James Day

CAMBERLEY have re-signed Sydney Grade all-rounder James Day for their 2016 Surrey Championship campaign.


Day (30) is quite simply, the perfect overseas professional who bats top order, bowls seam-up, is a qualified teacher and accredited coach.

In 2015 Day played for West-Surrey based club Camberley after securing work locally at Bearwood College. He scored 523 runs at 32.69 as well as picking up 18 wickets at 29.17.

Day's exploits in grade and representative cricket in Australia have proven him an accomplished cricketer, and in 2012/13 he helped UNSW finish Minor Premiers and also runners-up in the T20 competition.

During this season he was runner-up in both Sydney Grade Cricket’s “Champion Player” and University of New South Wales's “Player of the Year” awards. His highlights included 118* in the 1st Grade Semi-Final and 5-26 including a hatrick.

In 2013/14, he continued to star in the Sydney Grade competition with 477 runs at 53 in first-grade alongside 11 wickets at 28.90 and was Assistant club coach as well as skippering UNSW in several games.

Day has also been heavily involved with club coaching and has acted as head coach for the UNSW Green Shield, who finished runners-up and quarter-finalists over the past two years.

Day will now return to Camberley at Upper Verran Road in the Surrey Championship next summer.
