Garstang CC skipper Mark Walling is glad to have Coen Oosthuysen back in the ranks as they head to Netherfield on Saturday.

Oosthuysen played an integral part in last season’s Moore and Smalley Palace Shield Premier Division success.

With Garstang having made the move into the Northern League for 2018, Oosthuysen was unavailable in the early part of the season.

Although his return saw Garstang beaten by Barrow, he picked up four wickets before taking another three in last Saturday’s win against Penrith.

“Coen bowled really well against Barrow in taking 4-20,” Walling said.

“He fitted in really well and he offers us a bit more because he spins the ball really well.

“He offers us another bowling option and we’re happy to have him now.”
