Accrington signed young Sri Lankan all rounder Janith Liyanage as professional for the 2018 season.

Janith had a consistent if unspectacular season, hitting 595 runs at 31.3 with two half centuries and taking 39 wickets at 15.2 with a best of 5-35 in the win over Great Harwood.

The 22 year old who plays First-class cricket for Ragama Cricket Club is a top order right-hand batsman and bowls right-arm fast-medium.

Kongala Liyanage Janith Vimukthi was the club's second Sri Lankan professional following in the footsteps of Roy Silva who helped Accrington win the Lancashire League title in 2008 and 2009.
