Alan Samuel Jeffrey (born 18 October 1963 in Derry, Northern Ireland)[1] is a former Irish cricketer. A left-handed batsman and left-arm medium pace bowler,[1] he played eleven times for the Ireland cricket team between 1984 and 1989[2] including one first-class match[3] and three List A matches.[4]

Playing career[edit]

Jeffrey made his debut for Ireland against the MCC in June 1984. He played against the West Indies later that month[2] and made his List A debut the following month against Surrey in the NatWest Trophy.[4] He played against Wales eleven days later, but did not play for Ireland again for almost three years.[2]

He returned to the Irish side for a match against Northamptonshire in June 1987, before playing six times in 1989.[2] This included his only first-class game, against Scotland[3] and his final List A game against Derbyshire.[4] His final game for Ireland was against Wales.[2]


In all matches for Ireland, he scored 91 runs at an average of 22.75 with a top score of 28 against Wales in July 1984. He took 15 wickets at an average of 39.73, with best innings bowling figures of 3/22 against Scotland in July 1989.[2]
