CricX are excited to announce Napier Old Boys Marist’s signing of Derbyshire CCC & England Lions pace bowler, Sam Conners for the 2023/24 campaign.

With a strong, repeatable action, and the capacity for taking wickets early in a spell, Conners looks to have a fine future ahead of him as an opening bowler.

He was awarded his County Cap in 2022 after taking 50 County Championship wickets plus a List A best of Five for 28 against Yorkshire at Chesterfield.

With the bat he produced one of his best performances in 2020, scoring five not out in a last-wicket partnership of eighty with Leus du Plooy in the thrilling win against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.

Recognised by a call-up to the England Lions, and awarded his County Cap at the end of 2022, Conners appears to have a splendid future ahead of him.

We would like to wish Sam and everyone at Napier Old Boys Marist all the best for the upcoming season.
