Trowbridge Cricket Club are an ECB focus club playing in the West of England Premier League based in the South West of England, close to the historic city of Bath.
As a heavily family orientated club, we are looking to bring over an opening/top order batsman interested in not only playing a season in the UK but also wanting to get involved with all aspects of the club. As a strong 1st XI playing in an ECB Premier League we are seeking a talented batsman/all-rounder, with experience of at least playing Aus 2nd Grade or NZ equivalent standard. Our emphasis will be on the batting strength, but having a spin/seam bowling option would also be a bonus to add to our already strong bowling attack.
We are located in a great base for travelling across the UK, with the city of Bath just a short 15 minute train journey away and the likes of London/Bristol/Cardiff/Birmingham within easy reach. It would be the perfect opportunity for a young player looking for a summer travelling in the UK whilst playing cricket at an ECB Premier League 3 level for a highly competitive team expected to challenge for the league title.
Accommodation and a job (either behind the club bar or ground work) will be included, and flights/weekly fee would be negotiable depending on experience. We also have strong links with the highly reputable cricket brand, Neon Cricket, who would have opportunities available for the overseas player to get involved with the brand during the season - previous examples include our 2022 overseas player bowling to Ian Bell during a recent Cricket District video!
Please note you will need to hold, or be eligible to apply for, a Tier 5 youth mobility visa for the duration of your visit. Due to current visa regulations we will only be able to discuss the opportunity with applicants able to meet this criteria.
