Joshua van Heerden is a Top Order Batsman from Port Elizabeth, South Africa. A gifted Right-Hander with a patient and calm demeanour, Josh has long been touted as a potential Proteas player, having appeared for Eastern Province at every step of the player pathway and ultimately the South African U19 red-ball side to round out his youth Cricket. Josh is also a current International for the German National side.

Possessing a calm head at the top of the innings, Josh enjoys leading from the front and is a natural leader amongst his peers. A fluent stroke player, he is able to speed up the innings or hold an end up with solid defence. He is also more than capable of bowling some tidy Right-arm Off Spin to slow down the opposition’s batsmen and has proven to possess somewhat of a golden arm in the past season at Premier League Level.

Josh made his transition to the Professional game at 20, in the SA T20 Africa Challenge at the start of the 2018-19 summer for his native Eastern Province. He has since gone on to make over 50 Provincial appearances across all three formats for EP as well as his new home, Eastern Cape Inyathi.

Josh has one previous season of experience in the UK, a brief 2021 stint with Weybridge CC in Surrey, scoring 470 runs @ 47.00 and chipping in with 9 wickets.

Seeking a return to the UK in 2023, Josh will stay with family in the Gerard’s Cross region and is seeking to find a club locally that can offer strong Premier League Cricket.
