Meyrick, who's due to celebrate his 21st birthday this weekend, is a fine spin bowling prospect whose progressed through the Canterbury age-groups and was recently selected for the Canterbury A side.

An off-spinner and capable lower-order batsman, Meyrick has enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent years.

Courtesy of his exploits for Mid Canterbury at both age-group and senior level in the national Hawke Cup competition, he was awarded a scholarship to attend Lincoln University in Christchurch.

He subsequently joined Premier club side Marist Harewood and has since played with success, in the Canterbury Metro Cricket Association (41 wickets at 28.46 up until the end of the 2013/14 season).

Meyrick has been Canterbury’s front-line spinner in both their National Under-18 (14 wickets at 24.35) and Under-19 (14 wickets at 26.28) tournaments, which ultimately have culminated with Canterbury Under-20s and A selection.

Last summer, he spent a full season playing for Marist Harewood and courtesy of his 27 wickets at 28.89 and best bowling figures of 6-48, won the John Cowens Award for the most Premier club wickets as an Under-20s bowler.

Meyrick is now actively pushing towards first-class honours for the Canterbury Wizards and, in a view to reaching his goal, has decided to venture abroad in 2015 to play for Wisbech Town in Cambs and Hunts Premier League.
