Alex Osborne is a bright, talented, young all-rounder from Perth, Australia. A capable right-handed Batsman, Alex is a developing leg-spinner with plenty talent and is looking to spend as much time playing cricket to master his craft as possible. Currently playing for Mount Lawley District Cricket Club in the Western Australia Cricket Association Premier League, he made his first grade debut as a 17 year old. Alex comes highly recommended by Stew Walters (ex-Surrey, Glamorgan Professional)

Having attended the prestigious Scotch College, Alex was a standout in the WA Public Schools Association, bagging 25 wickets @ 14.52 in his final year of school cricket. He’d previously been graded by Subiaco-Floreat Cricket Club as a 14 year old in 2017 but switched to Mount Lawley DCC ahead of the 2019-20 season.

Whilst he has floated between the 1st & 2nd XI’s, Alex has shown, especially in the 2nd XI that he is capable of being a contributor at the top of the order. As with most young leg-spinners, Alex is a work in progress and whilst he hasn’t been a prolific wicket-taker, he has shown he can produce the goods and be a threat at the Premier Cricket level.

Having had a fleeting visit to Guildford CC in the 2019 summer, Alex is now looking to return to the South of England in 2022 and seeks to join a competitive club for next summer that can assist he and his partner with accommodation. Alex holds a UK Ancestry Visa and is in the process of completing his Cricket Australia Level One coaching qualification. A very impressive young man committed to his work and his game, he’ll be a welcome addition to any club seeking a spin-bowling all-rounder.
