I think it was Mike Atherton (it may have been John Crawley) who on joining the Lancashire ranks straight from Cambridge was nicknamed FEC. This did not mean "future England captain", as Christopher Martin-Jenkins fondly assumed, but something completely different (the E stood for "educated").

I've seen this attributed to a couple of different players (Strauss included), but I'm 100% sure I saw it in Atherton's autobiography many years ago. If I remember correctly, he arrived at the club to find it scrawled on his locker.
