Bobby Chapman

Making his Second Eleven debut as a fast medium bowler in 1989, locally-born Bobby Chapman joined the full time Notts staff in 1992.

He made his fist-class debut the same summer against Warwickshire at Edgbaston when both Lewis and Cairns were absent through injury.

In 1994 he was not seen at all in the First Team but played three first-class and five Sunday League games and the following season featured in eight first-class games, though at more than 70 runs each, his wickets were expensive.

He played for the county until 1996, with a best return of 6-105 and his most notable performance was against the South Africans in a tour match at Trent Bridge, taking five wickets, including dismissing opening batsman, Liebenburg for 0 in each innings.
