Fox Lodge have signed 22 year-old South African all-rounder Coenie Nel as their overseas player for the 2019 season.

He replaces fellow countryman Cebo Tshiki who was ineligible to play in the Championship after the Ballymagorry side were relegated last season.

Nel is a former Boland U19 player who bats and bowls right-handed.

He has previous UK experience playing for Poloc in Scotland last season.

He enjoyed great success at the Scottish top flight club, with the highlight being a match-winning hundred against West of Scotland which included seven sixes.

He is sure to enjoy himself in the surrounds of Ballymagorry - whether opposition bowlers enjoy it so much remains to be seen.
