Scotland recruit Worker
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.”
