With the UCCE teams' matches against county sides coming to an end, we take a look at the performances of the various players originating from non-test countries to have featured for the University sides this year.
German born, but English raised, Charlie Duffell played in all three of Oxford UCCE's first-class matches this year, against Glamorgan, Leicestershire and Middlesex. He went without much success, scoring fifteen runs at an average of 3.75. He did not bowl.
Bermudian wicket-keeper Jekon Edness has not played for Bermuda since the Intercontinental Cup game against Canada at Sunnybrook Park, Toronto in August 2004, but has been forging a career in university cricket since last year.
He has played twice for Cardiff UCCE this year, against Kent and Sussex. Against Kent, he scored 23 not out batting at number 11. This gained him a promotion to number ten for the second innings when he scored 18. Kent won the match by an innings. Against Sussex, he did not bat in a rain-affected draw, but performed admirably with the gloves in the only Sussex innings, taking two catches and a stumping.
Kenyan born, but like Charlie Duffell English raised, Patrick Foster, who has played second XI cricket for Northamptonshire, played three first-class matches for Durham UCCE this year, scoring 46 runs at 9.20, and taking eleven wickets at a decent average of 28.90. His victims included former England Test player Jason Gallian and current England player Liam Plunkett.
Scott MacLennan, who played in the Under-19 World Cup for Scotland last year, made his first-class debut for Cambridge UCCE this year against Derbyshire. He scored five in ther first innings and four not out in the second. He did not bowl.
Denmark's Johan Malcolm became the sixth Danish player to play first-class cricket when he played this year for Loughborough UCCE against Yorkshire. He scored 30 in the first innings and five in the second as Yorkshire won a very close game by just one run.
Seven-time Irish international Greg Thompson played a first-class match for Durham UCCE against Durham at the beginning of May. In a match that saw Scotsman Kyle Coetzer score an unbeaten 153 for the county side, Thompson was surprisingly not called upon to bowl his leg-spin, playing solely as a batsman. He was the second highest scorer in the Durham UCCE first innings with 38, but was dismissed first ball in the second.
