Steve Lazars has joined Bready for the 2021 season, moving from NCU side Muckamore.

The 38 year-old has a wealth of experience having played in Northern Ireland since joining Armagh as an overseas player, before moving to Ballymena then Lisburn.

He has also experience of North West cricket having enjoyed stints as Coleraine and Ardmore, where he represented the Warriors on 11 occasions in 2017 and 2018.

"Bready has been very welcoming and I am looking forward to the season playing with skipper David Scanlon, David Rankin and the boys, hoping to win some trophies," the former IPL player told CricketEurope

"Playing under coach Bobby Roa at Muckamore really helped me to work on my bowling action and mindset. It was an amazing experience.

"I had a pretty successful 2020 season in Australia playing in the Premier League and I got to work with Murray Goodwin which was brilliant.

:My fitness is at its best at the moment and I am looking forward to this challenge to see what comes out of it.

"I want to thank the Muckamore CC committee for supporting me over the last two seasons and it was a pleasure playing with captain Sam Gordon and the rest of the team. I wish them the very best."

Bready open the season with a tough encounter at The Rectory against Glendermott this Saturday, May 8th (2pm).
