Edinburgh Accies are pleased to announce that we have secured the services of Daniel Rixon as pro for the 2011 season. Dan Rixon (25, son of former New South Wales, Surrey and New Zealand coach Steve Rixon) is a keeper batsman who plays in the Sydney Grade Competition for Sutherland. Dan has previously represented New South Wales at Under-17 and 19 levels and is involved with the New South Wales Institute of Sport.
In his previous visit to the UK in 2008, Dan played for Surrey County League side Merrow. He dominated league, topping the run-charts hitting 881 runs at 62.93 including three hundreds. Dan is also an experienced coach and holder of a Cricket Australia level 2 badge. We are sure his talent and experience will rub off on both senior and junior members of the club.
