Knights Selection v Leinster Lightning - Inter-Provincial Championship at Stormont

NCU Representative Directorate

UPDATE: Phil Eaglestone is unfit to play for the Northern Knights v Leinster Lightning and has been replaced by Nathan Smith of Instonians.

The Northern Knights team to play Leinster Lighting in the 3 day match commencing this Tuesday (17th May) shows two changes from the team who performed so well last week in Dublin.

Chris Dougherty who was unfit to play last week in Dublin returns and Gary Kidd, unavailable last week returns to play.  Dougherty is not sufficiently recovered to keep wicket but will open the batting, replacing James McCollum who is back at university and unavailable.  This means that Jamie Magowan, who had a good debut match in Dublin, is retained.

With Kidd returning the unlucky player to lose his place is Lee Nelson, the Waringstown captain.  With Smith (77), Getkate (64no) and Thompson (61) having scored well in the previous matches with Leinster this season and Dougherty unable to keep wicket, room had to be made for Kidd's return and Nelson is the unfortunate one to miss out.

James Shannon continues to captain the side and will be hoping for another good display from the Knights.   No clubs were asked to release their professional players.
