Brockhampton bring in Glenelg's Danny Irvine - 05/03/15

Danny IrvineBROCKHAMPTON have signed SACA Grade batsman Danny Irvine for their Birmingham League campaign this summer.

 Irvine (24) is a former South Australian age-group player who has, at the point of writing (05/03/15) played 60 matches (across all formats) in the West End Grade Competition scoring 1,628 runs at 28.56 for Glenelg Cricket Club, whom it joined from Southern District in 2012/13.

Irvine made his SACA Grade debut for Southern District in 2008/09, stepped up to the A Grade the following season before two predominantly full seasons in the top flight in 2010/11 and 2011/12.

He switched to his current club Glenelg in 2012/13 and contributed to a Premiership winning season hitting 478 runs at 29.88 (including 747 runs at 31.13 across the three formats).

Irvine struck another 468 runs at 27.53 in 2013/14 and 290 runs at 32.22 across all formats at the turn in the current season, in which he’s acting as deputy vice-captain in a first team that includes notable players Johan Botha (South Africa/South Australia), Cullen Bailey (Australia/South Australia), Chad Sayers (Australia A/South Australia), Tom Plant (South Australia) and Alex Carey (South Australia).

Irvine is known as not only a hard-working, dedicated and technically proficient batsman, but a dynamic fielder who (in 2012/13) was fourth in the Talbot-Smith Fielding Trophy - a competition-wide award for the best fielder.

Holder of a British Passport, Irvine played a summer abroad in 2012 for Sussex ECB Premier League club East Grinstead. His 409 runs at 31.46 helped the club to third place on the ladder.

Irvine has recently signed to return to Northern shores again in 2015, this time for Brockhampton in the strong Birmingham and District Premier League.
