Nick
Name: Niko Zographou
DoB: 18th September 1977
Born: Bristol
Playing role: Lower order batsman
Batting style: Right-hand bat
Bowling style: Right-arm slow
Nick name: Zogs, Beard

Zographou picked up a bat for the first time at the start of 2006 and finished the season with the most improved player of the year award. After first appearing in HOB colours towards the end of 2005 when the Old Boys were a couple of players short, the following season saw him miss just 5 matches. Celebrations usually only reserved for a double hundred at lords were witnessed at the YMCA when 'Zogs' scored his first runs in cricket. He has so far registered almost 100 runs for HOBs, including a very respectable top score of 21. Although prone to nutmegs, the one we call 'beard' - after developing facial stubble at the tender age of 12 - has more than once put his life on the line trying to stop boundaries, taking countless body hits along the way and somehow, despite having one of the most unorthodox ways of catching a ball (or anything else for that matter) Niko has managed to take 5 very good plucks in all.

Strengths: - Most improved player

Weaknesses: - He doesn't like cricket

Interesting fact: - When he was 10 years old, his mum had a to buy him a football trophy engraved with: "Niko is the best" because he didn't have any. Sadly, (for Niko) that is a true story
