Banfield will be returning to Australia

First published in Sport

Wormelow’s overseas player Jamie Banfield said he will be returning home to Australia at the end of the season.

Banfield joined at the beginning of last season and scored the most runs in a single season by a Wormelow player.

He said: “I’m quite enjoying the conditions - it’s a lot different to back home.

Banfield did not return to Australia last winter deciding to stay in Herefordshire.

He said he hopes to do as well as possible for Wormelow both with bat and ball.

“Hopefully we can get promoted, we’re in an ok position at this stage but we need to get some form and performances together.”

Banfield came here when Wormelow found his profile on an agent’s website and as well as playing for the club, he coaches some of the youth teams.

He said: “Part of my deal was to help coach the juniors and I was coaching the under 11’s.”

First team captain Ben Owens said: “Jamie’s good, and he fits in really well.

“He’s a serious cricketer, a very talented cricketer.

“He was phenomenal last season in breaking the runs record and save for a few rained off games this year he would surpass that this year.”
