Tim is a talented all-rounder currently based in the UK. An aggressive right-handed Top Order batsman and off-spin bowler, Tim has a rounded but constantly developing game. Off the field, Tim works very hard at his game and always takes the opportunity for game time over practice. Tim has been involved with the Border provincial youth squads right through the age groups, from Under 13 through to U19, whereby he was the youngest member of the 2012 Khaya Majola Coke week squad. The same year, he was in the Under 17 National talent and training camp.

Having attended the prestigious Selborne College, Tim went on to play with Old Selbornians CC in the Border Premier League, Tim also has a depth of coaching experience at his former School and has had great success with the youngsters.

Following a first stint in 2015 with Davenham CC, which was hindered by a top hand injury sustained from a return catch, Tim return in 2016 to join Ropley CC in Hampshire and showed that when fully fit, he can deliver with both bat and ball. A stellar season, which included 894 runs @ 68.76 and 22 wickets @ 16.41 saw Tim wanting to return to the UK again in 2017 and join a Premier League team, subsequently joining Seaham Harbour in the North East Premier League first division. His 2017 summer was short-lived with form and issues with arrangements resulting in a return home.

Not content to let a tough year stand in his way, Tim returned again in the 2018 UK summer, re-joining Ropley CC and comfortable surroundings after a bad experience in 2017. Unable to take a trick, a shoulder injury from a dive in the field cut short his season but not before he managed to score 613 runs @ 68.11 and collect 15 wickets @ 16.27 in just 11 games.

Tim joined Old Buckenham CC for a short 2020 season and his impact was immediate, scoring 260 runs @ 52.00 & collecting 9 wickets @ 15.89 in just 5 games. He remained with the Norfolk club for 2021 and in his first full season with the club scored 669 runs @ 39.35 and chimed in with 19 wickets.

Work commitments in the Hampshire region restricted playing time in 2022 to just 14 appearances for the Thames Valley Champions, Gerrards Cross but his 424 runs @ 32.62 was once again a solid return.

Now residing in the UK, Tim is a quality young man and a good cricketer, Tim is bound to be a popular choice for next summer.
