Lourén Steenkamp is an outstanding talent originally from Potchefstroom but now based in Polokwane, South Africa. A capable right-arm off-spinner, Lou is a very gifted Right-handed Top Order batsman that has really started to hit his prime. Lourén is currently contracted to the Limpopo Province in South Africa’s domestic system.

A star for Potch Gim High School, Lou was a regular feature for the North West Province throughout each age group, consistently among the leading run-scorers for his age at the respective Cricket South Africa National U15, U17 & Khaya Majola Coke Week tournaments. He went on to play for the North West Rural side in the 2016-17 CSA Rural League. Study followed at North West University (PUKKE) and made his First Class and List A debuts over the 2017-2019 period alongside a number of Franchise Colts appearances.

Having continued to work hard on his game, Lou is a prime example of perseverance, doing enough in the Gauteng system to attract interest from the Limpopo Impala’s who gave him another crack at the big time ahead of summer 2022-23 as part of their return to the official provincial competitions.

He repaid the faith in spades, pumping out over 1000 runs for the province since his move and looking every bit the professional cricketer. With an uncompromising technique, his performances have been an absolute reflection of the hard work that’s gone into his game and the result is the much improved and matured cricketer he has become.

Seeking a return to the UK for the first time since his UK stint, a 2016 summer with Hopton Mills CC in the Bradford Cricket League, Lourén will be an excellent signing for any club looking for a high class top order Batsman that can roll the arm over next summer.
