For some time now, as part of its development programme, the NCU has been keen to develop fixtures that would encompass a group of players some of whom may have passed beyond the Under 19 age group and for whom no representative cricket was currently available.

This season it has been possible to arrange a series of fixtures for a side designated as the NCU Under 21ís

The side will be captained for the series of games by Jordan McClurkin and managed by Eugene Moleon and Uel Graham


The first of these games will be against a strong MCC touring side at Carrickfergus on Wednesday 17th June.

The game will be an 11.00 start and will be played in white clothing with a red ball.
