Country XI side that won the National Country Cricket Championship for the 2nd time in it's history. One of the best bowlers the club has had he is ranked 6th for wickets taken & has the 2nd best Bowling Figures in an innings for our EGCA A Grade (behind only Keith Ewen with 8/17). A key member of the 2016-17 premiership side Zane captured 24 wickets @ 5.85 for the season (economy rate 1.85) & with the economy rates that we have compiled comfortably sits atop that list (2.66). If the current EGCA competition format remains the same in the future it's likely that he will remain the last Lake View player to take an A Grade 10 wicket haul for the club. Zane also played first grade pennant cricket in Perth for Fremantle & Willeton.
