Kirkburton is pleased to announce the signing of Kiwi Fletcher Coutts, who will join returning Pro, Roscoe Thattil, for their 2020 Drakes Huddersfield League campaign.

Coutts abroad

The British Passport holding batting all-rounder, who plays for Onerahi Centrals in the Northland Premier Men’s Competition in New Zealand, has enjoyed two recent stints abroad.

In 2018, he produced the goods for Phoenix in the top tier of the Leinster Cricket Union in Dublin (642 runs at 35.67 and 24 wickets at 26.25) before an excellent season with Downham Town in the Norfolk Alliance (827 runs at 37.59 and 31 wickets at 21.13) last summer.

The Pro returns

Fletcher will join the prolific Roscoe Thattil who is set to return to Kirkburton for a second stint in 2020.

The Sri Lankan star impressed last summer, racking up 1,183runs at 49.29 and took 21 wickets at 32.33 for good measure.

The Club is delighted with the dual-signing and hopes to build on their 12th placed position in the Premiership last summer.

Roscoe was in sublime form for Kirkburton last summer.
