Parchment is an ex-international batting all-rounder who represented the West Indies in 10 matches across all three formats, in addition to playing 67 first-class and 43 list A games over an 13-year career.

He has also been, without doubt, one of the most dominant professionals in league cricket abroad.

Parchment then spent a season with Ramsbottom (900 runs at 36 and 64 wickets at 17.15) and the 2010 season saw him impress at Blackrod (816 runs at 48 and 59 wickets at 15.19).

In 2012 he racked up 3 league hundreds amonst 844 runs at 56.27 then added 50 wickets at 13.76 with three 5-fors for Haverigg in the North Lancs and Cumbria Premier League.

In 2013-14, he played for Haslingden and has been one of the stand-out professionals with both bat and ball - 1,189 runs at 54.04 and 53 wickets at 21.26 in 2013 followed by 753 runs at 41.83 and 63 wickets at 14.44.

Last summer he ventured to Ireland, helping North County to second in Division 1 - finishing second on the league/cup combined run charts with 766 runs at 45.06 alongside 31 wickets at 19.84.

Parchment will now bring his talent and experience to Atherton CC in the Bolton Cricket League.
