Brentham sign Kensy quick - 03/02/15

Scott AufderheideBRENTHAM have signed Kensington seamer Scott Aufderheide for their MCCL Division 2 campaign.

Aufderheide (22) is an opening bowler of some pedigree playing for Kensington District in South Australia’s Grade Competition.

He has to date played 46 matches for Kensington – a prestigious club that boasts Jake Brown, Daniel Worrall, Elliot Opie, Aaron O’Brien, Alex Ross, Andrew McDonald (South Australian Redbacks) and Freddie van den Bergh (Surrey) in their ranks.

He has played predominantly in the B Grade, albeit has featured in the top flight, since making his District debut in 2010/11. He has since taken 71 wickets at 21.01 (41 in B Grade) to include an aggregate topping 23 scalps during Kensington’s B Grade Premiership in 2013/14. He has played a handful of A Grade matches with his best bowling performance of 2-42 on debut against Woodville.

Aufderheide moved to Kensington after a prolific junior career in South Australian Country cricket for Lobethal. Over 41 matches, he scored 306 runs including a highest score of 97* alongside 88 wickets at 12 en-route to four successful A Grade Premierships for Lobethal.

He also excelled in junior representative cricket – topping the South Australian wicket-charts during the 2010/11 Australian Under-19 Championships in December 2010. His 8 wickets at 22.37 ranked him just outside the top 10 wicket-takers in the competition.

Notably, Adelaide Strikers leggie Adam Zampa topped the charts with 13 wickets, narrowly followed by Perth Scorchers (and former Australian Test) left arm tweaker Ashton Agar (12). Other notable current State bowlers on show during this tournament included Joel Paris (10), Matt Dixon (9), Gurinder Sandhu (3) and Australian quicks Sean Abbott and Pat Cummins (5).

After his strong showing for the Under-19s, Aufderheide was selected for the South Australian Country (Seniors) for the 2010/11 National Country Cricket Championships in January 2011. He has since made the progression into Grade cricket for Kensington and is pushing for regular A Grade inclusion.

Aufderheide is eager to impress for Brentham as they push for the Middlesex County Cricket League Division 2 title in 2015.
