The Lions

Llandudno Cricket Club are delighted to announce the signing of Luke Kenworthy as their overseas guest player for the 2019 season.

The Lions have moved quickly to bring in a fresh face after the departure of Keegan Armstrong to Fleetwood Cricket Club.

Kenworthy, who will be 27 when he arrives in North Wales, is an English born top order batsman and keeper who has spent the last 8 years playing Premier cricket in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

Luke travelled to New Zealand after completing his schooling and after attending the Bracewell Cricket Academy in 2010/11, decided to stay on in New Zealand and study a Bachelor in Sport & Recreation. 

Before moving to New Zealand, Kenworthy played club cricket in Yorkshire for Meltham Cricket Club in the Huddersfield Drakes league. Breaking into the 1st team as a 15 year old, Luke played 3 seasons before jetting across the world to New Zealand. After 1 season elsewhere, he joined Taradale Cricket Club as a 19 year old and has now played over 150 Premier games for the club. The Englishman has captained Taradale Premiers for 6 of the last 7 seasons, playing alongside current Central District and New Zealand international players.

Over the last few years, due to his strong performances at club level, Kenworthy has broken into the Hawkes Bay Cricket Association Representative side, playing on 10 occasions.

As a wicket-keeper, Kenworthy has consistently finished at the top of the catching and stumping charts. With the bat, the Yorkshireman has scored 5 centuries and 13 half centuries batting in various positions at the top of the order. Kenworthy is a full qualified coach and keen to do as much coaching as he can whilst with Llandudno.
