Nick joined us in 2012 and quickly established himself as one of the competition’s top players. He played a vital role during the 2013/14 season captaining the club to a drought breaking premiership. A big game player who often gets the prized wickets of the opposition’s best batsman. Benno made his first-class debut for South Australia in March 2015 and finished with 8 matches across two formats for the Redbacks. He has featured in Port Premierships across all 3 formats, claiming best on ground twice.

Nick becomes the 5th player to reach 100 First Grade games in the past 25 years, joining Darryl Monger, Matthew Weeks, Shane Chatto and Adam Dilley.

Well done Benno on a fantastic achievement, we wish you all the best in your 100th First Grade game for the club
