Andrew Riddles says he is returning to his cricketing home after confirming he is to rejoin Donemana next season.

The 31-year-old all-rounder, who has played for Ardmore for the last three years, is back at The Holm for the first time since 2003.

He told the News Letter: “I’ve missed playing for Donemana, it was never really the same for me being away, although Limavady was enjoyable because you were competing for trophies every year.

“In recent years I’ve been fighting to stay up but now I’m looking forward to winning things with Donemana. I’ve played with five or six of the lads before and there is also a lot of young talent there.”

Riddles, who played in Donemana’s 2000 Irish Cup final victory over Brigade, will be playing under the new captaincy of wicketkeeper-batsman Ricky Lee-Dougherty.

He left Donemana originally for Eglinton before being a key part of Limavady’s trophy-winning successes.

Donemana are also set to confirm that South African Jan Frylinck will be back in 2016 after a promising first season.
