Conrad Greenshields is a South African journeyman who, in 2019/20, took the SDCA (Shoalhaven District Cricket Association) by storm.

Fresh from helping his Dutch club, Voorburg, to the league title, he continued to dominate down-under. It didn’t take long for the veteran all-rounder to make his mark, smashing 123 and taking 6-27 against Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemans at Lighthouse Oval.

Playing for Ulladulla United, the trend continued, ending the summer with 412 runs at 37.75 and 24 wickets at 15.05 to take out the First Grade “Player”, “All-Rounder”, and “Batter” of the Year awards.

Greenshields, who was born in Johannesburg, first started playing cricket at the age of six. He played and excelled as a schoolboy cricketer, representing various age-group sides, before taking a 5-year break from the game. He returned in his early 20s to play for Pinelands Cricket Club in Cape Town.

After a few seasons, he pursued work and family life, resulting in a further 8-years away from the game. However, his love for the game proved too much, and after visiting his parents in Perth, he decided to return again, this time to play for WACA District club, Melville.

After winning the Jan and Barrie McMahon Consistency Trophy for the 2014/15 season, Greenshields decided to give cricket a good crack. He ended up spending one season there before returning two years later for another. The highlight in Perth were his figures of 7-18, which he puts on parr as his career-best 183 scored in a one-day fixture in South Africa.

After that season in WA, the now 35-year-old played in the Netherlands. He took on the Player/Coach/ Captain role for Voorburg, helping his side to the Hoofdklasse title.

Following two seasons in Holland, he spent his summer in Australia, before returning to Europe to take up residence in Lisbon (Portugal). He joined and starred for local club Oeiras, where they took part in the ever-growing T10 European Cricket Series.

Greenshields was the tournament's stand-out performer, finishing as the leading run-scorer (242 runs at 40.33), with a strike rate of 193.60 and top scores of 77 (31) and 79 (33). The Bonsai Cricket sponsored cricketer, was named the “Batter” and “MVP” of the Cricket Series.

The veteran still has plenty of cricket left in him, both as a player, and coach. He is now looking to experience a season plying his trade in England during the 2022 season.

Holder of a UK Ancestry Visa and coaching accreditations, Greenshields represents a fantastic option as a Player/Coach next summer.
