Stone SP have swooped to sign a talented young seamer who put them to the sword last summer.
Pace bowler Jacob Degg has switched North Staffs and South Cheshire League Premier Division clubs after opting to leave Checkley.
And his new club Stone SP are fully aware of his ability after Degg produced a match-winning display against them back in August.
Degg scooped 5-30 to dismiss Stone SP for 112 as they attempted to chase down Checkley’s 190-9.
That haul was part of 29 wickets Degg picked up for Checkley last season.
His cricket education has been exclusively undertaken at Four Trees and he’s progressed from the junior set-up to the top of the senior ranks.
Degg has also proved to be no slouch with the bat either and chalked up his first senior century with 108 for Checkley’s second string against Sandbach in 2018.
He also reached three figures twice last summer.
Degg’s arrival at Lichfield Road comes weeks after Stone SP spinner Jacob Ward opted to move in the opposite direction.
The duo will potential line up against their former clubs on Saturday, June 13.
In 2019, Stone SP finished in fourth place, with Checkley nestling in sixth when the curtain came down on the summer’s action.
Meanwhile, NSSCL Division One club Hem Heath have continued their signing spree with the acquisition of two more players.
Danny Sanders moves to Trentham Lakes from Wedgwood, while Saj Ali joins from Woore.
Hem Heath have been looking to bolster their playing resources over the winter as they attempt to bounce back to the top flight at the first attempt.
However, they have also required reinforcements after opting to restore their fourth team in to the league set-up.
The fourths will take their place in Division Eight when the season commences on Saturday, April 18.
