Our 2023 overseas player Liam O’Connor arrived back in April as a fresh-faced 18-year-old Melburnian but left this morning (Monday) with friends aplenty and experience and development abound.

697 runs for the club, including 477 in the league as he helped the club finish in third place in Division 1 of the SPCL and 37 wickets with his leg-spin (21 in the league) is an impressive return for the hugely likable Casey South Melbourne Cricket Club youngster and his time with the club, both on and off the field, has firmly put him in the same frame of Calmore’s best overseas players as his CSM colleague and captain Michael Wallace from 2010, who he was contacted about coming to England and join us.

We meet up with ‘Twisty’ the night before he headed for Heathrow to speak to him about his time and the video is here.

Thank you Liam for all of your efforts for the club in 2023 and we hope to see you return again in 2025, all being well.
