Craig Bond joined Nostell in 2013, with the ambition of getting a game for the seconds and propping up the bar for the reminder of the time. Bond's patient style of batting soon reaped rewards with an excellent season in 2014 which saw him promoted to the first team.
2016 wasn't the year for Bond, who saw himself dropped down the order to try and re-gain form, but over 880 runs in 3 seasons demonstrates his ability. If Bond can apply himself during 2017 then runs will come - and the overs will pass by!
