New City’s English import Raj Dohal is looking to use his stint in CAW to catapult his name before metropolitan grade clubs.

Dohal represented county outfit Essex’s development side, playing with or alongside former internationals Darren Gough and Danish Kaneria.

“I would like to attract interest from a Sydney grade club, so it’s a really big season for me,” he said.

The 28-year-old made 11 against Belvoir, and 10 not out against Lavington.

Aaron Gillespie played for Ireland in the under 19 World Cup, and was the highest scorer of the international connection over the opening round with 35.

“I was really happy with my timing as a lot of the guys got caught at cover and mid-wicket,” he said.

Albury’s Sole brothers – Chris and Tom – are considered among Scotland’s finest rising talent.

Tom plays for county club Northamptonshire’s Second XI as a spin bowling all-rounder, while paceman Chris represented his country at under 19 level.
