Alex Breckin to spend winter in Australia playing for Burleigh Bullsharks

24 Jul 2017

Bury Cricket Club and The Burleigh Bullsharks are excited to announce that Alex Breckin will spend the winter In Australia playing under one of our previous captains Simon Belston. Alex has just graduated from University of Liverpool after completing his Business Management Degree  and at the age of 22 is ready to embark on an overseas season of cricket down under!

Brecko, as he is more affectionately known, is a strong left arm bowler and left handed middle order batsman that will add great variation and depth to the club. He has knocked up 3357 runs at an average of 30.24 as well as taking 212 wickets at an average of 17.57 for his home club Bury CC. Brecko has representative honours under his belt after being selected to represent Lancashire in the U/15 and U/17 divisions also.

Both clubs are excited by this venture which hopefully lead to a long term collaboration.
