SHENLEY Village Cricket Club has welcomed back West Indian strike bowler Wendell Roberts as their overseas player for the 2009 season.

The 33-year old enjoyed a spell with the Radlett Lane based side in 2007 picking up 47 wickets with best figures of 9-27.

The 6' 7" tall paceman from Trinidad - a net bowler for the West Indies batsmen during the 2007 World Cup - has played for the Windward Islands and St Lucia, the latter of which included an appearance against Trinidad in the knockout competition of the now-infamous Stanford 20/20 Tournament.

Roberts will combine his playing duties with being the club's bowling coach, assisting junior practice sessions and getting involved with the club's schools coaching programme.
