Ireland Academy all-rounder Cameron Melly could be on the move to Beechgrove for the 2023 season.

Melly, attended Millfield School, and is now at Cardiff UCCE.

His grandfather comes from Belfast, and he is a hard-hitting batsman who can clear the ropes.

He featured for Ireland in the European T10 tournament in Spain, and he is keen to establish himself in Boyd Rankin's Warriors side.

Brigade had a disappointing 2022 season after the highs of 2021, when they won four trophies including the All-Ireland T20.

A number of clubs are interested in his signing, but Brigade are the front runners at this stage.

Another player who could be moving to the region is Ireland U19 international Liam Doherty who was a controversial selection for last year's tournament. He too is exploring his options ahead of the campaign which gets under way in April.
