Mark Adair has confirmed he's leaving Holywood in search of Premiership cricket.

The 22 year-old took 39 wickets and scored 531 runs for the SeaPark club this season, but it wasn't enough to pip Lisburn to the promotion slot.

"It's been a tough decision to leave Holywood, but I want to prove that I can play at the highest level as both bowler and batter," said Adair.

"I'm keen to play for Ireland and to give myself the best chance of that I feel I need the challenge of Premiership cricket. Holywood have been great to me and they will always be my hometown club."

There are no shortage of offers for the Ireland Wolves and Northern Knights star, with four clubs vying for his signature at present.

NCU Premier sides North Down, CIYMS, Carrickfergus and CSNI have all been in touch with the former Warwickshire player.

"I'm flattered that there has been so much interest from these top clubs. It's going to be difficult, but hope to make a final decision on my destination in the coming weeks."

Adair enjoyed a strong season at interprovincial level, scoring 91 against Leinster Lightning, and bowling the Knights to victory over the NW Warriors in the 50-over cup at Eglinton.

His capture will be a major boost to whichever of the NCU Premier clubs is successful.

Given Ireland's poor displays at T20 international level, Adair is the type of impact player who may well be just what coach Graham Ford needs to turn around the decline.
