CIYMS opening bowler Allen Coulter is back in the MTB Northern Knights squad for the T20 Festival in Pembroke this weekend.

The former Ireland A international is one of four CIYMS players included in the 13-man squad, with senior internationals Mark Adair, James Cameron-Dow and Jacob Mulder the others.

South African Murray Commins is named, alongside his Shaw's Bridge team mates Shane Getkate and Rob McKinley, who endured a tough time with injuries last season.

The squad is skippered by Gary Wilson, who will have CSNI colleague Graeme McCarter in the ranks, although there is no place for Marc Ellison.

Harry Tector is vice-captain, while Neil Rock will keep wicket. Internationals Greg Thompson and James McCollum from Waringstown complete the line-up.
