Glendermott have confirmed the signing of seamer Gareth Burns from Ballyspallen.

The opening bowler has a wealth of experience at senior level, having also played in recent years for Coleraine and Brigade amongst others.

He has struggled with injuries, but on his day and fully fit is a potent spearhead.

He played seven times for the NW Warriors in 2013-14 during the early days of the revamped interprovincial series.

The Rectory side are also hopeful of another recruit this week as they see to bolster their ranks ahead of the new campaign.
