Perth born and bred, Marcus returns home to play with the Scorchers after moving to Melbourne in 2011. He has been playing in the Victorian Premier League for Northcote, where he captains the first grade side, bats at three and opens the bowling!
Big things were predicted of Marcus when he represented Australia at the 2008 ICC Under 19 World Cup in Malaysia. Soon after he received his first State contract and spent two seasons on the Warriors list, playing three first class and two domestic one-day matches.
Marcus now gets another crack at the big time, called up to the Scorchers as a replacement for the injured Mitch Marsh, and the confident 23-year old will be doing all that he can to make the most of the opportunity under his Scarborough premiership team mate Justin Langer.
