In 2016, 21-year-old Jake Weatherald made his debut for the West End Redbacks where he managed to rack up over 3800 runs, including nine centuries in his tenure.

In List A cricket, out of 39 matches, Weatherald scored just shy of 1400 runs, with four centuries to his name.

Now departing the Redback, SACA General Manager, Cricket Tim Nielsen said SACA wished Weatherald and his family all the best.

“Jake has been a big contributor to Redbacks cricket for many years and we thank him for all his efforts,” Nielsen said.

“Jake identified a fresh start as an important part of his career moving forward and SACA are supportive of this new, exciting opportunity in front of him.

“The most important thing for Jake is that he is happy, healthy and playing cricket and we hope this new chapter goes well for him.”

Jake will look for a fresh start as he joins Matthew Wade's Tassie Tigers.
