Former Irish international Gary Neely is the new captain at Ardmore for the forthcoming season.

The pace bowler takes over the reins from Ciaran Curley following the club AGM.

Neely will inherit a side which has undergone a few personnel changes over the close season, with Andrew Riddles and professional Foster Mutizwa leaving the club.

Left-armer Stephen Dunn joins from CIYMS, while Kevin Martin returns to his roots following spells at Brigade, Strabane and St Johnston.

The club has a new professional - South African all-rounder Marlo Jardine who is a top order batsman and off-spin bowler.
