Nigel Wheeler - Advisory Board Member

Nigel comes from a long standing farming family from Kent; probably the longest surviving hop growers in the land. Sent away to Sussex and the Midlands for education, he has kept close contacts with the county. He was High Sheriff of Kent 2007-8, he is a Kent Ambassador for the K.C.C. and is involved in a number of local charities and organisations.
A schoolmaster at Eastbourne College for 30 years; Master-in-Charge of cricket for all that time and is therefore slightly responsible for the career of a certain E.S.H. Giddins, one of his more volatile pupils! He was a Housemaster, teacher of English, Drama and Cricket, lover of hearty singing in chapel and elsewhere, a keen Fives player and he always insisted on having his classroom on the ground floor so that he could cycle straight in. He managed the school cricketers on tours to New Zealand, Australia (x2), Barbados (x3) and The Channel Isles (x3). He usually arranged for "entertainers" and "song and sketch performers" to accompany the cricket matches. In New Zealand all of the cricketers were involved in "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
...
In 1969, Nigel formed the Scorpions Cricket Club with his school friend, the Ghanan leg spinner, A.K.N. Ollennu.
...
Nigel has arranged overseas tours chiefly in a vain attempt to secure victories. The Scorpions have visited Sierra Leone (x2), The Gambia (x2), Argentina and Chile, Namibia, Paris (x10) and Le Manga (x2).
Nigel has worked in New Zealand, travelled anywhere his friends will have him and always claimed that teaching was a job to do between holidays. He is a Justice of the Peace and retired Chairman of a School Governing Body and his hobbies include cycling slowly, enjoying fine wine, cricket (top score 143 v The Wine Trade), beer and brewing, racketball, fives, theatre, classical music and golf - only just! - in fact he has started a club for those who admit that they are poor golfers and wish to play on modest courses with equally poor players. His cricket clubs include: M.C.C., Kent C.C.C. (Life Member), Band of Brothers, Bluemantles, Yellowhammers, Oxford University Authentics, Cambridge University Crusaders, Stoics, Eclectics, Willows (New Zealand), Sussex Martlets, Lancing Rovers, Old Eastbournians, Scorpions and, of course, Lashings.
