Rob listened carefully to our criteria and budget for an overseas player and provided us with a choice of appropriate candidates… no unending list of players for us to filter through. We found Rob to be very efficient and professional throughout the recruitment process and having supplied us Rob kept in touch to ensure that both club and player were happy. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Rob again in the future.
I can say that this is the 1st season we have used an agency to secure our overseas player and we are delighted with the service we got from Rob. We are also more than pleased with our overseas player and would recommend any club to contact Rob at World Sports Xchange first when looking to recruit an overseas player. The most pleasing aspect of dealing with Rob is the friendly, nothing is any trouble service he offers, always only a phone call away and more often than not it was Rob contacting us to make sure we were happy. After contacting several agencies for a player for the 2010 season, Rob found us a very special player, for our limited budget. Thankyou Rob and we look forward to working with you for many years to come.
I want to thank you for all your hard work in such a short space of time to get us an overseas player on a tight budget. It was so refreshing to get a phone call from you on the same day rather than waiting 2 weeks for even a basic email response from other agents. Thanks again.
We used World Sports Xchange in the 2009 season and they recruited us a player from Australia. I think I can speak on behalf of the entire club in saying that he was one of the best overseas players we have ever had and were sorry to see him go. Robbie provided a great deal of support before and during the season and did an excellent job in recruiting the right player for us. Our offer wasn’t the best, and we were looking for a specific type of player, not only did Robbie provide us with someone who was well matched for the standard of our league, they were also a great guy to have around and mix in with everyone at our cricket club. All the relevant paperwork and visa applications were completed with the minimum of fuss and on time allowing the player to arrive well on time.
In short I wouldn’t hesitate in using World Sports Xchange and Robbie again, or indeed recommending them for other clubs.
I will be forever grateful for the opportunity World Sports Xchange gave me in my first venture in to playing in the UK. I had been let down in previous season by major agents but my patience was rewarded when I began to deal with Rob. I have been placed in a great club and have been completely satisfied with the service provided by World Sports Xchange.
We decided to use the World Sports Xchange service for the first time to recruit our overseas player for the 2010 season. From our first chat to the final exchange of contracts we found the service that Rob offered to be highly efficient, responsive and professional. Our requirements were very specific, and due to an original player pulling out during the process, slightly longer than we had expected, but eventually we were able to identify the right candidate and throughout the process we maintained in contact with the agent. Rob also played his part in helping the player to settle in to his new surrounds, and has continued to keep in touch during the season to check up on the players progress. We will be looking to use Rob again in future seasons
This year was the first year that Bradenham Cricket Club has used Rob Humphries to source an overseas player. The first attempts were unsuccessful although not due to any way to Rob’s input. Indeed, following the withdrawal of the players availability, this made Rob even more determined to find us the player we needed. He managed this well and we have a player who is currently performing well for us. There were a couple of teething problems early on but Rob maintained his interest and helped smooth these over quickly. We would not hesitate to use him again in future seasons.
We have used World Sports Xchange since its inception in 2008, we have had 6 players in all from WSX and do not hesitate to recommend them
In the 3 years that I have been responsible for locating and negotiating with overseas players and agents I have dealt with numerous agents. Their standard has ranged from appalling to excellent. I can honestly say that Rob Humphries has been the most professional and up front agent I have dealt with. The league we play in the North East Premier League is a very competitive league and I have found that other agents are very happy to recommend players that are not good enough to play within the league to ensure that they place their client. Whereas Rob gave excellent advice about whether he thought a player which he represented would be of the required standard.
I also found Rob extremely efficient in negotiations; it took 7 days from the club informing him that we were interested in one of his players to receiving the signed contract from the player. Rob was always willing to answer queries by emails or phone and always replied swiftly which is not always the case with other agents.
I would therefore not hesitate to recommend Rob Humphries & World Sports Xchange.
