Boston Cricket Club have signed South African duo Daniel Sincuba and Fayadh Haffejee ahead of the 2017 Lincs ECB Premier season.

With Australian trio Ryan Croom, Riley Orr and Liam Sparke returning to Georges River CC, the Mayflower men moved to add to their options.

Both new recruits are predominantly batsmen, but both will be able to add to the bowling options.

Sincuba will also take on coaching duties.

Skipper Tom Baxter said: “Dan is a very keen coach and, hopefully, he will move the club forward both on and off the field, from the First XI all the way down to the under 11s.

“Fayadh is a young lad that wants to experience cricket elsewhere.

“They will both be here for the start of the season.”

Boston will also welcome back Ricky Lovelace to the club, after not playing in 2016.

“It’s great to have Lovers back at the club,” Baxter added.

“He’s buzzing for the season and has scored a lot of runs at this level in previous years.

“Hopefully he’ll do that in 2017 and be an integral part of our side.”

Boston will start their season preparations at the ground on Saturday with their Natwest Groundforce Day.

On the pitch, Boston start by taking on Spalding in a friendly on April 15.

The following day, Boston’s Sunday Seconds travel to Woodhall Spa to start their league campaign, a week earlier than the other sides.
