James Johnston (23) has progressed through the Western Province Academy side to make his debut for Western Province in a warm up game in 2010. Johnston took 3-16 against a strong Hampshire touring team picking up the wickets of Jimmy Adams, James Benning and Sean Ervine.
As well as possessing the skills required to open the bowling, Johnston is a more than handy middle order batsman who has also opened the batting in limited overs cricket for his club side Pinelands in the Western Province Premier League. Johnston is an athletic cricketer which is reflected in his fielding and he seems destined for provincial honours in the not too distant future.
Johnston has spent the past two seasons playing for Southwell in the South Nottinghamshire Premier League. He enjoyed a productive first season in 2011, taking 37 wickets at 18.70 to go with 378 runs, including a best of 120, however, struggled on his return in 2012.
He is again seeking a club in 2013 and has actually relocated and found work in Putney (London), so is ideally looking for a club in London or surrounding Counties. He would be a handy recruit with his new ball bowling and middle-order batting, not to mention UK Ancestry Visa.
