2018 Player/Coach - Jurie Snyman




Returning to the club for a third season in 2018 is 24 year old South African Jurie Snyman (pictured above, and below).  Jurie's cricinfo bio' shows his experience in both First Class and List A games with Easterns.  With four hundreds and eight half-centuries to his name - three coming in one month in 2016, including 144 against Namibia - Jurie's pedigree as a top-order batter in South African domestic cricket is without question.  His 2017-18 domestic season saw him come into a rich vein of form, and included 136 (120 balls) in an Easterns' win over North West.  He is also a useful bowler, bowling either right-arm medium-pace seam, or off-breaks. 




Though 2016 saw Jurie's first visit to the club, he already had experience of the game here in the UK having spent 2015 in the Derybshire Premier League with Denby CC where he scored 1,178 runs at an average of 51, and took 28 wickets at under 24 a-piece.  And his first season with the club saw this level of performance continue, Jurie scoring over 1,000 runs at over 80, and taking 29 wickets at 16.3.  2018 saw Jurie and the club play Premier Division cricket after promotion in 2017, Jurie - despite a wet season that saw seven of the eighteen scheduled league matches not completed - again performing strongly with bat and ball: 769 runs at an average of 43 and 23 wickets at 21.7 being another impressive return, with the highlight perhaps his hundred in the Scottish Cup win over Eastern Premiership side Glenrothes. 


Jurie, a qualified coach, will continue to bring much to the club in this area too - with juniors and seniors alike - as well as through his on-field performances with bat and ball.



2018 "Overseas Amateur" - Coenraad Nel


Coenraad Nel, known as Coenie, (pictured) comes to Poloc for the first time in 2018, and is a batting all-rounder.  In fact his coming to Shawholm will be his first overseas playing role.  Coenie plays his domestic cricket at South West Districts where he is Captain of the Academy side, and where the club's former coaching professional Garry Hampson is Cricket Manager.  Prior to joining the SWD Academy, Coenie played Under 19 cricket with Boland.  Coenie's domestic inter-provincial record with Boland can be seen on his cricinfo bio' page.




Coenie will, along with Jurie and our resident club coaches, play an important role in assisting with the club's juniors.
