Liam ODea-2

SKELMANTHORPE have re-signed Aussie all-rounder Liam O'Dea for their 2016 Drakes Huddersfield campaign.

O’Dea (26) is a hard-hitting top order batsman and off-spin bowler hailing from the Southern Eyre South Cricket Club in the Port Lincoln Cricket Association, South Australia.

His exploits have seen him become a regular inclusion in Eyre Peninsula representative sides, with subsequent success resulting in selection in the 2015/16 South Australian Outbacks squad.

Last season was one of his most successful to date, amassing 829 runs and claiming 23 wickets across all formats. This included a staggering 381 runs at 76 (including a top score of 111*) as he guided his side to victory in the Twenty20 competition.

O’Dea is a natural leader, having captained Southern Eyre South Cricket Club, Port Lincoln Cricket Association and Eyre Peninsula representative teams throughout his career to date.

The talented Aussie spent his 2016 season in the Drakes Huddersfield League (Premiership), striking 512 league runs at 25.60. He will return to the club again next summer.
