Macbeth added to Warriors squad for IP20 weekend

The North West Warriors will host the second round of IP20 fixtures at Bready this weekend and have named a 13-man squad that they hope will build on last weekend’s impressive start in Dublin.


Jared Wilson, who did very well when he got his chance at Pembroke, picked up an injury in training this week and he is forced to sit it out, while Ryan Macbeth comes in to offer options in the seam attack. Elsewhere it’s more of the same for Gary Wilson’s men who know that a similar points return over the weekend would leave them very well placed going into the final round of matches later in the season.



The home side are in action in the early game on each of the three days- starting with the Knights on Friday with the Belfast side buoyed by the return of Paul Stirling. Next up for the Warriors on Saturday is the Munster Reds while Sunday morning is another crunch clash against Leinster Lightning.


All Warriors games start at 11am and capacity for spectators is limited to a maximum of 150 for each game and although there will be no advance tickets, track and trace will be in operation and the regular pre-entry checks will remain in place.


Warriors squad in full is-

Andy McBrine, William Porterfield, Shane Getkate, Stephen Doheny, Ross Allen, Kyle Magee, Varun Chopra, Nathan McGuire, Graham Kennedy, William McClintock, Graham Hume, Craig Young, Ryan Macbeth.

The fixture schedule is as follows-

Friday 25 June

11am- NW Warriors v Northern Knights

4pm- Leinster Lightning v Munster Reds

Saturday 26 June

11am- NW Warriors v Munster Reds

4pm- Northern Knights v Leinster Lightning
