COGGESHALL TOWN have signed WACA Rookie Liam O'Connor for their Two Counties Championship campaign.

O’Connor (22) is a leg-spin bowling prospect on a Western Warriors Rookie Contract for the 2015/16 season.

He has enjoyed another barnstorming summer in Perth, following several prolific seasons for WACA grade club Bayswater-Morley.

O’Connor has played a leading role for the WA Under-23s in the Futures League Competition, including best match figures of 9/99 (3/40, 6/59) against Queensland.

He has also featured in two WA XI matches against the touring Indian and New Zealand sides, taking the profile wickets of MS Dhoni and Brendan McCulllum, both stumped by keeper Josh Inglis.

O’Connor has emerged as one of the State’s most promising spin-bowling talents in recent years, culminating with his Rookie contract this summer.

In a view to continuing his development and push for first-class selection, the leg-spinner has signed with Coggeshall to play in the top tier of the Two Counties Cricket Championship in 2016.
