Cleck’ delighted to capture quality spinner

Amir Hussain joins Cleck’ with everyone’s best wishes and the talented spin bowler completes the Moorenders squad for 2021.

Amir arrives at Moorend after a ‘Covid season’ at Bolton Villas having played for Methley the year before and the young man in his early 20s earns a glowing reference from Cleck’s Captain Mally Nicholson.

“Amir is a good signing for us,” commented Mally. “We were unsure about the availability of an overseas player because of Covid and it makes sense to have Amir on board. He’s a good off spinner and he has always performed well when playing against us.”

Mally is a Cleck’ man through and through and a Skipper who demands loyalty and he believes Amir will be at Moorend for some time to come. “We are hoping Amir will stay at the Club beyond the 2021 season along with the rest of the squad,” he added. “We want to build something as a team and to win silverware over the next few years and we’re not just looking towards the coming season.”

For many years the Club has sought to bring in the ‘right characters’ and players that join Cleck’ for correct reasons, which is emphasised by Mally who said: “I am sure we have brought the right people in to the Club, including Amir. And players who will become involved in what we are looking to bring to Cleck’. And not players who will use us as a stepping stone. We want the right calibre of person who knows what Cleck’ is about and buys in to our ideas.”

Amir is welcomed by everyone at Moorend and a player who we’re sure will make an impact on-the-field and be a part of things off-the-field.

Skipper Mally Nicholson has given a great deal of thought to team building and Amir Hussain is a player he rates highly
