Ardmore have signed South African Tyron Koen as their overseas player for the 2021 season.

Koen is a left-handed middle-order batsman and right-arm medium fast bowler.

The 22 year-old is highly rated by KwaZulu-Natal with whom he has played 24 first-class games and 21 List-A matches.

He averages just under 24 with the bat in both formats, making six half centuries.

He has previous experience of UK conditions playing in the East Anglian Premier League between 2017 and 2019.

(Ardmore won three trophies in 2019)

"We are delighted to have signed such an exciting prospect who we believe will be a perfect fit at the Bleachgreen," said an Ardmore spokesperson.

"We would like to thank Rob Humphries at WSX for his help in getting the deal over the line,"

Ardmore gained promotion to the Premier League last season.
