Over the years Inglewood has been lucky enough to have the following pro players come over and play for the club.
Debu has had a major influence on both Inglewood and Taranaki cricket since his arrival in 2003.
As a player Debu helped Inglewood reach their first two day final in over fifty years. He spent three seasons at Inglewood, scoring two tons and taking best bowling figures of 7/60.
Debu has since become the head coach of the Taranaki mens cricket team, and has worked one on one with many of Taranaki’s leading batsmen, including Will Young and Tom Bruce.
Steve joined Inglewood in the 2006/07 season and had instant success with both bat and ball. A leg spin bowler, Steve took 36 wickets at an average of 11.08.
Unfortunately Steve had to return to the UK early and was only able to play for the first half of the season. If he was able to play out the full season there is no doubt his wicket tally would sit on top of Inglewood’s record books.
In 2007 Zimbabwe international Gavin Ewing joined Inglewood for one season.
Gavin brought a hard nosed approach, and managed to get the best out of his team mates.
Gavin ended that season as Inglewood’s top run scorer, including a match winning century vs FDMC.
Inglewood made it all the way to the two day final that year, but rain ruined any chance of victory.
Ramesh had two stints with Inglewood, the first 2013/14 and the second in 2015/16.
A genuine quick bowler, Ramesh had a lot of local batsmen jumping around in the crease.
Ramesh finished with 75 wickets, at an average of just under 20.
Off the field Ramesh did some valuable coaching with the juniors, especially with the young fast bowlers. Many of those young bowlers have gone on to make the prem team thanks to his coaching.