For the past two seasons Rob at World Sports Xchange has worked tirelessly to find our club a placement that is suitable for both player and our club. Despite the club being an ECB Premier club with few finances, Rob has continued to encourage players to join us and works very much with the values we have as a club. I would highly recommend his personal, professional and caring service to any club looking for a player, or any player looking for a UK club
We were in a desperate situation about 2 weeks before the start of our season. The contracted player we had signed was refused his visa. Rob and James found us a player, sorted all the paperwork and visa, and Devon only missed the first 2 weeks of our season. He was a fantastic guy, one of the best players I have ever played with or against, took 38 wickets and scored over 1,200 runs. The overall service provided from WSX was fantastic, and I look forward to working with them again in future seasons.
I would highly recommend using WSX for sourcing overseas players. When I first contacted Rob there was not long to go before the season started, and to get the player that we did within the constraints of the package we had, was exceptional. Unlike the other agents I have dealt with previously, Rob was honest and realistic about what we could expect, and that is why we will exclusively be using WSX to source our overseas players in the future. I cannot recommend the service provided by WSX highly enough.
Excellent support again from Rob. It is refreshing to work with an agent who actually cares about both the club and the player!!!
A couple of hours after emailing Rob, he had called me, listened to what we wanted as a player/deal, and recommended a couple of players that were the standard we were looking for. After that, it was smooth running in agreeing the deal, contracts and the player arriving. The player we got was a match winner and a superb clubman. Any questions are answered quickly and honestly by Rob or James, Thanks very much to you both.
If you’re a cricketer looking to explore opportunities abroad I would not hesitate to recommend the team at World Sports Xchange.
As a coach and heading up my own academies in Mumbai and Delhi, I have no hesitation in recommending Rob and the guys at World Sports Xchange.
I’ll definitely be recommending WSX to anyone who wants to play in the UK in the future! Very happy with the services and very much appreciate you helping me out.
We used WSX for the first time in 2013 and I have to say that we are extremely pleased. Rob was a pleasure to deal with; he quickly matched us up with a very influential young player on our limited budget. Rob guided both club and player through the Sports Visa process and everything sailed through within a matter of weeks.
As a club we need honesty and openness from agent and player to enable a trusting relationship to form. With you this has been easy. As a result I am always confident you will recommend the right sort of player for our club. You haven’t failed yet!
Having used Rob Humphries organisation for some years. I have always found him to be professional and aware of the requirements of the club. He also follows up after placement to se how the player performed.
As per usual, we were late to market for an overseas player. Rob was more than helpful in suggesting names and when a player who looked beyond our package was highlighted, he worked very hard to secure this player within our budget. I would recommend World Sports Xchange to any club. Thanks Rob
Very happy with service received. A quick turnaround once player and club confirmed interest.
We have used Rob at WSX for a few seasons now and I would without doubt recommend you talk to Rob with regards your overseas requirements. Rob has tremendous knowledge of not just a players ability but also his personality and temperament which is just as important. A Club of our size and stature have specific requirements and we can be quite demanding but nothing is too much hassle for Rob who continues to meet those demands.
Having been let down by two overseas players for various logistical reasons we were in a difficult position with only days to go before the start of the 2014 season. Rob was not only able to magic a South African U19 player with a UK passport out of thin air within 24 hours, he was also able to get him into the country and playing for us within seven days. Brad turned out to be a superb member of the Club,not only as the best batsman we’ve ever had at the Club, but also helping out with junior coaching and having a superb professional attitude. Top job Rob, thank you.
Poloc Cricket Club was delighted with the service provided by Rob Humphries and his colleagues at WSX, from first contact, through player ID, negotiations and logistical planning, to post-placement communication and follow-up. A really good all-round service, and – as importantly – one that we are aware was as appreciated by the players as the club.
To anybody thinking of buying this theme – buy it! The theme itself is amazing, and on top of that, the support is outstanding! I wanted some features put in, and the theme developer was more than willing to help me out!
