Harminder Singh Jugnu
Former India U19 starlet, Harminder Singh, opened the batting and kept wicket throughout his First Class career.
Prior to settling in the West Midland, Harminder played several years as an Overseas Professional in the Worcester and Surrey Leagues.
A powerful batsman and competent off spinner, who will slot into any league environment.
Now free from work duties, he looks to find a full time engagement as a ‘local pro’ for 2014. Harminder played 12 games for Alder in the strong Liverpool Competition and topped the clubs averages with 448 runs @ 40.73 and taking 13 wickets @ 32.
Ali is a genuine all rounder who can open the batting and bowling. He is a current FC player in Pakistan, but has leave to remain under spouse visa regulations.
A former Pakistan U19 player with 14 caps, Ali played a strong part in KRL’s surge to the National Division 2 title in 2011/12 winter, averaging 48 with the bat.
He signed as an 11th hour replacement for Leycett in the North Staffs League and made an immediate impact on debut.
Despite the strong start, weather caused havoc through the season, and he ended up with 559 runs and 36 wickets.
Ali looks to continue this success in 2014.
Faisal Irfan Butt - Player signed 2014
Faisal has been a performing league professional, since settling in the UK, as well as during his near 10 year First Class career.
Faisal had 4 seasons at Leamington in the Birmingham League, prior to that spells at Cleckheaton and Pudsey St. Lawrence in Bradford League.
A seam bowler of brisk pace, Faisal is a genuine all rounder with the bat, as over 2200 FC career runs prove. Faisal immediately settled in at Betley in the North Staffs League and earned an excellent reputation with team mates, club members and opposition alike. His initial season collected 591 runs at 29.55 and 62 wickets at 18.36. This consistent performance lead to Betley offering terms for 2014. ECB 2 qualified.

Rashid has 2 years league pro experience. After taking over 12 months to settle down and find work, he returned to cricket. Firstly at Drumpellier in the Scottish National League and Altofts in the Central Yorks League. His time at Drumpellier saw his play just 5 games all season, due to the horrendous weather that decimated cricket all over the UK. He still averaged 45 with the bat and 21 with the ball. Played half a season at Altofts, scoring a shade over 400 league runs but hardly bowling.
A top order bat and genuine left arm spinner, who has a List A best of 101*. He is 31 years old and possess experience from his cricketing days in Pakistan.
An excellent all round cricket who will do a fine job in any level of cricket.
