Sam Webber

Full Name
Sam Christopher Webber

Date of Birth

Junior Club
Cromer Cricket Club / St Augustines College

Favourite TV show and why?
Going to have to go with 2, Entourage or The Inbetweeners. Every episode of The Inbetweener's had me in stitches and Entourage just because of the lavish lifestyle the characters live, that you can only dream of.

Favourite Movie and why?
The Shawshank Redemption... just unbelieveable, a must watch.

Funniest moment on the cricket field?
Seeing our opening bowler in the UK head to the top of his mark, run in for the first ball of the match, hit the crease and bowl, only for him to release thin air towards the batsman and turn around ask the umpire for the match ball still in his pocket. 

Funniest moment off the cricket field?
Well there's been a few. Spent a week in IOS last year that was both loose & pretty funny the whole time.

You are one of the driving forces behind a lot of our media content, yet you study something completely different at University. How did you get involved in design and IT?
Yeh it's an interesting combination studying Agricultural Economics and yet being heavily involed in digital design/social media/IT, definitely got some options for the future. The IT side of things has always been a passion of mine from running my own youtube channel to helping out the club with there social media and website content/design. Through wanting to learn how things are made in the digital world, I guess I just jumped at the opportuninty to learn what I could and apply it where it was needed to help out the club. It's been very beneficial, leading to some great opportunities and I would highly encourage others to jump on board the media team and lend a helping hand.

One of the things you are well known for are you “Backyard Cricketer” videos. Can we expect one out any time soon?
Haha, I some how knew this was coming. Yeh, it has seemingly been somewhat of a success. The crew of myself, Jarrod Rawlings, Sam Alexander and Reece Hodge were always getting plenty of games in during the summer, and so on one occasion I took on the idea of having hawkeye in your own backyard. Through learning how to video edit I then decided to elaborate more, include some score boards, overlay some channel 9 commentary and next thing you know, it was like walking out to a boxing day test match in your own backyard. People seemed to enjoy the content with it going more viral in the UK at one point than here. Unfortuneately, due to my workload it has taken a backseat and I haven't produced any videos in over a year. However, that's not to say there won't be any more in the future...

You won the prestigious Keith Marks Clubman of the Year last year, how special a moment was that?
Truly an unbelievable moment, still can't comprehend receiving such a prestigous club award and it was great to have the family there. Was certainly in shock getting a club award for doing something I enjoy and am thoroughly passionate about. I would strongly advise anyone at the club with a passion to help out in any shape or form, stick your hand up because you can never know what it will lead to and there is nothing better than knowing you're making your club better off at the end of the day.

You have had a couple of solid seasons behind the stumps in 2nd grade, what are you goals for the 2016/17 season?
I feel my glovework has always been strong over the years, but I'd like to kick-on and make a statement with my batting. Hopefully I can grab my first grade Hundred and make more than one this year.

Who is the best cricketer that you have played with?
Making my 1st grade debut and taking a stumping off Steve O'keefe was certainly a very special moment of mine, but just on pure talent alone, I was very fortunate to head out to the middle with Joe Root whilst playing for his local club Sheffield Collegiate CC in the UK. A very humble bloke and an unbelievably cricketer to watch.

How would you go about impressing the girl of your dreams?

Gee that's a tough one, definitely not the outgoing type, which doesn't help the cause. However, I think I'd stick to my strengths, dress sharp, pick out a nice bar/restaurant and put on a charming character. All else fails, I hear Billy says the Boatshed gos alright on a Saturday.   

Who at Manly would you most like to share a car trip to Campbelltown with?
Probably a crew of Sam Alexander, Billy D'arcy and of course the big man Will Harding. The combination of endless premier league banter between myself and Will, and some of Billy's more interesting stories would more than pass the time to Campbeltown. Needed Sammoes to provide the tunes as well.

Who at Manly would you least like to share a car trip to Campbelltown with?
Look, if he's driving Tom Kaye, I've heard the man is a danger on our roads. Great guy and would be top company down to Campbeltown... it's just whether we'd make it at all :p

What do you think the club needs to improve on for the 2016/17 season?
A bit of ownership, both on and off the field from players. We are very fortunate to have such a strong junior pathway program that sees the club in a fantastic position, but dominated by a majority of players under 25. I think to take a step forward and go from a great to an awesome club, it would be fantastic to see players take ownership on the field (not expect someone else to produce the moment of brilliance to swing the game) and more so off the field. To see more guys stick up their hand to help the club out with local training sessions, heping out at events and the general running of the club behind the scenes, is where we will truly improve this season.

What is your most embarrassing moment on the field?
As a young leg-spinner for St Augustines in (I think U13s/U14's), out to the crease came a scraggly looking peninsula batsman no.9, he cracked a joke as he walked to the crease, to center in mediocre fashion and was set in his stance. To my dismay, out came an awful half tracker which was pumped to the boudary... that was the first time I met Sam Alexander.

Who is your tip for the D.G. Medal this season for their work on the circuit?
With Sam Gainsford taking it out last year, this is a tough one to pick. I'd like to back myself in but then I've got to be realistic. Going to side with a dark horse and say Will Outred, loves a circuit and loves a cold beverage bakc at the bowlo, followed by many in the corso.

Who's Manly Cricket shoes, either past or present, would you like to be in for a day?
Reece Hodge, the boy is playing for the Wallabies. What more could you want?

Who were the best cricketers coming through the age groups with you?
Javed Badyari was certainly the promising young talent of my age group. Coming through juniors Jarv was unplayable with the ball in hand and destructive with the bat.
