Thikshila de Silva to return in 2023

We are delighted to announce that we have agreed terms with our current professional Thikshila de Silva to return to GHCC in 2023.

Thikshila has been a key part of the continued development of our young and inexperienced 1stXI side during his time with us, and continues to perform to the highest level.

Thikshila signs for 2023

We are delighted to have him commit to us for another season, as he is one of the most sought after professionals in the North West.

Notwithstanding the rules within which league clubs are bound to operate, many clubs had already made contact with him in an effort to secure his services.

We are delighted he has committed to our project for another year.


De Silva to return in 2020

The Committee of Great Harwood Cricket Club are delighted to announce that we have secured the services of current professional Thikshila ‘Sanka’ De Silva for the 2020 season.

He has already scored 686 runs and taken 34 wickets in all competitions, with just under half of the season to go.

Chairman Stuart Maher remarked:

‘We are delighted to have secured Sanka’s services for next year at such an early stage. It will help us with our ongoing planning and development needs to have him in place for next year and allow us to plan properly throughout the winter.’

‘His attitude has been exceptional since his arrival, and after a slow start has come to terms with the demands of being a league professional in the North West of England.’

‘The example he sets on the field to all players, both seniors and juniors, is testament to what he brings to our club. He is helping push our players to improve their games, and we hope this early announcement will allow Sanka to continue to perform to such a high level for the remainder of this year and the next.

Sanka signs again!
