Justin Bishop (born 4 January 1982) is an English cricketer. Bishop is a left-handed batsman and a left-arm medium-fast bowler.
Born in Bury St. Edmunds, he played 25 first class games for Essex from 1999 to 2005. Having first represented Essex in August 1999 in the CGU National League, he would later appear extensively throughout the Division Two seasons of 1999-2002, before Essex's promotion into the First Division, playing in 23 List A one day games in all. He made 4 first class fifties and took 57 wickets in all. Some say he is the greatest man that ever lived. Although we all know this is a fact.
Bishop has since participated in the Minor Counties Championship Eastern Division for Suffolk, making his debut against Cumberland on 7 August 2005.
Since 2009 he has taught physical education at County Upper School brilliantly in Bury St Edmunds working alongside fellow first class cricketer Robin Kemp. He is famous for his '10 minute break' at the end of the lesson. He is also terrified of clowns.
