St Johnston have announced the signing of Graeme McCarter from Brigade.

The former Irish international is taking on a player-coach role at the Donegal club.

McCarter has played club cricket with Killyclooney, Fox Lodge, Coleraine, CSNI, Carrickfergus as well as Brigade and English county side Gloucestershire.

A knee injury has severely restricted his mobility, and he has rarely bowled the past two seasons.

He did score 386 runs at 25.66 for Brigade in 2022.

The North West season gets underway next month with all 15 senior sides playing in just one division. 

St Johnston's first game is against one of McCarter's former clubs - senior cup holders Fox Lodge.
