EXMOUTH have signed early order batsman Rory Thomas to bolster their line-up for the 2020 season.
Thomas joined Sidmouth from Bradninch for the 2019 season looking to maintain the form that earned him a place in the Devon Lions development squad.
Although Thomas played in 16 1st XI games for Sidmouth last season, he did not make quite the impression he was hoping for.
A total of 13 Premier Division games produced a modest 150 runs at an averge of around 11 and just one half-century.
Thomas scored more runs in four 2nd XI games, where he totted-up 269 at an average in the high 60s with a best of 183 against Exeter.
Andy Buzza, the Exmouth captain believes he knows what Thomas is capable of from his time as a team-mate at Bradnnich and is glad to have him on board.
"Rory is a young, enthusiastic player with a desire to improve, which fits the bill of what I want at Exmouth”, said Buzza.
“Rory is a destructive opening batsman, who plays with freedom and has the capability of changing the game is a short period of time.
“I have explained to him he can't fail, simply learn. I think it's a great move for him and a great signing for us.”
