The man who led Sudbury Cricket Club to their first ever promotion to the East Anglian Premier League is set to return.

South African all-rounder Jandre Coetzee has agreed to come back, subject to final contracts and documentation, to Friars Street for a third spell as their overseas profressional for the 2013 season.

It was music to the ears of club officials after Coetzee scored more than 1,000 runs and took an amazing 159 wickets, including nine in one Two Counties Championship Division One match in 2010, in those two seasons in 2009 and 2010.

Vice-chariman Louis Brooks said: “Jandre made a huge impact at the club in 2009 and 2010, improving many aspects of peoples’ games and was part of the promotion side that made it to the East Anglian Premier League.

“He is a great guy to have around the club, a true Talbot, and I know many people are excited at the prospect of Jandre coming back.”

He added: “He was a hit with the junior section and he had a good season in Lancashire last season so will bring that experience with him.”

The club, who held their AGM this week, have set February 9 as the date for their annual awards dinner where Paul Nixon will be speaking at the Masonic Hall.
