Bourton Vale Cricket Club are delighted to announce the signing of all-rounder Oli Lockey.
Oli joins from Chedworth where he has been captain for the last few seasons and been their standout player for many more.
"I'm very excited to be joining the Vale ahead of the 2022 season. It’s a move that’s been on my radar for a couple of years and seems to have come at the right time for myself and the club.
There’s a real buzz around the club and the way it’s moving forward currently and I’m looking forward to getting started."
BVCC Chairman Kev Langley added;
"We are delighted to announce that Oli Lockey will be joining us this year. We have built our relationship with Oli for several years whilst being fully respectful of his loyalty to Chedworth Cricket Club.
He has played the odd friendly for us and has taken part in our Cricket Festival for some years.
As a left handed bat and gun fielder, we expect him to be an ideal fit into our Club as he aspires to play for the most progressive club in the area."
First Team Captain Charlie Garratt continued;
"We’ve been keen to get Oli involved for a little while now so its great to have him as part of the 1st XI squad.
He showed us what he could do when he played for us in cricket week last year, making a couple of decent impressions with the bat.
He’s a very talented all-round cricketer and his attitude is spot on so I’m looking forward to seeing him go well this season."
The date for the annual AGM has been confirmed.
It will take place via Zoom on Thursday 17th February at 7pm.
