Joe Clinton (captain)
The Hills & Leinster
Left Hand Bat & Right Medium Bowler
A genuine all rounder who has progressed through the youth representative teams at U15, U16, and U18 levels. Now a regular on his club's first eleven he played a significant role in their double cup victories in 1996. Brother of Mark who played in the 1987 tournament in Belfast.

Neil Anderson
Lurgan & Northern
Right Hand Bat & Slow Left Arm Bowler
A very promising left arm spinner who relies on his nagging accuracy to frustrate batsmen. Two outstanding performances for his club in the Semis and Final on their way to their Northern Senior Cup triumph last season earned him the Man of the Match awards, a unique double for a young player. A handy lower order batsman he hopes to be successful and go on to gain senior international honours.

Richard Beattie
North of Ireland & Northern
Right Hand Bat & Right Medium Bowler
A medium pacer who will probably share the new ball in the tournament. A keen, enthusiastic fielder with safe hands and a strong throwing arm. He has also progressed through the age groups and gave up rugby during the winter to concentrate on his preparation for Bermuda. A genuine number 11 batsman.

Simon Carruthers
Ballymena & Northern
Right Hand Bat
One of two players in the squad who are playing in their second youth tournament. A forceful middle order batsman whose style should be well-suited to the pitches in Bermuda. A first year student at Manchester University who has benefited from the experience gained in Holland, he is also a fine close fielder with a safe pair of hands.

Andrew Cousins
Waringstown & Northern
Right Hand Bat
One of two Waringstown players in the squad, he gained his place by his outstanding performance in the All Ireland Youth Interprovincial competition last season when he scored a record breaking 147 not out against Munster.. Another who has progressed through the youth ranks he likes to open the batting but is also happy at number three, a role he will probably fill in Bermuda.

David Finlay
North of Ireland & Northern
Right Hand Bat & Right Medium Bowler
A very promising young all rounder who earned his place in the squad by his performances and attitude during the winter preparation sessions. A member of his Club first eleven squad he is another who has graduated through the younger age groups. He enjoys most sports and is a talented rugby player.

Simon Harrison
Waringstown & Northern
Right Fast Medium Bowler & Right Hand Bat
The second member of the squad who played in the 1995 tournament where he was Ireland's leading bowler. Since then he has established himself on his club first eleven and has worked hard to perfect his bowling. From a well-known cricketing family he has the potential to emulate five of his uncles who have all gained senior international honours.

Mark Hutchinson
Bangor & Northern
Right Hand Bat & Leg Break Bowler
A young player who came to notice during the past couple of seasons with outstanding performances for his School team. He has worked hard to improve his bowling technique and has benefited from the expert coaching received at the Ulster Bank Cricket Academy. A stylish batsman, he should enjoy batting on the Bermudan pitches.

Ed Joyce
Merrion & Leinster
Left Hand Bat
A young cricketer with an immense amount of talent. A prolific run scorer who was nominated as the most promising young player in 1996 and 1997, he spent last winter in Australia broadening his experience and honing his talents. He is also a more than useful bowler but on this trip will act as deputy wicket keeper. His brother Gus acted in a similar capacity in the Denmark tournament in 1993.

Dwaynne McGerrigle
Donemana & North West
Right Medium Fast Bowler
The youngest member of the squad who will be eligible again in 1999 but who is already being earmarked for greater honours in the game. He has recently spent time in South Africa undergoing specialist coaching as one of a group of young sportspersons from Northern Ireland who are expected to gain full international recognition in the future. The only North West representative in the party.

Shane Moore
Old Belvedere & Leinster
Wicketkeeper & Right Hand Bat
A tidy, agile keeper who, once again, has progressed through the younger age groups. Kept well on last year's U 18 tour to Scotland and Durham and showed his prowess with the bat with a gritty performance to earn a draw in the two day game with Scotland and his attacking flair in the one day game with Durham. Another multi-talented sportsman he captained the Irish Schools Rugby XV to victories over Wales and Scotland during the winter.

Joe Morrissey
Merrion & Leinster
Right Fast Medium Bowler & Left Hand Bat
'Big Joe' first came to prominence as a promising fast bowler at Under 15 level. Since then he has developed his batting and is now in the genuine all rounder class. A permanent member of his club first eleven, he is very enthusiastic about his cricket and his selection for this trip is reward for the time and effort he has put into developing his talents.

Michael O'Herlihy
Merrion & Leinster
Right Hand Bat & Off Break Bowler
Another of the three members of the Merrion Club in the party, Michael is another product of the youth system having gained representative honours at U13, U15 and U18 levels. Earned his place by his batting performances on last season's U 18 tour of Scotland and Durham. He bowls off spin bowler and hopes to fulfil his ambition to play in South Africa by helping the team qualify for next year's World Youth Cup.

Kevin O'Malley
Old Belvedere & Leinster
Right Hand Bat
A talented, stylish batsman whose performances for his club first eleven in 1996 earned him his place in the squad. Yet another who had played for his province and country at the younger age levels. Began his career as an all rounder but now prefers to concentrate on developing his batting skills. A good fielder in any position with safe hands and a strong throwing arm.

Ian Johnston
The Irish Cricket Union Coaching Development officer who has worked closely with Mike Hendrick since his appointment to put in place coaching structures for the benefit of all players with the potential to play international cricket. A former international who claimed the prize scalp of Imran Khan in a Nat West fixture he is managing the team for the first time having attended four previous tornaments as coach. Well suited to his new role and ideally suited for making decisions which will affect the future of the tournament.

Mike Hendrick
The former Derbyshire and England bowler who captured 70 wickets during his test career was appointed National Coach in 1995. Since then he has concentrated on raising the profile of the senior team and led them to success in last season's Triple Crown and European Cup competitions, narrowly missing out in qualifying for the 1999 World Cup with their fourth place in the recent ICC trophy in Malaysia. Is looking forward to his first IYT and continuing his success with the squad gaining a place in the 1998 World Youth Cup by a top three slot in Bermuda.

Ray Daly
Assistant Coach
A former senior international, Ray has been involved in coaching Leinster Youth squads for a number of years. His involvement with this squad began in 1995 when he accompanied the Ireland Under 16 group to a tournament in Wales. Last year he coached the Under 18 panel on their tour to Scotland and worked with the players during their winter sessions in preparation for this trip. An accomplished batsman in his playing days he now devotes his time to coaching and chairing the Leinster Schoolboys Committee who administer and organise youth cricket in the Dublin area.
