Damian Burns


“Damian visited St Helena from London in October 2014, and joined the Jamestown Barracudas, where he donned the keeping gloves for his first season. He was blown away by the hospitality of the entire cricket community and quickly fell in love again with the game he had started playing as a school boy growing up in Kenya. Damian played two seasons for the Barras before returning to the UK in 2016. In 2018 he made the decision (entirely based on cricket of course) to return to the Island permanently. He re-joined Jamestown (now re-branded “the Heat”) and was elected treasurer of the SHCA Damian is dedicated to moving the game forward and especially boosting its international profile through promoting its unique selling points.
