Nicknames: Clooney / Dazzler / Dringy

There’s only one Darrell Dring!! A self proclaimed “man of style” and a true man about town is still churning out the performances at the ripe old age of 40. Dringy is often heard to say to his team mates “I’m well known in the local cricketing fraternity!” and this is not far from the truth. If you mention Stonebroom Cricket Club to anybody, Darrell Dring are often the first two words uttered back and you never know the same may happen one day if you were to mention Clay Cross. He finds himself on the honours board twice for taking two 7-fer’s and has played some massive innings over the past 6 years although has missed out on that elusive first ton for The Cross.
Seven or eight years ago Dringy was very quick and used to get wickets with shear pace alone, now the body is starting to age slightly he uses his ability to make the ball move in both directions. He also has the knack of bowling a perfect line and length to frustrate batsmen.

With rumours circulating that Darrell might be ready to draw a line under his long and illustrious career it is hoped by club officials, players and fans alike that he will continue to play on because when he goes it will be a sad loss to the game.
