Stoke Green snap up Lincolnshire legend - 06/10/15

Conrad LouthSTOKE GREEN have secured the services of Lincolnshire Minor Counties run machine Conrad Louth.

Louth reloated to Reading in recent months and Stoke Green have swooped to sign the talented batsman for their TVCL campaign in 2016.

The 27-year-old will play his first season outside the Lincolnshire County Board ECB Premier League in more than a decade next season.

Louth is a proven Minor Counties batsman who dominated the Lincolnshire County Board ECB Premier League for a number of clubs including Boston (2004-07), Woodhall Spa (2008-09) and Bourne (2010-15). Louth is the leading run-scorer in the competition’s history.

Over 217 first team matches, he has scored 6,917 runs at 38.01 with 45 fifties and 10 centuries. He has finished amongst the leading run-scorers every season since 2006.

He has enjoyed several prolific seasons, most notable in 2006 (609 runs at 46.85), 2008 (598 runs at 59.80), 2012 (766 runs at 58.92) and 2015 (800 runs at 57.14).

Louth has broken a number of records throughout his career in Lincolnshire, with perhaps the highlight, a brilliant 77-ball 174 for Bourne against his former club Woodhall Spa in the Winkworth Cup (Lincolnshire’s T20 competition).

Louth has also been a stand-out for the Minor County, featuring for Lincolnshire 37 times across the three formats dating back to his debut in 2008.

He has excelled over the past three seasons in the Championship hitting 299 runs at 37.37 (2013), 176 runs at 58.66 (2014) and 242 runs at 26.88 (2015).

In addition, he starred in the Unicorns Knock-Out Trophy in 2014 averaging 64, with a highest score of 94*. Louth was also County trialist back in 2009, playing three 2nd XI matches for Northamptonshire.

The Lincolnshire legend will be keen to make a big impact in the Thames Valley Cricket League for his newly adopted club in 2016.
