Marco Marais has been confirmed by Fox Lodge as their overseas professional for the 2022 season.

The 27 year-old enjoyed two stellar seasons playing for the Foxies in the NW Championship.

He scored 2252 runs in his stint at the Ballymagorry club averaging nearly 75.

Marais also played in the UK with mixed results due to injury.

He holds the record for the fastest triple-hundred in first-class cricket, taking just 191 balls while playing for Border against Easter Province.

He had been due to play for Clontarf last year but was unable to travel due to the pandemic.
