Albeit with a quiet and unassuming approach, Seb has unquestionably become a cornerstone of the modern OLCC. He is one of the club's most consistent performers; which is not achieved by luck - he is certainly not afraid to roll his sleeves up and dig in for gains. He sets the benchmark in the field and has the amongst the best successful catch and captaincy-win rates in the club; not forgetting some handy stump-to-stump bowling and ability to step in and wicket keep.

Evidently anyone that is willing to leave everything out there for the OLCC will have their 'moments' of self expression; particularly if they are a fiercely competitive batsman protecting an increasingly impressive batting average and an immaculate fielder. Clubs members now know full well that after Seb's wicket that the changing room is out of bounds for five to ten. But this is hardly a price to pay against the returns that Sebastian provides. 

I'm confident Seb would be ever-present, if academic employment and his infatuation for Reading FC never got in the way. If  eleven Steven Gerrard's make the perfect football team, then you couldn't look much further than a team of Seb Power's to win you most games of cricket.
