Anthony Manning-Merritt is a tidy off-spin bowler from Christ Church, Barbados. A gritty, lower order left-hander who prides himself on holding up and end with the bat, he puts a high price on his wicket without being prolific. His dominant discipline is by far and away his attacking off-spin bowling, with good turn and flight, he’s been particularly effective in the shorter formats.

Having attended Combermere Secondary School for whom he played in the 1st XI, he plays his club cricket for Wanderers Cricket Club in the Barbados Cricket Association Intermediate division and has represented the club since he was 15, a year in which the club won the 2nd Division title. He is currently the 2nd XI captain.

Anthony captained the club at all age group levels from U13 to U17 and in 2017, captained Wanderers’ U17 team on a tour to Kent, returning home with the most wickets on tour.

Seeking his first season in the UK in 2022, Anthony is looking to join a friendly, ambitious club and benefits from holding a British Passport.
