Port Elizabeth - The Warriors have signed Ryan Bailey from the Knights after unveiling their list of contracted players for the 2013/14 cricket season.

In a statement released by Cricket South Africa (CSA) earlier, it states that the Chairman of the Selection Committee of Cricket Eastern Cape announced that there are two new contracted players to the union; 19 year old Solomzi Nqweni from Port Elizabeth and former Knights batsman Ryan Bailey. 

Nqweni attended Grey High School and has played EP U19, SA U19 and EP provincial cricket.  He is a right medium/fast bowler who is currently at the EP Cricket Academy. 

Bailey, 30, has extensive experience having played 97 First-class ,103 Limited over and 60 T20 matches.  Bailey is currently overseas playing club cricket and will return to set up home in Port Elizabeth in September.

Also contracted by the franchise are Rusty Theron and Ashwell Prince who are no longer contracted to Cricket South Africa.

CSA contracted players Colin Ingram and Wayne Parnell will be available to the Chevrolet Warriors, while coach Piet Botha’s contracted has also been extended for a further 2 years.

“It is refreshing to see that the majority of the squad are made up of talented young players and based on some good performances by some of the younger players this past season I am very confident that the new squad will lead the franchise to challenge for some trophies over the next two years” said Botha.

The full list of contracted players to the Warriors is as follows:
Colin Ackermann, Ryan Bailey, Andrew Birch, Athenkosi Dyili, Aya Gqamane, Simon Harmer, Davy Jacobs, Christiaan Jonker, Vuyisa Makhaphela, Solomzi Nqweni, Michael Price, Ashwell Prince, Gurshwin Rabie, Jon Jon Smuts, Kelly Smuts, Rusty Theron, Craig Thyssen, Basheer Walters.
