Glendermott have moved quickly to replace their original choice of professional with the signing of South African international Gihahn Cloete.

The 30 year-old is vastly experienced having played over 100 first-class matches as well as representing hiss country in two T20 internationals.

A top-order left-handed wicket-keeper batsman, Cloete has scored ten first-class centuries.

He has also previous UK experience as an overseas player and is sure to be a strong addition to the Rectory's playing staff.
