2nd XI

Ben Gibbons

Vice Captains:
James Ellis

With everything that has gone on over the last 18months I’m thrilled to be able to get back to leading the side in the two counties Div 5 with the clear aim of getting us back into Div 4. 

We’ve got a great squad put together now with a mix of experienced guys with 1st team experience and young guns looking to make that step up. This should leave us with a real determined bunch who are desperate to get the side competing at the highest level and that starts with promotion this year.
