Cricket Biography:

A pace bowling all rounder Francois Haasbroek made an immediate impact in the early stages of his 1st class career. His bowling reaped 27 wickets in just 10 1st class games at an average of just 19 and with the bat he  has two half centuries and an average of 32, however a move from Griqualand to North West didn’t work out as Francois fell victim to the quota system and struggled to get an opportunity, however His first season in the UK could not have gone any better his all round performances of 640 runs and 75 wickets at the miserly average of just 14.25 allied to his impressive attitude and work ethic played a major part in Lowerhouse cruising to a League title victory and ensured a new contract for 2012. It may have seemed a hard act to follow but  the club went one better and did the league and cup double with Francois again returning excellent figures and pivotal to the teams success, this made the decision to engage him for a 3rd season in 2013 a straightforward one to make and the club certainly didn’t regret it as Francois churned out 850 runs at an average pushing 40 and also took 72 wickets at the brilliant average of just 16 each a phenomenal effort. Francois is currently starring in Australian Club cricket, representing Buckley Ridges in the DDCA (Melbourne) but is returning to the UK on a SPORTS VISA and will be a wonderful player for a club able to take him on this basis
