Stuart Thompson has been added to the Ireland squad travelling to England for the three-match ODI series.

The 29 year-old has won 83 caps, and switched from hometown club Eglinton to Belfast side CSNI earlier this year, making his first appearance on Thursday night against Carrick in a pre-season friendly.

He's needed as one of the four players being supplied by Hampshire for training purposes and an intra-squad match has picked an injury.

Given the strict COVID-19 protocol conditions in the bio-secure venue, it was too late for Hampshire to provide a replacement player.

Ireland fly out from Dublin in a specially chartered plane today.
