There is an overseas professional at the Bee Gees with South African Divan Posthumus joining for the 2024 campaign. The 29 year-old is a right-arm medium pace bowler who bats in the middle-order.

He has taken 31 first-class wickets for Easterns with a best-bowling return of 5 for 80, as well as scoring three half centuries in ten matches.

Also joining is Pushepender Singh arriving from Newbuildings.

The loss of Raymond Curry to Donemana is a considerable one, while Mark Snodgrass and Mattie Barr will also be missed.

"The fruits of our youth programme are now bearing fruit with Mark Robinson (Ireland u15s training squad) the latest coming off the conveyor belt on the verge of senior cricket," said Johnny Haslett.

"We were obviously disappointed to lose Raymond Curry to Donemana but we want to wish him well with the incoming season ahead. Mattie Barr is also taking a year out. 

"With Davy Cooke, Heinrich Roberts, some of our more seasoned campaigners plus our new South African professional. Then add in our young guns, we hope to have a good showing in the Championship which is promising to be extremely competitive this season. We a hoping to get a good cup run too.

"There is a lot of work continuing off the field with a busy youth section which Divan will be invaluable in helping with. 

"We are very fortunate as a club to have so many good volunteers around the club helping in all areas to deliver what is a very busy cricket season for the Bonds Glen CC."
