The 32-year-old all-rounder had been due to play for Carlisle as an amateur this year and turned in some eye-catching performances in the replacement T20 tournament.

Before linking-up with the Edenside club Hindmarch, who hails from Keswick, has spent two years coaching at the prestigious Whitgift school in Surrey.

Family circumstances meant he moved back to the county, and when Carlisle skipper Marc  Brown contacted him he was sold on the idea of joining the Cumbria League champions.

He began his career at home town club Keswick, before joining Durham, where he progressed through the ranks.

Although injuries held him back, he went on to play both minor counties cricket for Cumberland, and with the Unicorns as he tried to get back into the first class set up.

There followed a year at Penrith in the Northern Premier League before the move south to coach at the school that has produced England internationals such as Jason Roy.

Mark Davidson, the Carlisle secretary said: “We wish Paul all the very best at Cockermouth for next season though perhaps not when we play our friends from Sandair.

“In all seriousness we wish him well and Cockermouth have made an excellent move in signing one of the best pros around.

“We’ll miss ‘Hindy’ at Edenside as he had such a positive approach both on and off the field and this was clearly evident in the much-shortened 2020 season. Let’s hope we all have  more luck in 2021.”

Cockermouth had won the Cumbria League’s Premier Division title in 2018, surrendering it in 2019 to Carlisle and both are expected to be the main challengers next year.
