Dylan Blignaut-1

WALSHAW have signed South African all-rounder Dylan Blignaut following their promotion into the GMCL top tier.

Blignaut (21) dominated sub-district cricket in Australia last summer playing for Brighton Districts, in the Senior Division of the Victorian Turf Cricket Association in Melbourne.

He topped the division run charts (593 runs at 74.13) alongside 21 wickets at 21. He scored four centuries (157*, 114*, 103, 102*) from only 12 knocks and finished third on the VTCA run charts across all grades.

Blignaut’s move to Australia followed two successful seasons in England (Vauxhall Mallards 2014; Shobrooke Park 2015) and a glittering junior career in South Africa’s Eastern Province. 

Blignaut returned to Northern shores in 2015 to play in the B Division of the Devon Cricket League. Playing for Shobrooke Park, he scored 387 runs and took 31 wickets in the league.

He is now due to return to the UK in 2017 to play for Walshaw who ended their 2016 season with promotion into the Premier Division of the Greater Manchester Cricket League.
