Ardmore is pleased to announce the signing of Australian batting prospect Harry Zimmermann for their 2022 NWCU campaign.

Perth prospect

Zimmermann is a dual Australian/Irish citizen playing in the WACA Grade Competition for Perth Cricket Club in Western Australia.

A talented, young, batting all-rounder, Zimmermann plays for Perth’s 2nd Grade and is currently striving for a 1st Grade call-up in a side that includes the likes of Jonathan Wells (Adelaide Strikers), Josh Nicholas (WA), Liam Guthrie (WA/Brisbane Heat), and Sam Fanning (Aus U19s).

Known as a dedicated, and hard-working cricketer, he spent much of his junior career keeping wicket, before embracing his new role as a top-order batter who bowls medium pace in recent years.

State and Schoolboy star

Zimmermann excelled at junior level in WA, breaking into the prestigious Trinity College 1st XI in 2017, where he continued to star until his graduation in 2019.

The prior summer, he represented WA Under-17s at the Australian National Championships (Oct 2018) and thereafter made his WACA 1st Grade debut for Perth (2019/20).

NT success

Last Australian winter (2021), Zimmermann embarked on a season in Darwin, playing 1st Grade cricket for Palmerston Cricket Club. He enjoyed a purple patch in the T20 competition, hitting 182 runs at 45.5 in his 5 games with a highest score of 81.

Since returning to WA, this summer he has played 14 matches across 2nd Grade and Colts cricket where he has 302runs at 16.78 (the majority in the 2nd Grade).

Set for Irish stint

Having been unable to travel to Northern shores last winter due to a certain pandemic, Zimmermann is now set to embark on a stint this year having signed with Ardmore for their 2022 North West Cricket Union campaign.
