ZIMBABWE international PJ Moor will play for Munster Reds in this year’s inter-provincials with Clontarf his likely destination for club cricket this season.
The former CIYMS batsman — he played at Belmont in 2013 — will keep wicket for the Reds, allowing Neil Rock to switch back to Northern Knights where he will wear the gloves full-time after Gary Wilson’s retirement to take up the head coach’s role at North West Warriors.
Moor has an Irish passport and, although he has played 78 times for Zimbabwe, including eight Test matches, he has not featured since 2019 and it completes the wicket-keeping jigsaw for this year’s inter-pros. Current Ireland No. 1 Lorcan Tucker will keep for Leinster Lightning and Warriors have Will Smale.
Warriors have also confirmed their five additional players to the 12-man core squad previously announced. The big name addition is Stuart Thompson, who may have lost his Ireland contract, but the 29-year-old is a veteran of 83 internationals.
The other players called up by coach Wilson — all of whom have played for Warriors before — are Aaron Gillespie, William McClintock, Varun Chopra and Brigade’s young batsman Kyle Magee.
