FULL NAME:           Ian John Laird     


DATE OF BIRTH:          20/12/61


MARITAL STATUS:       Yes, to the lovely Wendy.


OCCUPATION:              Bean Counter


NICKNAME/S:             Skimma (see above) 


YEARS PLAYED AT SUNBURY UNITED (approx.):   Unfortunately not long enough (5 years)   


PREVIOUS CLUBS:        Bundoora Park CC (formerly Bundoora Repatriation Hospital CC)                                             


FAVOURITE FOOD:          Pizza (Americana with plenty of mushrooms)                               


FAVOURITE DRINK:         Hot days VB (with an occasional Bourban cleanser) / Cold days a nice red.                               


FAVOURITE TV SHOW:     TVN                              


FAVOURITE MOVIE:         The Shawshank Redemption                               


MOST ADMIRED SPORTSPERSON:  Not that I’m a fan but it would have to be Tiger Woods simply because of his domination in a sport where the spoils are normally shared around.                  


AFL CLUB YOU SUPPORT:      Richmond                                               


YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT ON THE CRICKET FIELD FOR SUCC (INDIVIDUALLY):     Scoring a hundred and taking a hat trick in the same year (hat trick in the GF which unfortunately we lost).    


YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT ON THE CRICKET FIELD FOR SUCC (TEAM):    No premierships, so it’s probably being part of the team who currently holds the greatest number of runs scored in an innings at SUCC.                   


GREATEST INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE YOU HAVE SEEN ON A CRICKET FIELD:    Professional cricket aside, dare I say, the day we were crunched by Gisborne and one of their young blokes scored 232 runs.  


FUNNIEST THING YOU’VE SEEN ON A CRICKET FIELD:   Banga off his long run.                                                       


EASIEST TEAMMATE TO STIR:   I’ve been doing it for years and nothing much has changed, has it Banga !                                            


MOST ANNOYING TEAMMATE:  Peter Woollard because he makes batting look so damned easy !                                              


TEAMMATE MOST LIKELY TO ATTEND A DAY SPA:  Mark Richardson (handsome)              


FUNNIEST TEAMMATE AND WHY:  Couldn’t single out anyone in particular but it is always amusing listening to the likes of Knighty, Gimp, Injun, Evo, Woolly, Starky, Granty (have I missed anyone ?) and Co. hanging more shit on their teammates than they dish out to the opposition.     


ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF: I think “Average” but Wendy insists “Meticulous” (and I think after 22 years she’d know best !!)
