Cricket Ireland has agreed to terminate the contract of Luke Georgeson by mutual consent.

After agreeing terms on a central-contract earlier this month, Georgeson has informed Cricket Ireland that he will be withdrawing from the full-time contract after reconsidering his future playing options.

Georgeson, 23, will remain in Belfast and play for club side CSNI this summer, but will no longer be in contention for an Irish call-up.

Following consultation between Cricket Ireland and Northern Knights’ selectors, the Knights will shortly select a replacement member to join their core squad of 12 to replace Georgeson, which will be announced in due course.


Andrew White, Chair of National Men’s Selectors, said:

“We are obviously disappointed that Luke will no longer be making himself available for Ireland – he is a talented player and was a firm part of our plans going forward. He contacted me last week to discuss his situation, and subsequently met with the High Performance Director and men’s head coach, and while unfortunate, we can understand his decision and agreed to mutually terminate the contract. We wish Luke well with his future career.”



Luke Georgeson said:

“Unfortunately the circumstances have arisen where Cricket Ireland and I have mutually agreed to end my contract. The basis of this decision is that I have come to a clearer understanding that I still harbour ambitions of playing for New Zealand, and I underestimated how much I want to realise this dream until recent days.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank Cricket Ireland for their effort and commitment to me over the past year. I have been overwhelmed by the understanding and support shown by all those who have been a part of this decision. It is not one that has been made easily, and I am truly grateful for the support I have been shown throughout.

“This, however, will not conclude my involvement in Irish cricket. I am passionate about cricket in Ireland and the NCU, and I will endeavour to stay involved and make a difference wherever I can. I appreciate everyone’s understanding about this decision.”
