Warriors name Emerging Squad for first round of games
NW selectors have named an 18-strong Emerging Warriors panel ahead of this week’s upcoming games against the Ireland under-19 side at Eglinton on Tuesday followed by a match against the Emerging Knights at Ardmore on Thursday.
The squad features six players who have been involved with the senior side this summer- Nathan McGuire, Graham Kennedy, Ryan Macbeth, Varun Chopra, Kyle Magee and Raymond Curry.
The Warriors had hoped to include Jared Wilson and Conor Olphert although both have been ruled out through injury, while Ross Dougherty and Aaron Gillespie are unavailable for next week.
David Barr and Ryan Hunter get a chance to show that they could be a part of Gary Wilson’s future plans, while Tom Harpur, Tommy Orr, Scott Macbeth and Khyat Bhavsar have earned their call-ups after impressive domestic starts this season.
The Head Coach is very keen to monitor the progress of some of his fringe players during what will be a very busy month of cricket for the squad.
The Emerging Warrior squad in full is-
Tuesday 29th June – Emerging Warriors v Ireland U19s, T20, Eglinton, 12pm
Thursday 1st July – Emerging Warriors v Emerging Knights, 45-over, Ardmore, 11:45am
