NW Warriors Head Coach Gary Wilson has welcomed the appointment of William Porterfield as his assistant for the 2021 Interprovincial campaign.

"I'm obviously delighted to have Porty involved," Wilson told CricketEurope.

"We known and played together for the best part of 21 or 22 years now, so it's great to be able to continue that.

"I've no doubt that he will add a lot to NW cricket in a coaching as well as playing capacity, and it's great to have him on board.

"We are both really excited to the challenge and looking forward to make a real difference."
