Warriors ready for Lightning test

The North West Warriors have named an unchanged squad for Tuesday’s Interprovincial 50-over cup clash against Leinster Lightning at Bready.

It has been a frustrating summer so far for Ian McGregor’s players but the Head Coach will be keeping his fingers crossed that the weather holds having seen their previous two games in this format wiped out by rain.

The North West side will stick with the same 12 named for last week’s abandoned fixture against the Knights, meaning Conor Olphert won’t be risked as he continues his recovery from injury. Work commitments also deny the hosts access to Brigade batsman Ryan Hunter so it is an opportunity for the current squad to keep their season alive with just one more game to go after Tuesday.

A win for the visitors will all but wrap up another trophy success as they continue to set the standard for all around them.

Play gets under way at Bready CC at 10.15 am and the Warriors squad in full is:

A McBrine (capt)
D Rankin
W Porterfield
W Smale
S Thompson
N McGuire
G Hume
G Kennedy
R Allen
V Chopra
C Young
B Rankin
