Elliott Forbes

GCC OLYMPIA have signed North Balwyn batsman Elliott Forbes for their 2016 campaign.

Forbes (24) is a player that comes highly recommended by former Victorian Cricket Premiership Ben Torney, who suggests his North Balwyn team-mate would excel in UK league cricket. 

He plays for North Balwyn in Victorian sub-district competition’s Dunstan Shield – the top tier of the Eastern Cricket Association in Melbourne. He has played 140 matches at the point of writing and has churned out three centuries amongst his 2,483 runs at 22.17.

With the rock, he has taken 59 wickets at 18.29, but is often under-utilised despite 10 wickets at 13.30 over 33 overs since the start of the 2014/15 season.

Forbes will make his UK debut in 2016 for Dutch side GCC Olympia.
