Phil Ottaway

Joined club in 1983 from Swalwell. Played for 1XI until his decision to only play 2XI cricket after injuries. The only player to score 3 centuries for both the 1XI and 2XI, his 160* in the 1XI in 1986 was at the time the highest score for the side until Richard Dreyer's 164* in 1992, it was also the highest score in the league that year.

His score of 146* against Chopwell in 2000 was the 1st century in the 2XI for 10 years. Retired at the end of the 2004 season after helping guide the 2XI to promotion. Played his final game in the 1XI against Blyth as the side also clinched promotion.
