Hepburn Heading Back To New Road With Dragons In Strong Position

Alex Hepburn has played the last game of his current spell with Willetton Dragons – and the Worcestershire all-rounder has played his part in putting them on course for the end of season play-offs.

Hepburn brought his winter Down Under to an end on a winning note with the two wicket success over Melville.

He will be flying back to New Road next week to prepare for the County's pre-season trip to Abu Dhabi.

Hepburn, who made two Royal London One-Day Cup appearances at the end of last season, scored 185 runs at an average of 23.13 for the Dragons with a highest score of 57.

He also picked up 11 wickets at 27.18 runs apiece and had overall figures of 85.3-8-299-11.

Hepburn, who scored four hundreds for Worcestershire Seconds in 2015, will leave with the Dragons lying in fourth spot in the 16-team Western Australia Cricket Association first grade table.

They have won seven of their 13 games with the top six going through to the play-offs.

Other players to turn out for Willetton this season have included 45-year-old spinner Bradd Hogg (seven times) – he helped Perth Scorchers reach the semi-finals of the Big Bash – and Yorkshire paceman Jack Brooks (four times).
