Batsman Marco Wyngard has left Victoria Cricket Club for Rondebosch Cricket Club ahead of the 2022-23 Western Province Cricket Association season.

Wyngard played for Victoria Cricket Club’s first XI for 10-plus years.

‘Not an easy decision’

“Victoria Cricket Club means so much to me. The club will always have a special place in my heart. This has not been an easy decision to make, but the timing of it is right,” Wyngard told Club Cricket SA.

“The opportunity to play at Rondebosch Cricket Club is big for me as well. They are making good strides and I look forward to being a part of that.”

What Rondebosch Cricket Club said

Rondebosch Cricket Club player-coach Sean Hendrieck added: “We know this was not a straightforward decision for him to make and we welcome him from Victoria Cricket Club with respect to them.

“Marco can add a lot of value to Rondebosch Cricket Club, on and off the field, and we are very excited to have him with us.”

Rondebosch Cricket Club finished in second position in the 2021-22 WPCA premier league.

Their 2022-23 premier league campaign, according to the WPCA’s first draft of fixtures, will start against Green Point Cricket Club on 22 October.

Last month, Rondebosch Cricket Club signed batsman Schaughn van Greunen from Bellville Cricket Club. Fast bowler Eddie Visser has also joined Rondebosch Cricket Club, while all-rounder Wesley Bedja has left for Green Point Cricket Club.

Batsman Lenert van Wyk has been named Rondebosch Cricket Club captain.
