George Worker's "attacking style of batting fits well at the top of the order," according to Scotland head coach Pete Steindl

New Zealander George Worker will be Scotland’s overseas player for this year’s Clydesdale Bank 40.

The 22-year-old all-rounder deputised for the injured Luke Butterworth in three CB40 games last season, two of which were wins over Northamptonshire and Warwickshire at the Grange.

The former New Zealand Under-19 international was then playing for Stewarts Melville Royal High CC but this year will represent another Edinburgh club: Watsonian CC, whom he will be coach and professional for.

Watsonian president Ross Brooks said: "It is fantastic news to be able announce that George is joining Watsonians for the summer along with representing the Saltires and I'm sure he'll have a successful summer playing club and county cricket.”

Scotland head coach Pete Steindl said: “I’m looking forward to seeing George back in a Saltires shirt for our 2012 Clydesdale Bank 40 campaign.

“His attacking style of batting fits well at the top of the order, while his left-arm spin will also prove a handy asset. He will be warmly welcomed back into the dressing room after his positive impact last season.”
