Nidderdale League run machine signs for Follifoot - 12/03/15

Damien LawrenceFOLLIFOOT have signed chart-topping Australian batsman Damien Lawrence for their 2015 season.

Lawrence (21) is an imposing left-hand batsman who topped the Theakston Nidderdale League run charts last season amassing 1,032 runs at 73.71 – a tally that included 5 league hundreds, 2 fifties and a highest score of 155 not out.

Playing in the top tier of the amateur Yorkshire league, the young Victorian also took 23 wickets at 25.17 with his slow left-arm spin in what was a brilliant maiden season abroad.

His summer in England followed three stand-out seasons in the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association for club side Seaford.

In the MPCA top flight (Bendigo Bank District 1sts), Lawrence has racked up 1,565 runs at 34.02 alongside 57 wickets at 23.37 (30 wickets at 23.07 with best bowling figures of 7-52 in 2013/14).

Courtesy of his success, he has also represented the Association during Melbourne Country Week (2013) and previously the South East Country Sharks in the Victorian Under-18 State Championships (2010 and 2011).

Lawrence has recently signed with Follifoot and is hoping to replicate his success in the Airedale and Wharfedale Senior Cricket League this summer.
