After the disappointment of Pat Botha being unable to join up with the Club as Club Pro, due to an ongoing injury, Balbriggan have been boosted by Clint Hinchliffe joining the Club for 2019.

The club though have moved quickly to sign a quality player in the shape of 22 year-old Australian Clint Hinchcliffe.

The all-rounder has represented Australia at Under 19 level and is also a regular member of the Western Australia Under 23 side.

He is a left-handed middle order batsman and a top quality left-arm slow bowler.

He has played in the Big Bash with Perth Scorchers, and showed his talent just over a year ago while scoring 35 and an unbeaten 49 for a Cricket Australia XI against England.

He looks a seriously talented cricketer and is sure to be a big attraction when he comes to North Dublin next month.
