A big Ruts welcome to Tom Collett!

We’re delighted to announce that Tom Collett will be joining us from April as our 2016 overseas player.

Tom hails from Australia where he plays Victorian Premier Cricket for Kingston Hawthorn where, over the past five years and 75 matches, he has taken 78 wickets at 34.58 playing predominantly Premier first grade.

He has also recently gained selection for the Victorian Indigenous side set to play at the National Indigenous Cricket Championships in Alice Springs this month.

As our 1st XI prepare to compete for the first time in Division 1 of the Surrey Championship after last season’s promotion, we are delighted to welcome Tom to the club and wish him well for the season ahead.

Join us in 2016!
