Eglinton wicket-keeper Simon Olphert has joined Brigade for the 2020 season.

The Beechgrove side confirmed the switch on social media.

"Brigade have further strengthened their 1st XI squad for the 2020 season with the addition of wicketkeeper/batsman Simon Olphert.

"Having represented Ireland at U15, U17 & U19 levels and with many years experience in senior cricket, Simon will be a great asset to the squad."

The 26 year-old will don the gloves as a replacement for long-standing wicket-keeper Gareth McKeegan who joined Newbuildings earlier this month.

There had been talk of NW Warriors keeper Will Smale moving there, but that appears to have fallen through.
