Haywards Heath CC have announced the signing of their new Australian overseas player, 19 year old Matt O’Keeffe, who plays for Midland-Guildford in Perth’s much vaunted WADCA competition.

O’Keeffe comes highly recommended as a second grade opening bowler and as a very capable lower order batsman and fielder. He is a very competitive, passionate cricketer on and off the field and the coach at MGCC, Chris Pavic, expects big things, describing him as a key player of their future. Heath are delighted to secure the services of O’Keeffe for the summer season and look forward to his arrival in the first week of April.

O’Keeffe will spend the summer staying at Great Walstead and the Club are extremely grateful to the school for their continued support. In return for his keep, O’Keeffe will spend time coaching cricket to the pupils and assisting the sports master in other sports.

Any new member wishing to join O’Keeffe and his new team mates are welcome to attend indoor nets at Warden Park school on Thursdays from 8pm onwards, alternatively pls contact Cricket Manager Matt Jones at
