Droitwich Editorial 9th Dec, 2016   0

DROITWICH Spa Cricket Club leg spinner Jake Young has been announced as the club’s new captain for next summer.

Young takes over from Martyn Davies, who is stepping down from the role after five seasons in which he has seen Spa through a major period of transition.

The 24-year-old, who has also played for Evesham and Bromsgrove, will be hoping to build on Droitwich’s ninth place finish in this year’s Worcestershire County League Division One table.

“It’s great to have an opportunity to captain the club where I first started playing cricket 11 years ago and I’m looking forward to it,” he said.

“We are a relatively young squad that can only get stronger from our experiences of recent seasons and I’m confident that we can improve on the field by introducing more structure and a game plan into every match.”

He added: “With four Saturday sides and a flourishing youth section, the club as a whole is thriving and it is my hope that the Firsts can set the standard by challenging much higher up the table next year than we did this season.”

Meanwhile Karl Goddard has been re-elected Second Team skipper, whilst Scott Fenn takes charge of the Third Team again 25 years after leading them to the West Midlands Third XI Championship title.
