Stability the word for Lurgan as they embark on another season in Section One.

The club have been active at all levels and have a successful women's section who did the double under Hannah Grieve in 2017.

They've worked hard on their youth structures in recent years too and with former Irish international Derek Heasley coaching the side, it all augurs well for the Mid-Ulster side.

Section One will be undoubtedly as competitive as ever and Lurgan will be hoping to launch a promotion challenge.

A club spokesperson told CricketEurope. "We are very much looking forward to the new season and continuing to build on a very positve second half of last season.

"We have brought in Derek Heasley to coach the men's side and bring the structure that we were lacking at the start of last season."

They start their campaign with a home match against near neighbours Laurelvale on April 21st, followed by an away day trip to Queenway to take on Derriaghy the following week.

They begin their cup quest with a first round home tie against Cregagh at Pollock Park, with the reward for the winners another home tie later in May against Premier opposition in the form of Instonians.
