This will be my fourth season with the club and very much looking forward to my first year as 3rd XI captain.
The 3rd XI in my time with the club has shown itself to be a fantastic blend of experience and youth and I’m very much looking forward to giving some of those youngsters a chance to shine this year and show their skills.
I’m sure there is going to be some good hard-fought cricket this year, and if we all play as well as I know we can then I’m confident we’ll come out on top more often than not. Most importantly though I’m looking forward to a nice cold beer after every game.
