Malcolm Nofal is returning to North County for the 2022 season as their overseas professional.

The 30 year-old South African enjoyed a prolific all-round campaign on his previous stint with the Balrothery club in 2018.

He amassed 1050 runs at an average of 43.75, with three centuries and five fifties. His left-arm spin also claimed 38 wickets, at an average of just 17.34, with two five-wicket hauls.

The left-hander is currently in prolific form for his club Limpopo, recording three half centuries in his last four innings.

"During his first stint at the club, Malcolm also worked extensively with our younger players and was very involved in both juvenile training and umpiring matches," said North County on the club website. 

"He is highly regarded by everyone at the club. We are all incredibly excited for him to return to the club next summer!"
