A new signing with outstanding credentials.

Azam Hussain - Under offer 2017
A very experienced slow left arm spinner, who has played 95 FC career matches.
Azam (30), has gathered 297 wickets in this time at a very credible average under 27. He plays in the Port Qasim Authority team, and has International honours at U19 and A team levels.
Coupled to his bowling abilities, Azam has a batting average of 16 and a best of 77 in red ball cricket, which presents clubs with a very useful and competent bowling all rounder.
Prior experience in the North Staffs league, and would need to undertake the Level 2 coaching course for his 2017 intent for league cricket.
Asif is looking for his first time engagement in the UK and comes highly recommended by his domestic skipper, Zohaib Khan.
He is a slow left armer, despite Cricinfo, stating him to be a left arm seamer!
Zohaib who has been outstanding as a league professional advises 'that he is a very good cricketer and would provide great value'.
Asif plays for the FATA FC side and is a lower middle order bat. FATA is a new FC side, hence, Asif (29) is seen to be a latecomer to the higher levels of Pakistan domestic cricket. His 2nd game of the 2016/17 winter, saw him with a career best of 5/102, and then eclipse this in his 2nd innings effort with 6/102 versus KRL, which prove Zohaib's comments are completely factual. Three games this winter, have seen him tally 15 wickets at 20.60 and 117 runs at 39, with his maiden FC 50 banked.
In 11 FC match career, he has taken 27 wickets at 31.51 and 210 runs at 16.15
Would require Level 2 as part of his employment.

His further International experience, includes, a handful of sub pro games in the Central Lancashire League (2015). He also toured Bangladesh, played the 2014 Champions League tournament.
Angelo would need to undertake the Level 2 coaching course, and is really a top class professional option.
Potentially unavailable for the 2017 UK season, due to possible International committments.
Saeed Anwar Junior - signed 2017
What superlatives can be applied to a cricketer who has a highly credible league pro career.
A top order bat and left arm spinner. Saeed has captained his FC side, and several of his clubs.
In a career spanning 16 years, Saeed has seen immense success in the Bolton, Lancashire, Central Lancashire leagues, as well as many sub pro stints across the North.

This paved a returned to Lancashire League and Church for 2011 and 2012. He recorded stats of 1180 and 978 runs, coupled with 91 and 85 wickets.
Another U-turn back to Bolton happened in 2013 with Bradshaw for 2 years. His exploits saw him gain 1183 and 793 runs, with 67 and 77 victims per season.
Kearsley became his next employer in 2015. An excellent season, saw him captain the side. He lead the way with 1089 runs and 70 wickets.
A former Pakistan U19 star, who also played the 2015 ICC U19 World Cup Final.
Kamran is a proper FC all rounder, who bats in the middle order and bowls slow left arm spin and is a real golden nugget in the making.
Toured England in 2013, for a tri-nation series including England and Bangladesh. His best performance was 103* versus England U19 at Grace Road, under Ben Duckett's captaincy. In the Final, he smashed 61* (32 balls) and bowled Duckett as Pakistan took the title.

Kamran would need to undertake the UKCC 2 course as part of his employment, but is a player of substance for any level of cricket.
Despite being a latecomer to Pakistan FC cricket, Bilal's abilities were swiftly acknowledged despite playing under 20 First Class games.
He made his ODI debut in 2015, touring Zimbabwe, and then played an ODI versus England on their UAE trip. Thereafter, he was called for an illegal bowling action, which was fully cleared by the ICC methodology a short time after.
This did not dent his confidence, as he played all 5 Pakistan A matches versus England Lions and followed up with a successul T20 domestic tournament, earlier this 2016 summer.
Bilal is another genuine all rounder, who has a FC century as well as a T20 best of 114.
An off spinner who bowls with excellent control, and was good enough to take 5/25 on ODI debut. Very keen to play in the UK in 2017, where he will require the UKCC 2 as part of his employment.
A young left arm tweaker, who plays for Port Qasim, under the watchful eye of coach and former Pak skipper, Rashid Latif.
Sohaib is 17 years old and into his 4th FC season. In this time, he has taken 34 career wickets at a very respectable average of 34.05.
He is seeking the chance to develop and learn with the backing of his coach to the UK in 2017. Would provide a cost effective option to a club looking for a genuine bowler who turns the ball away from the bat. As part of his engagement, the UKCC 2 would be required also.
Another who offers genuine all round abilities with bat and ball. Asif represents Federal Areas (FATA) in Pakistan domestic cricket.
This winter, he has scored over 300 runs at 65, with a career best 225. This was scored against the National Bank side, that contained 2 International bowlers, and lasted 2 minutes shy of 10 hours batting at 5.
With the ball, only 8 wickets to date, bowling on seamer friendly wickets, however, this will change as the season progresses.
Played 24 FC games in his career, as well as 38 List A and T20 games. Has a best of 4/17 and 3/31 in this format/
Looking for his inaugural engagement to the UK and wuld require UKCC2 as part of his contract.
