Irish U19 international Jordan Neill is believed to be joining CSNI, having left Merrion.

The opener was part of the World Cup squad that performed admirably in South Africa, scoring 69 runs at an average of 13.80.

He will have no shortage of friendly faces if the move to Stormont is confirmed, with fellow youth internationals Harry Dyer, Finn Lutton, Ryan Hunter, Adam Leckey and James West all at the club.

Neill has serious senior ambitions, and is likely to be in the Munster Reds squad for this season's interpros.
