Jordan Willoughby is a promising left-handed opening batter playing for New Town in Cricket Tasmania's Premier League 1st Grade.

The British Passport holding batter, who represented Tasmania at age-group level (National Under-17 Championships in 2012/13), returned to New Town last summer, following stints with Huonville Bulls (2015/16), University of Tasmania (2016/17), and New Norfolk (2017/18-18/19). He impressed in the top-order, hitting 344 runs at 17.20 with notable scores against Glenorchy (84) and University (50).

Prior to his move to the Bulls, he had played five seasons in the TCA for a New Town club that included State cricketers Scott Boland, Andrew Fekete, Mark Cosgrove, and Pakistani star Shoaib Malik. He made his TCA first grade debut in 2011/12 aged 16 and has produced a string of notable performances since.

He went on to play alongside the likes of Tim Paine (Australian skipper), Hassan Azad (Leicestershire), Dom Michael (Queensland), Tom Triffit (Tasmania), and Jayde Herrick (Victoria) for the University of Tasmania in 2016/17. Following scores of 51 (v Glenorchy), and 91* (v Kingborough) in his opening two matches, he was unfortunately shot down with an injury and a move to Melbourne for work, cut short his promising summer.

Nevertheless, after two seasons acting as Player/Coach for New Norfolk in the Kookaburra Southern Cricket Association (2017/18-18/19), Willoughby returned to the TCA for New Town in 2019/20, where he has impressed again, not to mention 206 runs at 68.67 in 4 guest outings for New Norfolk in the HCT and KSCA T20 Competitions.

Willoughby has also ventured abroad for 4 of the past 6 seasons, playing for Morecambe (2014 - Northern ECB Premier League), Bovey Tracey (2015 - Devon Premier League), North County (2016 - Leinster Cricket Union), and Billingshurst (2019 - Sussex Cricket League).

The dual Passport holder excelled in his most recent season abroad, finishing second on the Sussex League (Division 2) run charts with 712 league runs at 47.47 with a century and 5 fifties.

Willoughby was set to play for newly promoted Essex League (Premier Division) club, Hadleigh and Thundersley, in 2020. However, COVID put pay to this, and unfortunately, injury is likely to put him out for another UK stint in 2022 (at this stage).
