Danish powerhouse, Skanderborg, has signed former Zimbabwean international Trevor Garwe, for their 2020 domestic season.

Trevor’s brief

Garwe is a pace-bowling all-rounder who represented the Zimbabwe A side for several years before making his national debut in October 2009. Despite productive returns at domestic level, his ODI outing against Kenya has proved to date, to be a solitary one.

Genuine all-rounder

A bowler with genuine pace, Garwe has taken over 220 wickets at first-class level, averaging a tick under 29 with four 5-wicket hauls.

He has become a consistent performer at domestic level, with the 2009/10 season being his most prolific, taking 33 wickets at 25.69 and also hitting his maiden century (117) amongst 472 runs at 33.71.

He enjoyed another strong 2015/16 summer taking 25 wickets at 21.72 in the Logan Cup, culminating with Zimbabwe A selection against the touring South African A side.

He also picked up 13 wickets at 26.15 including his 5th five-wicket haul in 2018/19, too.

Overseas exploits

Garwe has also enjoyed several UK stints. Following his maiden stint with Cornwall club Newquay back in 2011, he spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons plying his trade with Wellington in the Birmingham League. He excelled in his opening summer taking 28 wickets at 14.39 including best bowling figures of 6-30. He also scored a half-century (62) and averaged 18.25 with the bat, albeit opportunities were limited. His return season wasn’t as prolific but still yielded 29 wickets at 22.03 and 138 runs at 8.12.

He returned for the 2017 season to play for Eglington then Northern Ireland’s North West Cricket Union and impressed, racking up 400 runs at 26.67 alongside 11 wickets at 35.55. In 2018, he ventured North, once again, this time to Scotland, where he played in the Western District Cricket Union (Premier Division) for West of Scotland, taking 20 poles at 22.75, albeit struggled for runs, hitting 177 at 14.75. Garwe headed back to England last summer and enjoyed a productive stint in the Shropshire League for Madeley scoring 390 runs at 22.94 alongside 29 wickets at 24.17.
