Etched into the history books of The Elf with his prowess in the field, with the bat (where his French cricket style of batting has won plaudits from Walsall to Willenhall) and with the ball (taking his 250th wicket against Highwood Park in September 2014).
Jonty has contributed so much to the Elf, and is still one of the few original members of that 1987 team to still be playing today. With 270 wkts to his name, Jonty is the only player in club history to take back to back 5-fors, and one of only 3 players to register a hat-trick. Jonty has also amassed a record 136 DNB’s. A real travesty, considering he has a top score of 65.
