WEMBLEY have signed talented Australian batsman Johnathan Dalton for their Middlesex County League campaign this summer. 

Dalton (19) is making his way through the South Australian ranks in Adelaide. This summer he has broken into the State's Under-23 side and has played several Futures League matches.

A stylish opening batsman, Dalton struck a brilliant maiden first grade century (153) Kensington recently against the star-studded Prospect side. 

At age-group representative level, Dalton has starred for South Australia during the Under-17 (2011/12) and Under-19 (2014/15) National Championships.

During the former, he finished second to Redbacks batsman Kelvin Smith on the State's run charts (195 runs at 32.50), then averaged 22.14 at the Under-19 carnival in January 2015.

A player who comes highly recommended, Dalton is returning to the UK in 2016 following a short stint with Hursley Park (Division 1 of the Southern Electric Premier League) in 2014. He struck 299 runs at 27.18 including a highest score of 119 over his short 11-match stint. 

Dalton will spend this summer playing for Middlesex County Cricket League's Division 2 side Wembley.
