CSNI sign New Zealand U19 international Luke Georgeson

CSNI have made their first addition ahead of next season by signing New Zealand U19 all-rounder Luke Georgeson.

Georgeson, who is an Irish passport holder, was named in the New Zealand squad for the 2018 competition where the host nation finished eighth after losing a seventh-placed play-off to England.

Tom Banton scored 112 that day but Georgeson was also a star performer, picking up figures of 3/29 from his 10 overs.

The 21-year-old is a left-handed batsman and opened in his only List A appearance to date against Central Districts earlier this year.

He played against a former CSNI overseas professional that afternoon in Kieran Noema-Barnett, who spent the 2009 and 2010 seasons in Belfast, scoring 1,177 runs.

Georgeson will join fellow youth international Marc Ellison, who captained at the 2006 U19 World Cup, at the club.

His pace bowling will also help plug the gap that has been left at Stormont by the departure of Graeme McCarter to Carrickfergus.
