Surrey and Ireland wicketkeeper batsman Gary Wilson is the headline pick in the Northern Knights’ squad for this week’s three-day match with the North West Warriors.

Wilson, who has fallen out of favour at Surrey, will bolster the Knights’ batting for the game at Comber, which starts tomorrow.

There are opportunities for young batsman Adam Dennison of Waringstown and John Matchett of CIYMS.

Jacob Mulder, who is not playing in today’s 50-over game with the Warriors at Waringstown after his employers North Down insisted he play in the Premier League match against Civil Service North instead, is also included in the 12.

Squad: James Shannon, Capt, Adam Dennison, Phil Eaglestone, Shane Getkate, John Matchett, Rob McKinley, Jacob Mulder, Lee Nelson, Nathan Smith, Nikolai

Smith, Greg Thompson, Gary Wilson.
