Gloucester batsman Harrison Clarke will ply his trade in the 2018-2019 Mid North Coast Cricket Premier League season after linking up with Wingham.
Wingham captain Michael Rees said Clarke is one of a host of young talent who’ll get the chance to impress during the season.
“We’ve got the likes of Harrison Clarke, Ryan Smoothy, Blake Thompson, Hayden Essery and Blake Sky,” Michael said.
Clarke joins one of the form teams in the competition.
Wingham was scheduled to meet Macquarie in the inaugural competition’s grand final last year but due to wet weather it was cancelled.
Wingham’s first two matches of this season were called off due to wet weather.
Last Saturday, they opened their season account against northern side Macquarie.
A dismal batting collapse saw Macquarie post just 91 runs in their first innings.
With the handy work of his bowling teammates, Clarke caught one of Macquarie’s tailender.
Wingham’s top order lost two wickets before comfortably chasing down the total in 18 overs.
Skipper Michael Rees fell for four while Ben Scowen was caught on 24.
Ben Cole and Ryan Morris put on a 37 run partnership to close the innings.
As he was scheduled to come in at five, Clarke was unable to have a bat.
Wingham will travel to Oxley Oval to tackle Port City Leagues Magpies in round four.
Meanwhile, fellow Gloucester based batsman Ryan Yates was a part of United’s side that defeated Taree West last weekend.
Ryan came in at four and managed eight runs before being stumped by West wicket-keeper JJ Burton.
A strong batting display saw the side finish their 40 overs on 7/188.
Despite half-centuries to Burton and Josh Meldrum, West was bowled out for 156.
United will meet Macquarie at Wayne Richards Park on Saturday.
