Ballyspallen opening bowler Josh Wilson is leaving the club to move to Brigade.

The teenager has played for the Junior Warriors and is highly rated by their coaching staff.

His father Gregory was a regular in the successful Brigade side for a decade, from the mid 90s onwards.

He and Mark Simpson each claimed five wickets as they bowled Ardmore out for 17 to win the 1998 Senior Cup.

Josh and Cameron Melly are the two new faces at Brigade this year, with Graeme McCarter the only departee.

Brigade begin their season on Saturday April 29th with a short trip to meet Glendermott at The Rectory.
