Hadleigh sign Perth star Dain Moreton - 20/03/15

Dain MoretonHADLEIGH have signed promising Australian all-rounder Dain Moreton for their Two Counties campaign.

Moreton (21) is a serious batting prospect who plays first grade cricket for the prestigious Perth Cricket Club in the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) Competition.

An EU Passport holder, courtesy of his dual citizenship (Italy and Australia), Moreton is a top-order batsman who bowls left-arm orthodox spin. He has established himself as an integral member of Perth’s first-grade side, since his debut in 2013/14.

He has since played over 30 first-grade matches, to include the WADCCC Statewide T20 games. In the current season, he is averaging 20.90 and 29.80 in first grade and WACA Colts League matches respectively.

Whilst he is used sparingly with the ball, he considers himself a genuine all-rounder, who has enjoyed success with this skill set in the lower grades and whilst abroad, after being awarded the Adam Gilchrist Scholarship to play for Richmond in the Middlesex League in 2012 (282 runs at 25.64 and 23 wickets at 20.04).

He is hoping to impress on his UK return and push for County 2nd XI and potentially Italian national opportunities in future.
