Marrow joins Kain at Dukinfield - 24/11/14

Chris Marrow 2 DUKINFIELD have supplemented their kiwi recruit Marty Kain with the signing of South African Chris Marrow.

Chris Marrow (18) is a schoolboy prodigy who boasts a sparkling junior career to date. The right-hand batsman has starred for Oakhill School, breaking numerous records including most 1st XI centuries (7) and the highest individual score (154*). He has also represented South West Districts through the age-groups, including the past two Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week’s.

Marrow was vice captain for SWD Under-19s during the 2013 Coke Week which saw him top the side’s run aggregate and averages (166 runs at 55.33 including a highest score of 83*) to finish 8th overall respectively. According to Warriors Cub’s (Under-19) coaches Greg Hayes and Andre du Plessis, Marrow was very “unlucky” to miss out on Warriors Cub’s selection after the tournament.

Nevertheless, Marrow is due to vice-captain SWD once again during the upcoming Coke Week in December and, subject to performance, is hoping to make not only the Warriors Cub’s, but also the South African Schools and/or Under-19s.

Marrow will enter his third Coke Week in some form. He has already scored two big centuries for Oakhill 1st XI this summer against City of London Freeman School (152) and Point High School (121). He was the only schoolboy to represent the South West Districts Academy in Port Elizabeth against Eastern Province recently – hitting 41 in the first innings of the 3-day game in his side’s 118. He played for SWD during Academy Week in Oudtshoorn in September, then was part of the Warriors Under-19 camp in Cape Town in October.

Marrow, who is also a handy wicket-keeper, is a driven cricketer, eager to progress in the game. Whilst hopeful of reaching higher honours in the immediate future, he has also recently signed for English club Dukinfield and will play as an overseas amateur (courtesy of his British Passport) for the Tameside club in the Lancashire County League during the 2015 season.
