Adam Jones is talented Batsman, originally from Auckland but now based in Otago. A hard-working Right-hander, he also bowls left-arm medium pace but is concentrating on his batting and the move to Otago centred around his desire to push into the State side as a top order batsman.

Born in England but moving to New Zealand when he was young, Adam is a former Auckland U17 and U19 representative. Whilst in Auckland, he played for Howick Pakuranga CC in the Auckland Premier Cricket competitions and eventually Auckland A whom he represented not long after turning 18 and whilst still eligible for the Auckland U19 side. His first appearance for Auckland A saw him bag match figures of 7-73.

Adam relocated to Otago in 2021 and joined Taieri CC. In his first summer with the club, his batting really started to shine, scoring 610 runs @ 55.45 across all formats in 2021-22. He was selected for Otago A before the conclusion of the season.

Adam has had one previous season of Cricket in the UK, a 2019 stint with ECB Sussex Premier League club, Three Bridges CC. A solid stint, for the then 19-year old, produced 479 runs and 49 wickets and saw the club finish 3rd in the league.

Seeking a return to the UK next summer, Adam will be a great pick up for a club seeking a quality Top Order Batsman who is a keen coach and can offer some occasional but useful left-arm medium pace. Adam holds a UK Passport, is British born and would prefer to play in the London/Hertfordshire region.
