Alex Pyecroft is an outstanding player/coach and seam-bowling all-rounder from Tasmania, Australia. A tall Right-arm Fast/Medium seamer, Alex is also a very capable Right-handed Middle Order Batsman. A junior star for Launceston Cricket Club, he represented the Tasmanian U17 & U19 sides from 2008 to 2012, switching to North Hobart Cricket Club ahead of the 2011-12 season in his final year of age group cricket. He went on to become a fully contracted player with the Tasmanian Tigers.

His debut summer in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League 1st Grade competition was outstanding, bagging 31 wickets @ 22.19 with a best of 4-22. Within 12 months, Alex was featuring for the Tasmanian Tigers 2nd XI in the Cricket Australia Futures League and would eventually earn a full contract with his home state. Alex made his first-class debut for Tasmania in the 2018–19 Sheffield Shield season, going on to make 8 red-ball appearances bagging a very credible 22 wickets with a best of 5-28 against QLD in his second game.

Still just 30, Alex is a deep thinker and student of the game with a good cricket brain. Alex has used his experience in the professional game to transition to coaching whilst still playing, taking the lead as the Tasmanian Tigers & Hobart Hurricanes Female Senior and Pathway Coach, whilst still representing North Hobart CC in the CTAS Premier League.

Alex has one previous season of experience in the UK, a 2016 summer with Harborne CC in the Birmingham & District League. He was excellent, scoring 605 runs @ 35.59 with a best of 105* (77) and bagging himself an exceptional 63 wickets @ 13.76 with a best of 6-44.

Seeking a return to the UK in 2023, Alex will be an excellent signing for any UK club seeking a genuine seam-bowling all-rounder that is an outstanding coach, the equivalent of an ECB Level 4 no less. Alex also holds a UK Ancestry Visa.
