Foxton - Overseas Players

Liam Lofts (Australia) 2017 Season


Daniel Brown (Australia, UK Qualified) 2017 Season

Six months living overseas to play a season of cricket for Foxton CC was an amazing experience on and off the field. The Foxton cricket community gave me the opportunity to live overseas, playing a competitive level of cricket with some great players which became great mates and to experience working overseas for Munro's. Living in the nice country village in Meldreth gave me easy access to Cambridge and London with access to trains 5mins from home.
Foxton CC was more of a community than just a team. Everyone supported each other and they definitely made the overseas players feel at home. Playing cricket with a great bunch of blokes led to a successful season.
Having work in Cambridge for Munro's gave me the opportunity to live life comfortably while living there. This also gave opportunities to do a bit of travel through Europe mid week.
Six months with Foxton CC turned out to be an amazing all round experience.
Best Wishes

2010 The Year of JP

 

The English summer of 2010 provided me with the opportunity to represent the Foxton Cricket Club as their overseas player. I can honestly say that the six months I spent with the club were the most enjoyable days of my life. From the moment I arrived on the shores of England, Ed Carpenter (Secretary & Treasurer) & the rest of the team, made me feel extremely welcome.

I have memories from my time with Foxton that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Foxton is ideally positioned for any overseas player a short five minute drive to beautiful Cambridge & a short forty minute train ride to London. The facilities that were provided to me by Foxton allowed me to further enhance and develop my game, in a very enjoyable environment. Matt Gray’s tireless work on the Foxes home track provides the opportunity to play cricket on the best ground in the Cambridge area. The social & off field side of Foxton Cricket club also certainly doesn’t disappoint. A very proud & encouraging village always made me feel welcome and apart of the big Foxton family. The outstanding local pub (The white horse) was a consent during the summer & the majority of the side spent endless nights their enjoying each other’s company, and celebrating memorable victories.

I can say with no hesitation that any overseas player could not find a better club in all of England to represent. Both Matt Gray, Ed Carpenter & the rest of Foxton treated me like one of them and for that I am eternally grateful. You will challenge yourself every Saturday against some of the best local & international cricketers in the Cambridge region & then by night you will be swept away by the local social fun & festivities.

Wishing the Foxes all the best in the coming years,

John Procajlo

I've had two very enjoyable and successful seasons while playing at Foxton CC. During my two seasons, the club made sure that I was well looked after both on and off the field. They have got a very good support system for overseas players who are interested in coming to the UK to gain some experience and exposure in order to improve their game. The standard of cricket is good, the lads play their cricket very hard to maintain the high standards set by club, but also strike the balance of having a good time off the pitch as well (especially a night out in Cambridge, pleasant memories ;-)). The senior and executive members of the club (epecially guys like Matt Gray and Ed Carpenter) are great people because they go the extra mile to make sure that everyone is treated fairly and kept happy. I'm sure if anyone is lucky enough to be the overseas player at Foxton CC this season and in future seasons, they will have a terrific experience and it would only impact positively on their cricket as well their all-round development.
Thanks again Foxton CC.
Best wishes,
JB
