West Hallam White Rose is pleased to confirm the signing of UK-based South African batting all-rounder Cameron Mackay for their 2023 Derbyshire League campaign.
Prior to his move to England in 2019, the UK Ancestry holder was ranked the top all-rounder 3-years running for Gonubie Super Eagles. He also played in the T20 finals for top South African schools.
Since his relocation to the UK, he has played in Bedfordshire (Biggleswade Cricket Club, and Dunstable Cricket Club), and Hertfordshire (Stevenage Cricket Club) around his work commitments.
In his opening year (2019), he was awarded Bigglewade’s best batter for his 276 runs at 34.50 – a tally that included his maiden hundred (102*) for the club.
After the truncated 2020 “COVID” season, he enjoyed a prolific 2021 summer, hitting 1,069 runs (at 38.18) for the club, alongside 29 wickets at 28.59 with his handy medium pace.
On Saturdays, he was the 6th leading run-scorer in Division 3 of the Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Premier League (356 runs at 29.67).
On Sundays, he topped the Bedfordshire County Cricket League (Division 1) run charts with 537 runs at 59.67, all with a strike rate of 130.67.
His success for Biggleswade has generated interest from the County, playing fixtures for Bedfordshire CCC’s 2nd XI.
Last summer, he moved to the Hertfordshire League to play for Stevenage Cricket Club. Whilst he perhaps under-performed (by his own high standards), only hitting 318 runs at 19.88, he did pick up 21 wickets at 20.33 in Division 2A of the Hertfordshire League.
He also played in the Bedfordshire County Cricket League (Premier Division) for Dunstable hitting 323 runs at 26.92, and also featured for the County’s 2nd XI, averaging 20.3.
Now Mackay is set for a new challenge having signed with West Hallam White Rose for their 2023 Derbyshire County Cricket League campaign.
