Civil Service North of Ireland is delighted to announce the signing of West Indian quick Colin Archibald for their 2024 NCU campaign.

Archibald is a talented left-arm seam bowling all-rounder playing for the Leeward Islands in West Indian domestic cricket.

From Nevis, Archibald represented Leeward’s through the age-groups before making his professional debut across all formats, during the 2019/20 season.

Since his maiden season, he has impressed, particularly in red-ball cricket which has seen him play in the CPL for St Kitts & Nevis Patriots (2020-21), and Windies A side (10/08/22), following 2 massive wickets v England (01/03/22) for the Board XI (those of Lawrence and Stokes).

In May 2022, during the fourth round of the Windies Championship, Archibald also hit the headlines by scoring a remarkable maiden century (106*) from the number 10 position.

When you factor his left-arm seam is his primary skill, it’s fair to say Archibald is some prospect for West Indies cricket.

A whole-hearted cricketer, Archibald spent the 2023 season plying his trade in England. Playing for Seaham Park in the strong North East Premier League, he excelled (29 wickets at 20.41).

For the 2024 season, the Leewards left-armer will ply his trade in Northern Ireland having signed for Civil Service for their Northern Cricket Union campaign.
