Curtley Louw11

Wath have signed Boland All-Rounder Curtley Louw as Professional for their 2019 South Yorkshire Cricket League campaign.

Louw (24) is a talented all-rounder who comes highly recommended by former South African quick, now Boland Head Coach, Henry Williams.

An accomplished batsman and brisk medium-pacer, Louw has played 18 domestic matches for Boland across the three formats since his debut in September 2017.

His provincial debut was a long-time coming, as he has been a stand-out performer for both the Boland Academy and Wellington Cricket Club, with whom he helped to the Premier League title and National Club Championships in 2017/18.

He was the Boland Academy “Player of the Year” last summer and, was awarded the same honour for Wellington, courtesy of his run and wicket-taking exploits. Louw also starred for Wellington at National Club Champs and was named in the Team of the Tournament.

To date, Louw has played 6 first-class games and whilst he hasn’t set the 3-day competition alight with the ball, he has impressed with bat in hand scoring 3 half centuries from the middle-order.

Louw has, though, shown his undoubted skills with the ball in List A cricket, taking 9 wickets at 25.22 at the point of writing.

The talented seam is now looking forward to his maiden UK league stint in 2019 having recently signed with South Yorkshire League's Wath Cricket Club.

Wath's Cricket Manager Matt Hays stated the following about the signing:

“I’m delighted that Curtley has agreed to join us for the upcoming season, not only are we getting a quality player that will help our 1st XI compete but we are also getting an exceptional coach who will help bring through the next generation of senior players at Wath”.
