Former Redback McDonald signs for Chorley - 22/11/14

Brenton McDonald CHORLEY have snapped up former Redbacks leg-spinning all-rounder Brenton McDonald for the 2015 season.

McDonald (30), the younger brother of former Australian all-rounder, now Leicestershire head coach Andrew, has been a star performer in Premier club cricket and has featured for the South Australian Redbacks and Melbourne Renegades.

In 2012/13, courtesy of his exploits in the Victorian Premier Competition, McDonald was awarded the Jack Ryder Medal, culminating with a Redbacks call-up.

McDonald has scored 3208 runs at 31.76 and taken 231 wickets at 23.92 across 150 grade matches in both Melbourne and Adelaide.

The leg-spin bowling all-rounder has also excelled abroad, playing six seasons in England and Ireland. Last summer, he was the second leading wicket taker in the East Anglian Premier League with 56 poles at 15.46 whilst also averaging 28 with the bat.

Chorley will be hoping their new Aussie recruit will do the business once again abroad in the Northern Premier Cricket League in 2015.
