Cricket and Football Star
21 year old Sam Kimber lives in Stoke Row and, as a player at Peppard Stoke Row Cricket Club, is now in his second year studying Sport Science at Aberystwyth University in Wales where he has become a key figure in the American Football team
Nicknamed ‘El Buffalo’, Sam plays corner back and helped his team – Tarannau Aberystwyth ( Welsh for Thunder) – record a first win in five years against Edge Hill Vikings and was made Man-of-the-Match toward the end of last year. Sam represented his university at cricket as opening batsman last summer. He is also Social Secretary for the cricket club, taking his role very seriously in bringing team harmony and morale as high as it can be by dressing up in the club mascot’s dinosaur outfit at one point!
Well done Sam for all your achievements so far!
