The quick, who comes highly recommended, has represented his Minor Association, (Nelson) playing Hawke Cup cricket since the age of 15.

Over the past two seasons, he has starred for the Central Districts Under-17s, and last summer (2020/21) was involved with the CD Fast Bowling Camp and NZ Under-19 Winter Camp.

The 2020/21 season was a strong one for Restieaux. He regularly opened the bowling for Nelson, who enjoyed a stellar season culminating with Chapple Cup (CD 50-Over tournament), and Hawke Cup (NZís Minor Association Competition), glory.

Holder of an Irish Passport, Restieaux is sure to make a serious impact at Woodale despite his youth.
