David Delany will make his debut in Knights colours when he plays for the Emerging Knights against Leinster Lightning Bolts at Woodvale next week.

The 21 year-old Clontarf speedster made the switch to the Knights earlier this year, but hasn't featured in the interpro games this season yet due to study and exams in his degree course at Maynooth.

He has played four times for Leinster Lightning, and also made eight appearances for the Munster Reds in the T20 format.

The Emerging Knights are playing three games next week, taking on their NW counterparts at Muckamore on Tuesday and Wednesday in 50-over clashes, while their match at Ballygomartin Road on Thursday is a 40-over game - all are 11am starts.

Carrick's Matthew McCord will skipper the side in the first two matches, and he's joined by colleagues CJ van der Walt and Max Burton for those games, while Alex Haggan will play in the first and the third.

CIYMS opener John Matchett has been selected in all three games, while Belmont Road colleague Jacob Mulder will participate in the second.

Ben Rose of Instonians will lead the side in the Leinster Bolts encounter, and his Shaw's Bridge team-mates Murray Commins has been picked for two matches, as has James Hunter, while there will also be appearances for James and Ollie Metcalfe, James Magee and Matthew Humphreys.

Muckamore's Adita Adey is to play in the three games while his Moylena colleague Sam Gordon is selected in the first match on his home turf.

Other players selected are Holywood's Ross Adair, CSNI's Archie Johnston, Carl Robinson of North Down, and Woodvale's Stephen Bunting.
