The reigning National Cup champions have Glenn Querl taking the captains armband once again.

While they may not have the opportunity to defend that title, the T20 format gives them a real fighters chance to land a few knock-out blows.

International commitments means that Kevin O'Brien won't feature much, while a number of club regulars have also indicated they will be sitting out the campaign with increased work commitments.

Josh Uddin returns after a few seasons with North Kildare and Clondalkin, while a new face is Ollie Perry, who has joined after moving to Dublin for work at the the end of 2019.

He is an opening bowler from Stone SP CC in Staffordshire and has performed regularly in the North Staff South Cheshire Premier League.

Ciaran Divney is not playing due to a knee injury but is the Youth Coach along with Glenn Querl.

"Like most other clubs we will play to win but also give young players an opportunity to develop," said former Irish international Kenny Carroll.

"Philippe le Roux is a promising young batsman that is my tip for one to watch for the future."

Railway start their season with a quartet of away trips to YMCA, Balbriggan, Malahide and Terenure, before home ties against North County, Clontarf and The Hills.
