Aubrey Swanepoel is one of the most experienced professional cricketers currently playing in the South African domestic system with over 300 professional games to his name across all three formats. A attacking right-hander suited to the middle order, Aubrey is also a crafty right-arm spinner that bowls both off & leg spin. He is currently contracted to the Free State Knights in the South African Provincial system and represented the South African U19 side as a youth.
Aubrey made his First Class debut for his native Griqualand West against the North West Province as an impressive 17-year-old in January 2017. Picked as a spinner, he bagged match figures of 3-82 in a big win for the Griquas. His List A debuted followed that same week, also against North West and also resulting in victory. His T20 debut came for the Eagles (now known as the Knights) in 2009 along side current Proteas captain, Dean Elgar and once again, jagging a winning result on debut in a new format.
Aubrey represented South Africa at both academy level, with appearances at home during Bangladesh’s Academy visit in 2009 and a subsequent tour to Bangladesh in 2010 as well as twice being selected to represent South Africa at the Hong Kong Sixes in 2011 and 2017.
Aubrey has had three seasons of experience in the UK, with two stints in the Lancashire League, a 2013 stint with Bacup CC & a 2018 summer with Crompton CC with those two seasons split by a 2017 venture further north to the North Yorkshire South Durham League having signed for Stokesley CC.
A Cricket South Africa Level 2 coach, Aubrey will be a great pick up for any club seeking a genuine spin-bowling all-rounder for next summer with a wealth of experience and keen to get involved off the field.
