Glen Batticciotto is, quite simply, a run-scoring machine who has excelled in both the UK and Australia for two decades. The former Australian Under-19 and Queensland State batsman has racked up over 15,000 runs and taken nearly 400 wickets in club cricket.

Son of a Sicilian father and English mother, Batticciotto has used his British Passport to play 11 seasons in the UK and has featured at County 2nd XI level for Lancashire, Kent, and Essex.

He boasts incredible stats – only averaging less than 50 on two occasions – his first season with Maldon (764 runs at 40.21) and final season with Saffron Maldon (885 runs at 49.17, to include an unbeaten 200*).

With the ball, his medium-pace has proved very useful, to include 38 wickets at 18.32 (2012) and 31 wickets at 19.29 (2013) during his two-season stint with Saffron Walden in the East Anglian Premier League.

Back in Australia, Batticciotto has starred in Queensland’s Grade Competition for Sandgate-Redcliffe for over a decade. His 2007/08 season (741 runs at 67.38 in all cricket) won him the Peter Burge Medal and was responsible for a Queensland Bulls contract and spot in the QAS team. The left-handed batsman struck a half-century on debut for the QAS, then, in November 2009, hit his maiden first-class hundred (101) against Tasmania.

In his 75 matches for Sandgate-Redcliffe, the run machine racked up 3,127 runs at 39.58 alongside 63 wickets at 21.40. He averaged 50 plus in three seasons, namely 682 runs at 68.20 (2007/08), 321 runs at 53.50 (2009/10), and 613 runs at 51.08 (2015/16). Statistically, his best season with the ball for the club was his final one in 2015/16, taking 17 wickets at 17.24.

In recent years, he has left Grade cricket to play locally for Caboolture Sports Cricket Club in the Sunshine Coast Cricket Association – the side he also skippers. Unsurprisingly, he continues to excel – 774 runs at 48.38 and 14 wickets at 20.71 (2016/17), 1,075 runs at 53.75 with 5 centuries (2018/19), and 678 runs at 45.20 with another 3 centuries (2019/20).

After a few years’ hiatus, the batting all-rounder embarked on another UK stint in 2019 and enjoyed further success for Oxton in the Cheshire County Cricket League (649 runs at 49.92).

He was set to return again last summer before COVID struck, and was again UK bound in 2021, before deciding not to travel due to pandemic concerns.
