Warriors name first T20 festival squad
The North West Warriors have named their 13-man squad for the first of this season’s T20 festival set to start at Comber on Friday.
William Porterfield isn’t in the panel this time as he has coaching commitments with Gloucestershire in the T20 Blast.
His place will be taken by Raymond Curry in the only change to the squad that travelled to Cork recently and inflicted an only defeat of the season so far on the Munster Reds.
Curry has been bang in form at club level already this year- he smashed an unbeaten 150 for Bonds Glen against Strabane earlier this month in a bizarre White Horse T20 cup match. He certainly plays the free-flowing cricket that the Warriors favour and his inclusion will be great experience for the youngster.
Elsewhere, everything stays the same- Craig Young the only obvious absentee as he continues his recovery from that hand surgery.
The Warriors are first up on Friday as they take on the Northern Knights at 11am and the same again on Saturday when Leinster Lightning provide the opposition.
It’s another early start on Sunday as Andy McBrine’s team taken on the Reds in their third and final outing of a busy weekend.
Details of streaming will be carried on our social media platforms in due course.
