Adi Aymes(Fitness Coach)
|Adi joined the Hawks during the 2005/06 season as a dedicated fitness coach, and made a tremendous impact on the stamina of the players, before taking on the additional role of club general manager in July 2006.
His dual interest in football and cricket saw him play the former in his youth as far as making appearances for Bristol Rovers reserves, and managing Lymington Town, before turning his attentions full time to Cricket at the age of 24.
During his professional career he spent 17 years with Hampshire as wicket keeper and batsman, retiring prematurely in 2002 due to a prolonged knee injury.
In First-Class cricket Adi claimed 516 catches, 44 stumpings and scored 7338 runs with eight hundreds and 38 half-centuries. In the limited-overs game his figures were 215 catches, 53 stumpings, plus 2269 runs with six 50s. He also played in the winning 1991 NatWest Final side at Lords and was awarded a testimonial by Hampshire in 2000.
During the 2002/03 football season he helped manage Southern League side Fleet Town away from relegation alongside Mark Dennis, before returning to Hampshire Cricket as a wicket keeping coach, as well as captaining Hurlsey Park Cricket Club.
