Ocean Telecom’s Sales Director competes in the Caribbean Cup as part of the Over 50’s England Cricket Team.

About Giles Ecclestone

Before starting at Ocean Telecom in 2002, Giles was a professional cricketer playing for Essex and, later on, South Africa. He continued playing after retiring from full-time and joined the Over 50’s England Cricket Team in 2019.

He has seen amazing scores over the years, including the highest score ever in official over-50s cricket which is one of the reasons why he was selected for the England Squad. Now, he is taking part in the Caribbean Cup and hoping to take England all the way!

About the Caribbean Cup
