Charlie Hemphrey

Charlie Hemphrey, the top-order batsman, born in Doncaster and now resident in Australia, joined Glamorgan in 2019 on a two-year contract.

Hemphrey had a solid first season at Sophia Gardens before being recalled to Queensland for the 2019/20 Southern Hemisphere summer. He scored over 500 runs in the County Championship at an average of above 30, and also scored his first Glamorgan List A half-century at Lord's with a stand-out 87.

Having made his first-class debut for Queensland during 2014/15, he has enjoyed a decent run in the Sheffield Shield in the past two seasons, including a stellar performance in the match against Western Australia at The Gabba in Brisbane in 2017/18 where he made 171 runs in the game, and won the Man-of-the-Match Award as the visitors were humbled by 211 runs. He also amassed over 400 first-class runs for Queensland during 2018/19.

A far cry indeed from his early days, growing up in Folkestone and playing 2nd XI cricket for Kent as an off-spinning all-rounder. However, Charlie failed to secure a contract with the English county, and despite also playing 2nd XI  cricket for Derbyshire and Essex, it was a similar story and led him to quitting his job as a construction site manager and in September 2013 moving to Brisbane where he had earlier spent three winters playing grade cricket.

He duly secured a contract with Queensland and in his first full season of State cricket he posted his maiden first-class hundred.  Four years on, he has another three first-class hundreds to his name and had become a mainstay in the Queensland batting line-up, which boasts Glamorgan’s Usman Khawaja and Joe Burns, as well as Test batsmen Matt Renshaw and Marnus Labuschagne.
