NCC are proud to announce the return of Josh Brown and Caelan Maladay to the Yellow and Black in 2023.

Both players need no introduction, having had a big impact on the competition last year.  Since then,  JB has gone scored a huge amount of runs back in QLD and shown his clean striking of the ball to the rest of Australia in the big bash league. Caelan has been no slouch either and has continued to show his class with the ball, taking plenty of wickets opening the bowling for Sydney University First Grade. 

We cant wait to see the these two back in NCC colours.  Welcome back lads ⚫🟡🐯
