Eglinton are another club to have a new skipper on show this year as Andy Millar takes the reins for the first time.

Last year's captain and vice-captain, Mike Erlank and Stuart Thompson won't be at the village club this season and neither will Simon Olphert who has joined Brigade.

There are a trio of "ins" to help compensate- Harry and Dylan Waterstone among them, and in what is sure to cause real confusion in the next couple of months, former Ballyspallen player Jamie Millar will come in to join Eglinton's own Jamie Millar!

The new skipper was confident that his side would remain competitive this year although while there are only three sides in their group, all of them are from the Premier Division.

"It's a very tough group for sure but we're looking forward to building on 2019 when we finished second in the league. Obviously losing players of the quality of 'Thommo' and Mike is going to have an impact, but we feel we have as good a chance as anyone, especially in T20.

"We have a few lads who like to hit the ball but that's not necessarily all we're about. There are a few quality youngsters in the first team squad as well- Robbie Millar and Tommy Orr just two I could mention.

"Stevie Dunn and Simon Dunn are both back again this season too so we have a good mix of youth and experience.

"Like everybody else, the senior cup is our main target but the boys are now really just looking forward to getting out there and playing."

In a three-team group only one match a day is possible, however with Coleraine playing 24-hours earlier, they will provide the opposition to Millar's men at Eglinton next Saturday, July 18th.
