Springbok bowls and bats into Hungerford

The 20-year old top order batsman and seamer has been playing in the North West Province Premier League for Impala, the club that has produced the likes of Lancashire’s Andrea Agathagelou, Lions’ Dwaine Pretorius and South African test pair Friedel de Wet and Alviro Petersen.
Mostert has established himself as a key first team player for Impala and comes to the UK with the recommendation of Impala’s cricket manager Pieter van Niekerk.
He was rated ninth in the league batting aggregates lasts eason with 518 runs at 64.75, including a best of 101 not out in the 65-over competition. He also excelled in the 50-overs competition, hitting 496 runs at 49.60, also claiming 28 wickets at 16.25 with his medium pace.
He was included in the North West Country Districts team for the end of season National Rural Week, having previously represented the North West at under-11 level and the East North West right through the age-groups to under-17.
He is also an accomplished indoor cricketer and has represented the Province’s under-23 side.
Hungerford have also carried out off the field work by refurbishing the club’s pavilion interior and the club will host Berkshire and West Berkshire District representative junior fixtures throughout the season.
The club’s recent AGM also opted to reduce the club’s senior membership to £1, with players’ match fees set at £10 per game.
Chairman Geordie Taylor said: “People lead such busy lives these days, the committee wanted to encourage players to turn out on a ‘pay-as-you-play’ basis rather than insisting on large up-front fees to join the club.
“We hope this will see more players come to Hungerford, even if it’s for just a handful of games over the season.”
Anyone wishing to contact the club can call Taylor on 07836 330815.
