Tom is an outstanding prospect currently playing for Toombul DCC in Brisbane’s Premier Cricket competition. A Right-handed, capable Middle/Order Batsman who puts a high price on his wicket without being prolific, Tom’s main discipline is his Right-arm Fast seam bowling that is genuinely quick. A product of St Joseph’s Nudgee College, Tom was a regular selection for Queensland from U15 through to U19 level.

Having been a member of the Toombul District Cricket Club since he was graded as a 13 year old, Tom has progressed through the grades at the powerhouse Brisbane club and made his First Grade debut at 17 in summer 2021-22 and we can’t see him looking back as he has become the spearhead of the club that has produced countless QLD players and double-digit Australian representatives.

Seeking his first season abroad in 2023, Tom will be an excellent pick up for any club seeking a capable Middle Order Batsman and genuinely quick seam bowler for next summer. Tom is also a Cricket Australia Level One coach.
