North Down have signed South African all-rounder Neil Brand for the 2022 season.

The 25 year-old has UK experience having represented both Somerset and Glamorgan Second XI's.

Brand is a slow left-arm bowler and left-handed batsman who plays for the Titans franchise.

He averages just under 40 in first-class cricket, but his List-A and T20 batting averages aren't as impressive.

He has also taken 41 first-class wickets, plus six apiece in the white-ball formats.

He replaces Sri Lankan Gayan Maneeshan.

The club have also confirmed the departure of leg-spinner Carl Robinson.
