We are delighted to announce our overseas signings for the 2019 season.
Solo Nqweni will join us as our Overseas Professional.
Solo is a South African seam bowling Allrounder who bats in the middle order.
Solo is currently captain of Eastern Province in the CSA 3-Day Provincial Cup and comes highly recommended.
Speaking to Solo earlier he had this to say ahead of joining up with us in April:
"I’m definitely excited for the Scottish summer and season ahead as it will be my first time playing as a pro in the UK and I’m just really hungry to make an impact and lasting impression on the club. I’ve heard things about the club and the people of Aberdeenshire from my team mate Lesiba Ngoepe so already in my mind I know it’s a great privilege to be able to play there this upcoming summer."
