Michael Schofield (22) is a British Passport holding kiwi seamer who is highly regarded in Counties Manukau cricket circles at club and senior representative level.

Courtesy of success at Premier club level for clubside Karaka, he has broken into the Counties Manukau Senior Mens side and is constantly pushing for higher honours.

Schofield has been a constant feature near the top of the competition wicket-charts over the past three seasons, with his 2011/12 season being most prolific taking 57 wickets in all formats, including 40 wickets at 15.50 in the Premier competition to win the “Premier Player Points Award” and subsequently being awarded the “Club Cricketer of the Year”.

In 2012/13, he was the Counties Manukau Development "Bowler of the Year" and Karaka "All Rounder of the Year". He was also awarded his club's "Presidents Cup" for best club member and the W.H. Taylor Shield for the leading wicket taker in the 2-day competition.

Schofield is also developing into a strong lower-middle order batsman, averaging mid-teens with the bat over the past two seasons including his maiden Premier fifty. He had previously churned out 901 runs at 90.1 in 2008/09 whilst playing in the Reserve Grade before his promotion to the top flight.

Schofield spent last season playing in Scotland for Western Premier Division side Ayr and is now actively seeking a return to Northern shores once more in 2014.

To compliment his playing skills, he’s also an experienced and practising coach who is an integral part of his clubs coaching team, delivering the “Have a Go” cricket programme in schools, whilst also managing youth sides and overseeing junior trainings.

He is also regarded as a “hands-on” club man who is actively involved with the club’s management committee. Schofield is an enthusiastic, highly driven and dedicated cricketer, both on and off the field, who would be a valued acquisition for any club in 2014.
