Jonathan Fletcher (26) is British Passport holding (and UK based) South African batsman who, druing the 2016/2017, struck a career-best 155 playing for the Pineapple XI against Ngumbele XI. His innings culminated with selection for the Eastern Cape Districts side.

The left-handed batsman, who can keep wicket and bowl medium pace, relocated to Grahamstown (Eastern Cape) in recent years, following a junior career in Limpopo. He represented the province through the age-groups, namely Under-15s (2007), Under-17s (2008-09) and Under-19s (2010) and was a stand-out for Merensky High School, scoring 6 centuries during his 3-years with the 1st XI.

Since leaving school, he has played for Sidbury CC (the 4th oldest club in South Africa) in his local cricket competition due to work commitments. Playing in the Grahamstown Farmers League, Fletcher has scored well over 1,500 runs averaging a tick under 50 sice the 2014/15 season.

He has also played three seasons abroad - his first back in 2011 for Scottish National League (top flight) club Stoneywood-Dyce, then three stints in Cheshire - two on the bounce for Lymm Oughtrington Park (2016 - 554 runs at 39.57; 2017 - 502 runs at 33.47 and 29 wickets at 12.86), before a move to Warrington in 2018 (723 runs at 40.17 and 22 wickets at 20.27). 

Fletcher is currently wintering in the UK and with his British Passport, is deemed a "local" under Cheshire County League regulations. He is seeking a club within the league, but would consider others, in close proximity.
