The North West not only have four players in the Ireland Cricket World Cup squad but they are also well represented off the field.
Roy Torrens has been the Ireland manager for a number of years and will be at the helm again, however this will be his last official duty as he will give up his post at the conclusion of the tournament, he will be a massive void to fill.
Roy will not be lost to the game however as he has been appointed to his former club Brigade’s, cricket committee which will be a massive help to their club.
Strabane man Joe Doherty in his role as President of Cricket Ireland is also out with the squad, a great honour for the popular official who has worked tirelessly for many years in the local and international arena.
The 64-year-old has been deeply involved in cricket here all his life, attending his first ever game, Strabane v St Johnston, in 1955.
