Wesley is an attacking top order Batsman & Wicket-Keeper from Johannesburg in South Africa. A product of Jeppe High School for Boys where he played 1st XI Cricket for the final two years of his schooling. While playing at the Michaelmas Oppenheimer Cricket Week in 2014, Welsey, along with fellow WSX client, Ryan Doubell, were approached by a touring team from Westlake Boys High School, Auckland, New Zealand to do a post matric year at the school. Accepting the offer, Wesley was the opening batsmen for the 1st XI in the 2015 season NZ Schools season. One of the schools key performers, he was a huge part of the team finishing the year off as the best team in Auckland, as well as 2nd best School team in New Zealand. Westlake won the T20, 50 over and two day titles in Auckland, only to come runners up at the national tournament.
Upon returning to South Africa, Wesley re-joined his old club, Jeppe Quandom CC. Having had a taste of playing cricket abroad, Wesley sought his first season in the UK in 2017 and was brought in by Hawarden Park CC in the ECB North Wales Premier League to dominate at the top of the order. Wesley obliged with 799 runs @ 42.05 inclusive of a stunning 168* as HPCC chased down Mochdre’s 269-6 in 41 overs.
A dashing Top order batsman, capable of keeping wicket and a real club man, Wesley will be a great pick up for a club seeking to bring in some top order talent for summer 2018 in the form of a blazing young South African looking to step up to a higher standard for next summer.
