Ralph is a highly experienced and seasoned campaigner from Krugersdorp, Gauteng. In 2016, Ralph was named Cricket South Africa rural player of the year, presented to him at the Gala Cricket South Africa Awards last year. A marketing degree and a number of solid jobs has held back Ralph in seeking to play cricket in the UK, which he had done once before as an U13 with a Gauteng age group team.
An attacking right-handed middle order Batsman, Ralph is also a quality strike off-spin bowler who once again, has dominated for the Gauteng Rural side in 2016-17, with 414 runs @ 46.00 to go with his 28 wickets @ 17.67.
In summer 2017, Ralph joined Cherry Tree CC for their Ribblesdale Senior League campaign after a late opportunity arose for him. Grabbing his opportunity with both hands, Ralph put in a quality first UK performance, scoring 874 runs @ 36.41 with a best of 120* and collecting 37 wickets @ 25.24 with a best of 5-57.
Seeking a return to the UK in 2018, Ralph is a more mature option who has a wealth of experience at Premier League level and is keen to make the most of a clear schedule by joining a friendly yet ambitious club next summer.
