Newbuildings have confirmed the signing of Gareth McKeegan from Brigade and named the wicket-keeper batsman as their new captain.

It's a real statement of intent by the Championship side who just missed out on the signing of Ryan Hunter, who opted for a return to league and cup champions Brigade.

Newbuildings made the announcement at their AGM on Monday night when they also confirmed that Dale Culbert will be McKeegan's deputy.

The NW have also confirmed that the Senior Cup draw is likely to be held in February following the conclusion of a review process which is currently under way with two roadshows scheduled for this week at Eglinton and Fox Lodge.
