Kingston Hawthorn is delighted to announce the signing of Wallasey, Durham 2nd XI, and Eastern Knight’s run machine Jamie Crawley for their 2022/23 Victorian Premier Cricket season.

Crawley is an exciting top-order batter from the Wirral, in Lancashire, currently playing for Wallasey CC (Liverpool League), and Durham 2nd XI (County 2nd XI Championship).

The Scottish native has hit his straps in recent years and is now pushing for full County honours. In 2021, Crawley racked up 1,020 in all competitions for Wallasey, averaging 45.52 including a match-winning century (108) in the Ray Digman Trophy (T20 Competition).

In the same season, Crawley represented the Eastern Knights in Scotland’s 50-over Regional Competition. He broke all sorts of records throughout the summer, including the highest individual score in the competition when blasting 206 from only 144 balls against Caledonian Highlanders. Unsurprisingly, Crawley ended the tournament as the leading run-scorer and the Scottish selectors’ interest.

This summer, Crawley is eager to break into the County (Durham), and National (Scotland) fold. Thereafter, he is set to return to Australia for another season’s grade cricket, having enjoyed a productive stint in Perth (Western Australia Cricket Association) for Claremont Nedlands in 2018/19 (464 runs at 24.42).

The run machine will make his way to Melbourne in October to join Victorian Premier League powerhouse Kingston Hawthorn, and it’s fair to say, Crawley can’t wait to join the Hawk’s Nest.
