Great Witchingham snap up Kiwi Ryan McCone
Great Witchingham have filled their overseas player berth for next season's East Anglian Premier League campaign with the signing of New Zealander Ryan McCone.
The 23-year-old left-arm seam-bowling all-rounder plays first class cricket for Canterbury in his home country. McCone, a left-handed batsman, marked his first class debut in 2009 by hitting a century against Otago and has played in all three of Canterbury's matches in the four-day competition, the Plunket Shield, this season, taking 14 wickets.
A club statement said: 'First XI skipper James Spelman has worked hard in securing Ryan's signature and will be looking forward to having a cutting edge to the seam attack.
'James hopes this signing will show the ambition Great Witchingham have for the 2011 campaign, and will encourage other potential new recruits to join the club.'
McCone will play a part in the junior section of the club, where he will help with coaching on the popular Monday night sessions at Walcis Park. He will also work in local schools as part of the Clubmark programme and be available for individual coaching if required.
