Coleraine teenager Marcus Poskitt will be playing the 2019 season with Bready after agreeing a move to the Premier League champions.

The left-hand opener and wicket-keeper's move is a huge blow to the Bannsiders, having been a regular in the side since he was just 14.

"Iím very thankful for the long time I have spent at Coleraine and I wish them all the best for this season." Poskitt told CricketEurope.

"Itís been a very difficult choice but Iím looking forward to the challenges that playing with my new club will bring.

"Iím very excited to start this new season for Bready and hopefully help contribute to another great year."

Poskitt is an Irish youth international, who also made his debut for the NW Warriors last season, playing two T20 matches in the interpro series during the Festival at Pembroke.

It's good news for Bready who last month lost Irish international Craig Young to North Down, and also seem destined to lose the services of Ryan Barr.
