Killyclooney have been forced into a late change of professional, with West Indian Kimani Melius their new choice for the upcoming campaign.

The Windward Islands player is an aggressive top-order batter, who will be well suited to the small confines of the picturesque Tyrone venue.

He has UK  experience with Westhoughton CC in 2021, scoring 1062 runs at 46.17 and in 2022 with Bradshaw CC making 444 runs at 37.00 in the GMCL Prem 2.

He will be hard pushed though to emulate the success of last season's pro Blayde Capell whose 1700 runs propelled Killyclooney into title contention.
