Edward Carter, otherwise known as Ted, Tedster and Sir Richard Tedley, is the fifth Honorary Member in the club's history, and eldest son of OLCC President, Graham Carter. 


The once fiery-tempered cricketer with a bad attitude, has calmed down somewhat, now he's well into his thirties. The toys he regularly threw out of the pram have now being collected off the floor.


As a right-arm opening bowler and useful middle-order batsman, Ted's on-field performances as an all-rounder, since his debut in 1993, have often been the deciding factor of match results. His temperament with the bat has improved immensely, which could well be put down to the importance of the club stats! His once rash, up-and-under shot selection, has been replaced with measured and controlled play, often picking up the pieces following top-order collapses.


On the bowling front, he still roars in with aggression, towards the stumps at a slight angle, regularly beating the outside edge. Woe betide anyone who drops a catch behind the stumps! 


His prowess as a fielder is most known for his safe pair of hands. It is very rare indeed to see him drop a catch and he's pulled off a few blinders in the outfield too. 


A regular tourist, having notched up multiple trips to the West Country, Saumur and Norfolk in the past, Sir Richard has also had some memorable off-field performances. He was Tour Joker in 2003 and made up half of the double act The Hooray Henrys, who famously wowed the crowds in the Links Hotel, West Runton.


If an updated pack of OLCC Top Trumps were ever to be made, Ted's card would be highly valuable and one you wouldn't want to lose.
