Neil is a mature young man with a good competitive attitude who should become a regular 1st team player before long. A genuine allrounder, his batting is solid and based on good technique and crisp timing. At this stage of his career, his batting is more advanced than his medium paced bowling but this will develop as he gains more pace and experience. An excellent pair of hands in the deep, but his nickname of “treacle” indicates that he is not going to beat many in a sprint to the tea room. (MB, 2004)
