Bangor showed signs of getting back to their true selves in 2018, and with a decent campaign under their belts could be one of the sides in the promotion frame in what is sure to be a highly competitive league.

Taimur Khan is there again as Head Coach, while Mike Grossett returns from North Down and takes up a role as Director of Cricket.

Looking ahead to the season, club spokesperson Stephen Burns said:

"We expect it to be another really competitive season with two good teams coming up in Templepatrick and Ballymena; both are tough places to play, especially as they will be coming off the back of a season where they won most (or all!) of their games.

"As a team, we won most of our tight contests last season which bodes well for our maturing team as we face experienced sides such as Woodvale, Derriaghy and Downpatrick.

"With a few of our younger guys moving to England for work, we will need squad availability to be as consistent as it was last year if we are to challenge for the title again.

"If we get a good summer where wickets are flat, there is no doubt we will continue to enjoy our attractive brand of cricket that ‘The Party Boys’ enjoy so much!"
