Foster coming to Kensham Park

Kensham Park is preparing to welcome another overseas player for the 2017 Tolchards Devon Cricket League season.

Matt Foster is 23 and a highly regarded all-rounder from Brisbane where he plays first grade for Western Suburbs District CC.

He is averaging around 10 with the ball and 30 with the bat this season, and has first grade centuries under his belt in previous seasons.

He is an opening bowler and middle order hard hitting batter.

He has one previous season in the UK with Sprowston CC in 2013 where he scored 1500 runs and took 51 wickets in all competitions.

Bradninch skipper Gary Chappell is delighted with the club’s latest signing and says:

“If he lives up to expectation I highly doubt there will be a better cricketer in the league.

He is travelling with his partner Emily, who is also a keen cricket player and coach. I have little doubt that Emily and Matt will prove invaluable to the club both on and off the field as they help the younger members of the men’s team, as well as all the junior teams.”

NB we await a picture of Matthew and then will of course bring you our first interview with the new man at the Ninch!
