Mark Pearse is quite the prospect who made an immediate impression in South African first-class cricket recently (Nov 2022).

On debut for Easterns, in the CSA 4-Day Series against KwaZulu-Natal Inland, the opening batter struck a brilliant century. Chasing 327 to win, Pearse blasted his side to victory hitting 115 from 105 balls against an attack featuring the likes of Keith Dudgeon, Stefan Tait, Tiaan Koekemoer, Malcolm Nofal, and Mark Erlank.

Pearse’s selection was well deserved having represented the Province through the age groups, and excelling for Christian Brothers College Old Boys (CBCOB) in the Easterns Premier League.

He was also impressive abroad last summer (2022) racking up 1,066 runs at 42.64 (alongside 26 wickets at 29.73 with his medium pace) for Pelsall in the South Staffordshire County League (Premier Division).

Unfortunately, despite his eagerness to return to Pelsall it appears he’ll narrowly miss out on the required 5 first-class matches to qualify for an International Sportsperson Visa to return to the UK in 2023.

Therefore, the new South African star is seeking an opportunity in Ireland or the Netherlands next summer. Clearly a player of significant promise who will be a fantastic acquisition for any club next season.
