Colne have announced the signing of South African Bjorn Fortuin as professional for the 2017 season. Bjorn is a slow left arm all rounder who represents the Lions at franchise level.
His average of just over 37 with the bat, including a highest score of 194, and a shade over 28 with the ball, with best bowling figures of 8-58, outlines the talent that Bjorn posses.
He comes highly recommended from a number of colleagues at the Lions who have no doubt he'll excel in the Lancshire League next season.
The club would like to thank Cric Intro for helping to secure this exciting signing.
