Westbury’s Jonathon Chapman is glad to be back home playing alongside his Shamrock mates after a seven-month stint playing cricket in England.
The 23-year-old, right-arm quick and middle order batsman played for Yorkshire club Whitby in the North Yorkshire-South Durham League.
“We’ve had a few players play there before – Richard Howe played there last year and Wes Ripper and Sean Stevenson before that so we had a bit of a link there which is what got me over there,” Chapman said. “The competition was not too dissimilar to the NTCA. “I went OK – I didn’t do spectacularly but I didn’t do too badly either but I had a great time, met some great people and had a great experience which was good. “It was good to go over and see how they play the game and learn new things and I hope to get back to the UK at some stage. “My form has been pretty rusty since I got back but we had a good win over Ulverstone last week and I got away with a few and it was good to contribute 67 with the bat.”
