Hi there,
Greetings from South Australia.
Can you please pass this email invitation on to anyone within your cricket club who you think might be interested in playing cricket in Australia during our 2017/2018 summer.  

We are currently looking for at least 2 players so this is a great opportunity for a single player or a couple of talented cricketers to travel together to Australia for a working holiday this summer.

Attached are a few pics of the Ashbourne Oval and the towns of Port Elliot and Victor Harbor where the accommodation for overseas players is organised.

The Ashbourne Cricket Club (located 1 hour south of Adelaide, South Australia) is looking to recruit A grade players (preferably top 6 batsmen or medium/fast bowlers) to join the club for the upcoming 2017/18 season commencing October 2017 and running through to March 2018.  

This is a great opportunity for a cricketer or a couple of young cricketers to travel to Australia for the summer.

Ashbourne Cricket Club fields three senior teams (A, B and C grade) in the Alexandra & Eastern Hills Cricket association (the strongest competition outside of the Adelaide region).   The club boasts a well maintained turf pitch and one of the most picturesque ovals in the region.   Ashbourne is a small rural country town located only 15-20 minutes away from the southern beaches of Goolwa, Port Elliot and Victor Harbour, the main tourist region in South Australia.

The Ashbourne Cricket Club returned to the A grade competition five years ago and we are now looking to improve on the performances of the past couple of seasons and compete in the finals this season.  
While the Ashbourne Cricket Club wouldn’t provide direct remuneration for playing, we would be able to organise paid work, accommodation and transport during the 6 month stay in Australia.  We would expect that potential players would pay and arrange for there own travel and visas to and from Australia.

Players would be expected to attend weekly training sessions and play games on Saturday afternoons.  Outside of this and work commitments there would also be plenty of time to check out the sites of South Australia and enjoy our warm balmy summer weather.  

This will be the sixth year that the Ashbourne CC has recruited players from England to join us for the Australian summer.   All these lads have enjoyed their cricket and their time in Australia and have been a great addition to the club.  This has encouraged the club to continue to offer this opportunity each season.

If you would like to register your interest in joining the club or have any questions or enquiries please contact the club recruitment manager, Andrew Stidston via email
