Graham Hume has confirmed he will be joining Waringstown for the 2021 season.

The 29 year-old has been playing in the NW with Coleraine and also at interprovincial level with the Warriors, where he won the Player of the Year accolade in 2019.

"Iím excited about joining a club as big as Waringstown, with a great history of winning trophies," Hume told CricketEurope.

"It was a tough decision to leave Coleraine where I have loved playing."

As well as playing at The Lawn, he will undertake an extensive coaching role which attracted him to making the switch.

It's uncertain at this stage where he will be playing his representative cricket next season. Under their current stance of only selecting players from within the region who don't have Ireland contracts, then he wouldn't feature for the Warriors.

However with Boyd Rankin and Stuart Thompson losing their contracts, it would appear necessary for the Warriors to have a change of heart.

Hume, a former South African U19 international qualifies to play for Ireland through residency in 2022.
