Honeybrook puts in winning performance before Sydney move
CRICKET: Zac Honeybrook has provided a grand final-winning performance with the ball at Iluka Oval for Wanderers, just weeks before jetting to Sydney to link up with the Sydney Cricket Club.
It is a move more than a year in the making for the young all-rounder from the Lower Clarence, but with a job and housing lined-up, Honeybrook is ready to make his mark on the Sydney grade cricket scene.
"I went down there for a couple of trial training sessions and they liked what they saw," Honeybrook said.
"I am keen for it. It opens the door for me to get into cricket in the city.
"I just want to give cricket my best shot and see how far I can take it. I would not mind playing some BBL and domestic Twenty20 games."
Honeybrook saved one of his better performances with the Wanderers side for the grand final when he worked side-by-side with brother Brandon to strangle the Harwood run chase.
Honeybrook took 2-24 from eight overs, including the wicket of the dangerous Darrell Simmons (28), who was the only Harwood batsman to pass into double figures.
Last week Honeybrook was named Player of the Final in the Cleavers Mechanical 30-over Night Cricket grand final win over Coutts Crossing after he took 1 for 7 off 5 overs with the new ball and then scored 19 not out to see his side to victory.
