Armitage Bridge has signed promising dual Passport holding batsman, Bevan Coveley, for their 2020 Drakes Huddersfield League campaign.
A talented youngster
Bevan Coveley is an exciting dual Passport holding batsman who recently completed 3-years at the prestigious Wynberg Boys High School, the former home to the great Jacques Kallis.
Originally from Zimbabwe, the youngster moved to Cape Town and went on to represent Wynberg in 70 first-team matches. Alongside his studies in South Africa, he returned to Zimbabwe to represent his Country at age-group level.
Over the past two seasons, Coveley scored 217 runs at 36.2 (2018) and 265 runs at 26.5 (2019). During this period, he was the School’s second-leading run-scorer and culminated with being awarded colours for cricket.
The British Passport holder has also played a few games in the Western Province Cricket Association for Cape Town Cricket Club, but due to his school commitments, opportunities were limited. However, now finished his schooling, he is looking to play every match for Cape Town in the New Year before embarking on his maiden UK stint in 2020.
Coveley signs with the Bridge
The exciting batsman, who is also a dynamic fielder and handy off-spinner, has recently signed with Drakes Huddersfield League club Armitage Bridge, where he hopes to impress.
He is also eager to get fully involved with coaching to continue the work he’s undertaken recently for coaching company Sporting Chance in South Africa.
