The 19-year-old was caught unaware of reaching the first significant milestone of his fledgling career.

“I had no idea, but it’s great to reach that first big milestone and it really means a lot to me, and hopefully there’s a few more runs to come," Spoors said.

“The First Grade competition is a really good competition to be a part of. It’s tough cricket and a lot of good players have hit 1000 runs, so I guess it’s good to be sitting in the same calibre of those players.”

After debuting as a 16-year-old in the 2014-15 season, Spoors has quickly made a name for himself at Wanneroo, solidifying his spot in record time.

The aggressive right-hander has continued the upward trajectory of his career into season 2018-19, notching 225 runs and taking 18 wickets to sit 11th in the competition for wickets taken.

“I’d like to think I have a decent technique, but I like to go for my shots as an opener and then come in and bowl my leggies and take a few wickets here and there. I’m definitely a batsman first and bowler second, but I guess my bowling has developed well over the last few years, so hopefully that can become more of a weapon for me going forward.

“I’ve also worked pretty hard on my fielding, I field at backward point most games and do the best I can there.”

Spoors said Wanneroo has gone from strength to strength over the season.

“We went through a rebuilding stage last year, finding out the way we want to play and how to execute that the best we could," he said.

"We acquired Travis Birt over the off-season and he’s come in and really made an impact for us both performance-wise and as a leader.

“We’ve won the last two games in a row, so hopefully we can keep the momentum going."

With finals most likely off the cards for Spoors and his teammates, the prolific all-rounder is just keen to continue playing his role for the side.

“I was in and out of training with school and exams, but this year has been really good for me. I had a pretty solid pre-season, putting in a lot of hard yards, so hopefully the rewards will start to come towards the back end of the season.”
