Tygerberg quick signs for Swinton Moorside - 19/05/16

Aython Adams

SWINTON MOORSIDE have snapped up Tygerberg seamer Aython Adams for their GMCL campaign.

Adams, who's celebrating his 22nd birthday today, is an exciting young prospect playing for Tygerberg Cricket Club in the Western Province Cricket Association.

A former Western Province Under-19B representative, Adams opens Tygerberg’s attack, in a side that features South African star Vernon Philander.

He has been very impressive for his club in recent years. He won Vernon’s WP award in 2012, then followed up with Tygerberg's “best young player” award in 2013.

During the same season, he represented the Western Cape Invitational side that played against the touring England Under-19s.

He remains part of Western Capes Invitational Academy and has aspirations on playing first-class cricket in future.

This summer, Adams took 20 wickets at 22.50 including best figures of 4-52. This followed an outstanding 2014/15 summer for Tygerberg taking 30 wickets at 15 with best figures of 5-29 in WPCA’s 2-Day format.

The talented quick will shortly join Swinton Moorside for the rest of their Greater Manchester Cricket League campaign.
