English all-rounder Neil Whitworth will be playing for Lisburn during the 2022 season.

Whitworth joins the club from Hartlepool CC where he enjoyed great success, winning the Evening Gazette Player of the Year in 2020.

He is now married to a local girl and living in the Lisburn area.

His exploits for Hartlepool had alerted several local clubs once his availability had become known but he plumped for Lisburn.

The signing will certainly give the club a boost for the campaign next year.
