Welcome back: Gary Kidd returns after injury

Gary Kidd is a welcome addition to the Waringstown team this weekend as they prepare for a crucial triple header which could decide their destiny in two competitions.

First up tonight is a third and final attempt to play their Ulster Bank Premier League game against Lisburn, so that will be over the minimum 20 overs, and they stay at home tomorrow for what should be another winnable game, against relegation-threatened Ballymena.

Kidd, the slow left arm former Ireland international, who has been out for more than a month, is expected to be eased back for that game ahead of the big one on Sunday, the Irish Cup semi-final away to Pembroke.

Waringstown lost the league leadership to North Down, with defeat at Civil Service North last weekend, and it is the Comber side's turn to visit Stormont tomorrow, followed by an away game against CIYMS on Sunday.

Instonians, the other title contenders, also face a huge weekend. Tomorrow they host CI in a repeat of the Challenge Cup final and then head to Eglinton on Sunday for their delayed Ulster Cup semi-final. North Down will host the winners in the final just seven days later.

Fixtures, Tonight (5.30pm) Ulster Bank Premier League: Waringstown v Lisburn (T20)

Tomorrow (11.00am): Carrickfergus v Lisburn, Civil Service North v North Down, Instonians v CIYMS, Waringstown v Ballymena. Sunday: CIYMS v North Down
