Tom OConnor

CASTLEFORD have signed promising dual passport holding seamer Tom O'Connor for their 2016 campaign.

O’Connor (19) is quite the prospect who returned from Australia in January 2015 to trial with various County’s before taking up his studies at Cardiff Met.

Most recently he has spent the past two seasons playing in the Brisbane Grade Competition for the star-studded Gold Coast Dolphins club, playing predominantly 2nd and 3rd grade.

He returned to the UK and trialled with Glamorgan, Durham, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Sussex and Kent, before returning again in April where he spent the summer playing in the South Wales Premier League for Cardiff. Unfortunately he suffered from a spate of minor injuries throughout the season.

O'Connor will return to the UK this summer to help Castleford make an impression in the inaugural ECB Yorkshire North's Premier League.
