Chris McCarthy is a talented seam-bowling all-rounder who originates from South Africa. McCarthy was brought up in Port Elizabeth, where he was a member of the famous TUKS Academy and also represented Port Elizabeth CC in the Eastern Province Premier League. McCarthy has the added benefit of holding a UK Ancestry Visa.

The all-rounder is a front-line quick who enjoys bowling with the new ball, he is very much a hit the deck bowler who is capable of nipping the ball both ways. McCarthy is also a very dangerous middle-order batter that can take the game away from the opposition in a matter of overs. The South African also prides himself on his standards in the field and his training work ethic, he is also a keen coach with a lot of experience coaching juniors.

Due to work commitments, the all-rounder took 2-years away from the game, before deciding to travel to the UK to work/play in 2019. McCarthy took up the opportunity to play for Hurst CC in the Thames Valley Cricket League and enjoyed a handy season racking up 326 runs at 40.75 alongside 21 wickets at 24.52.

Following his relocation to Manchester, McCarthy played the 2021 season for Cheshire County League club Timperley, again with decent success hitting 301 runs at 21.50 alongside 18 wickets at 30.22.

The talented Manchester-based South African is seeking another opportunity next summer and will no doubt be a handy signing for any club in 2022.
