Windsor CC welcome Weston to the fold

Last Saturday (21st April), saw Windsor welcome their newest overseas recruit to his first game on the beautiful surroundings of The Home Park. Adam Weston, a native of Brisbane in Australia, arrived in the country just last week to spend the summer plying his trade in the Royal Borough and the Thames Valley League. Primarily recruited to fill the shoes of Abe Smith, Adam looks set at present to be playing as a top three batsman in the 2nd team on a Saturday (under new captain Alex Hill) and with the first team on a Sunday. He certainly settled in quickly, scoring 64 on his debut this weekend.

Adam joins a long line of former Diggers CC players (based in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales) who have visited our shores to take a place with Windsor. Many Diggers have seen success at Windsor and the introduction of Adam further highlights the strong links that the two clubs have forged over the past decade. Indeed, the cup competition between the two clubs looks set to be resurrected this summer, as the Fitzroy Cup, is set to be played for the first time in 4 years.

Further to this, Windsor sees the return of fellow Aussie Wes Nichols for his second season at The Home Park. He will again be looking to help develop and strengthen the first team, primarily through his play, but also through assisting club captain Craig Bird as his vice captain on a Saturday. Further to this he has taken over the reigns of skippering the Sunday first XI and looking to help further develop the promising young players that are coming through the ranks.

Completing the overseas triumberent and also returning for his second season is Brendan Kemp. The cousin of current South African international Justin, Brendan adds further strength to playing ranks and provides the club with an excellent all-rounder from which to pick. Indeed, with this the club has three players that could easily fill the overseas birth in the top team and provide a wealth of talent to pick from.
