Name: Darren Hughes

What do you do in “real life”?

Work on the commercial side for a translation company, which is quite ironic because as most people know I struggle to even speak English properly most of the time.  Also watch Spurs disappoint on a regular basis.

How did you get involved with Chippenham Cricket Club?

I helped the club start up in 1993  with a few others from the village.

What is your first cricketing memory?

Coming home from school and seeing Mike Procter on the telly take a hat trick for Gloucestershire in a Gillette Cup semi final. The excitement of the crowd and his teammates caught my imagination. I have never taken a hat trick myself but have managed to emulate Procter in one regard, by bowling off the wrong foot for most of my cricket career!
