Jack Tector is once again at the helm of the Claremont Road side.

The club have new recruits in Irish passport holding South African Curtis Campher and Simi Singh, but the duo are likely to miss the first three games, as is Harry Tector, all on Ireland duty in Southampton.

There's no Fionn Hand, who is playing his cricket this season in the UK with MCCYC. 

"We are really looking forward to the season ahead," said Tector.

"It’s great to have some sort of season with competitive games as it wasn’t looking good for a while!

"Being able to focus fully on T20 is nice. We’ve had a few practice games which has been a great help.

"We've have also lost James Parkinson who hung you the boots at the end of last season. He will be a loss and was a great servant to YM. 

"Mikey O’Reilly is one to watch out for this year. He is back bowling after a bad back injury and his batting has come on hugely."

YMCA start their campaign with a trio of home games against Railway Union (July 18), Clontarf (July 25), and North County (August 1).

They then face an away trip to The Hills (August 8), home to Balbriggan (Aug 15), before they finish on the road with matches at Malahide (Aug 22) and Terenure (Aug 29).
