Irish International fast bowler Peter Chase has been registered to play for Durham in the upcoming LV=County Championship game with Lancashire.

The 20-year-old has been a consistent performer for the 2nd XI this season, and could now make his first class debut at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday.

Dublin-born Chase, who is contracted to Cricket Ireland, made his international bow against Sri Lanka A last month in Belfast and will remain available for all of his national team's fixtures.

Durham Head Coach Jon Lewis has included Chase in a 12-man squad for the clash with Lancashire after Graham Onions suffered a side strain during the Royal London One-Day Cup tie with Nottinghamshire Outlaws.

Scottish International Calum MacLeod is also included in a Durham championship squad for the first time.
