Anthony Quinn (24) is a 6’1” seamer, with the ability to swing the ball both ways at a consistent pace, who caught the eye of former Auckland Aces Coach Tony Sail during his school years. He has since played for Cornwall Cricket Club, widely regarded as one of the strongest club across the country.

His talent was first noticed at school where he, like his brother (Matt Quinn – for Aces, now Essex quick), was plucked from social grades and placed in the schools 2nd XI, very quickly moving into the 1st XI after some strong performances. Following a prolific final year at school, which included being the highest wicket-taker at the Marist Cricket Carnival, he was awarded “bowler of the year” and subsequently earned Auckland Central and Auckland age-group honours.

Unfortunately, despite a strong 2014/15 season in Cornwall’s Premier Reserves, serious family health issues hampered his progress. His focus has been with family, so he has only played socially for the past few years. Thankfully, his home life has improved, paving way to a return to competitive cricket this summer. He has played predominantly in Cornwall's second and third teams in recent years.

Holder of a British Passport, the promising quick has moved to the Netherlands and will be based in Haarlem for the next 12 months. He is seeking an opportunity play in close proximity and is a player we'd strongly recommend, especially after his two seasons in the Sussex League for Barns Green (2017-18). Over the past two summers, the kiwi has excelled taking 48 wickets at 10.63 and 40 wickets at 13.38 in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
