Karl "DJ Speedo" Baker
A LinkedIn photo older than the average age of the team, is a reminder that Karl still hangs on to the past. Although his "frame" has moved up a few sizes in recent years, his wardrobe hasn't. Karl, Superdry Medium size is only for the Japanese and Action Man dolls! An Ex-professional footballer for Colchester and part-time DJ, Karl is multi talented. The only problem is with two glass knees he is pretty much disabled. In fact he would be more use in the field, if we planted him at one end of the wicket and placed bails on his head.
However, stick a bat in his hand and Karl really comes into his own. Never shy of opening the batting no matter what the situation. Karl is an all round nice guy and is great with the younger members of the squad. He spends a lot of his time raising money and applying for grants to keep the club expanding and personally sponsers the team through his business, which is a fantastic commitment.
Due to the fact that he does so much for the club, we overlook the fact that he is from T'up Norf and concentrate on the other underprivileged (Northern) player(s) instead.
