Warriors name squad for Knights double-header

Selectors have named a 13-man squad for the North West Warriors’ two games against the Northern Knights at Stormont next week as Boyd Rankin’s charges bid to battle back from a difficult start to the Interprovincial summer.

Both squads will be missing players to International duty- Graham Hume and Craig Young involved in Ireland’s T20 series with Pakistan while Conor Olphert is out of the North West line-up due to injury.

That of course means chances for others and Gavin Roulston, Harry Zimmermann and Charlie Downey are the trio who come in as replacements.

Game 1 will be a T20 on Wednesday afternoon at 3.30 as the visitors go in search of their first win of the new campaign.

The code switches to 50 overs on Thursday as the longer format competition gets under way, ahead of two home games for the Warriors in the same sequence against Leinster Lightning the following week at Bready.



The squad in full is-

Andy McBrine (capt)

Stephen Doheny (wk)

Liam Doherty

Shane Getkate

Gavin Roulston

Charlie Downey

Kian Hilton

Cameron Melly

Ryan Macbeth

Scott Macbeth

Trent McKeegan
