BUCKHURST HILL have signed prolific wicket-taker Carl Brungar for their Essex Premier League campaign.

Brungar (27) has played for the Auckland A side this summer, following his remarkable 2014/15 season, where he took 80 wickets at 12.35 in the Auckland Premier Grade Competition.

His wicket tally included a handful of 5-wicket bags and one astonishing 10-wicket match haul (15-84) with innings figures of 6-19 (10.2) and 9-65 (18.5).

The right-arm seamer was rewarded for his exploits with not only Auckland A selection but he was also the recipient of the North Shore Cricket Club and Auckland Cricket Association “Cricketer of the Year” awards.

In what has been described as “one of the most remarkable seasons ever at NSCC”, Brungar’s 80 wickets eclipsed the previous best season haul of 63 by some distance.

He topped the Auckland Premier wicket-charts by some margin, backing up his form from the previous two summers taking 17 wickets at 25.60 (2013/14) and 46 wickets at 17.87 (2014/15) respectively.

The kiwi seamer has his eyes on a first-class call-up next summer but first and foremost, he will spend the 2016 season plying his trade with Essex Premier League club Buckhurst Hill.
