Twyford have high hopes for Jake Kubinek after signing him from Redlands Tigers in Brisbane.

The promising right arm fast bowler and hard hitting middle-order batsman could make his debut when they travel to Banbury 2nd in their Cherwell League Division 1 opener.

They also welcome back Zawar and Kamber Hussain, while last year’s captain, Sam Roberts, has stepped down to take over as 2nd team skipper.
