Adam McDermott

NASSINGTON have signed highly decorated Australian Indigenous all-rounder Adam McDermott for season '16. 

McDermott (23) is a Queensland Aboriginal cricketer who plays his cricket for Wynnum Manly Sea Eagles in Queensland’s Premier Grade Competition.

He has scored over 1,400 runs at 25 for the club and this summer (2015/16) has played across the grades, featuring predominantly in second grade where he has 324 runs at 36.

He returned to his home club in 2014/15, following a stint with rival Queensland club South Brisbane (2013/14) and season in Melbourne for Victorian Premier Cricket club Camberwell Magpies (2012/13).

It was during the latter where McDermott shot to prominence, courtesy of a brilliant first grade century for the Magpies against a star-studded St Kilda. With his side reeling at 36-7, McDermott, who came in at number 8, struck an incredible undefeated ton. He scored 102 of Magpies 167, in response to St Kilda’s 407/5 declared.

He was subsequently awarded an Indigenous scholarship and attended the Australian Institute of Sport in 2013. Since then, he has represented both the Queensland and Victoria Imparja Cup sides and featured in several Australian Indigenous sides.

During his maiden stint in the UK playing for Lincolnshire club Barton Town back in 2012, the Australian all-rounder struck 506 runs at 46 and took 27 wickets at 18.85 with his leg-spin.

He will now return to the UK in 2016 for Nassington in the Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire League's Tucker Gardner Division 1.
