on the adult teams it should be noted that the bedrock and structure of the club remains with a successful colts set up to safeguard the future.
I look forward to working with all managers and coaches to help improve players abilities in any way I can. Remember even if it's only a small change, collectively that can have a significant effect.
The introduction of youngsters to men's cricket should also not go unnoticed and their first exposure at that level should be a pleasurable one. This is where our senior players, with their wealth of playing experience can lead the way, after all we all had to start somewhere and those memories last a lifetime.
Last and certainly not least, let's not forget the ladies. It was really encouraging to see such a splendid turnout at Winter nets and their contribution to the club should not be underestimated.
So to conclude, I look forward to an exciting season. Let's hope we enjoy success at all levels but let us also not forget to play the game hard but fair whilst respecting our opposition and also in the spirit of the game that we have enjoy so much.
Paul Rockett -
Assistant Coach BCC U11 & U9
If you have a spare few hours to kill, I could bore you to death about growing up a stone’s throw away from the country ground in Taunton and spending my weekends watching Botham, Richards and Garner taking apart every team in the country for fun, or somehow persuading my school pals to club together to buy me the new Duncan Fernley ‘Attack with Ian Botham’ bat, or walking with my hero Botham for a small part of the John O’Groats-Lands End charity walk.
I then somehow forgot about cricket for a long long time, until my son decided to pick up a plastic bat, and declare that he was one day going to open the batting for England. Through him I have now rediscovered what made me fall in love with cricket in the first place, and we now spend our summers watching Hampshire and the odd England match together, as well as lots of cricket on TV and of course his matches for school and Burridge. And given we spend so much time at Burridge, it kind of made sense to get involved. I’ve never regretted it. I’ve met some great people who make me laugh a lot, and really enjoy being part of a great club which genuinely is passionate about introducing cricket to children in the local area.
