Since gaining promotion into the Shropshire Premier League in 2004, we have welcomed overseas players to the Club. All of the players have proved to be a great success in their own right and have provided an added dimension to Qcc.
However, because of the new regulations governing entry to the UK, from the 2009 season the club will only be able to register players who are willing to support themselves. We do not pay professionals so please do not contact us if you are looking for reimbursement of any kind.
Below are details of the overseas players that have represented Quatt over the last eight seasons.
April 2011 - June 2011 Ben Hitchcock
Ben Hitchcock is Qcc's overseas player for the 2011 season he has represented Central Districts through the age groups and Taranaki at District level. Ben is an eighteen year old left handed top order bat from from New Plymouth and continues the club's links with the Central Districts area.
2008 & 2009 - Dean Robinson
Our overseas player for the 2008 season was Kiwi Dean Robinson. Dean is a top order batsman from Stratford, New Zealand who has represented his state, Central Districts at under 19 level.His talent has been recognised at international level when he was selected to represent New Zealand Under 19s for their 2008 tour of England. He was selected again this winter and will return to the Club as an amateur in 2009.
July 2007 - September 2007 Nick Phelps
In July 2007 Kiwi Nick Phelps made a welcome return to the Club and proved to be a major morale boost for the team. Nick added strength to the Quatt batting line up, batting at number three as well as keeping wicket. Nick spent the second half of the season with the club before returning to play for Napier Old Boys Marist and hopefully to make his breakthrough into the full Central Districts team.
April 2007 - June 2007 Ramesh Subasinghe
Sri Lankan Ramesh joined the club in 2007 and spent three months with the Club before moving to Devon to play for Axminster CC. Ramesh is a fast bowler who has played first class cricket back home.

2005 & 2006 Jade Yates (Yatzey)
Jade spent his first season with the club in 2005 and formed a solid opening partnership with Gareth Young. Jade originates from Perth in Western Australia where he plays Grade Cricket for South Perth CC. Jade was an integral part of the Club and in 2005 became the first Quatt player to score a century in the Proactive League. Jade returned home to Perth in October 2006 after two seasons with the Club.
2005 Adam Lidiard (Lids)
In 2005 Quatt signed Adam Lidiard, an eighteen year old from Adelaide, Australia. Originally signed to play in the first XI because of his English heritage, Adam spent the season in the second team because of the League changing their interpretation of the UK Passport rule. Adam was a huge success and was the main reason why the 2nds had their best season ever. It is hoped that he will return to the Club in the future as the Club's principle overseas player.
2004 Nick Phelps (Phaz)
In 2004 Quatt welcomed their first overseas player, Nick Phelps to the Club. Nick was let down by the team that had originally invited him over and the green and golds benefited from their actions. Phelps was the main reason why the team managed to avoid relegation in their first season in the Proactive League, scoring valuable runs and taking wickets despite his main discipline being his wicket keeping. Nick is progressing his cricketing career playing for Napier Old Boys Marist back in New Zealand and is on the verge of a first class call up for Central Districts.
