David Jacobs-Oct-2015

 NORTHOP HALL have signed Easterns all-rounder David Jacobs ahead of their 2016 campaign.

Jacobs (26) made his first-class and list-A debut's for Easterns at the start of the 2013/14 CSA domestic season, taking figures of 2-68 and 3-61 in the 3-day and 1-day formats respectively.

He has opened the bowling for the North West Academy and Potch Dorp and in 2011/12 for the latter he took 31 wickets at 22.23, as well as being nominated for NPL “Bowler of the Tournament”.

The Easterns seamer has also spent the last three seasons in England, and, during his first stint abroad for Mayfield in the East Sussex League, he topped the League wicket charts (64 wickets at 12.64) whilst also scoring 467 runs at 35.92.

Following their promotion to the Sussex County League Jacobs then returned to Mayfield in 2014, taking 34 wickets at 12.82 alongside a further 212 runs at 30.28.

Last summer, playing in the much higher standard of the Derbyshire League, he finished 6th on the league wicket-charts (3rd in Division 1) with 58 wickets at 15.55, including hauls of 5-74, 5-49 and 6-40.

Given his success over the past three summers, the talented South African will now return to the UK to play for Northop Hall in Division 1 of the Liverpool and District Cricket Competition.
