Ashley Watson Named One-Day Captain for 2017 Season

At the recent Annual AGM it was announced that Chris Brown has decided to step down from the one-day captaincy with immediate effect and that Ashley Watson would be taking over the role. Although Chris Brown will remain captain for the longer format of the game.

Chris Brown had this to say at the recent AGM.

“I was elected as captain again for 2017 and I had decided that in one-day cricket I wanted to take more of an off-field role, in terms of coaching the lads,” Brown explained. “I felt it was time for me to stand down as captain in one-day but to remain in the longer format and I’m looking forward to it.

“I’m 42 now and I can’t go on forever. Our chairman David Bowker and Ashley and I had a chat on the penultimate day at Cumberland last season and I said I was thinking about not playing the one-dayers.

“Ashley stood in for me against Lincolnshire last season when I was injured and I wanted to take on a bit more in terms of coaching. It gives my body a bit more a chance to recover from three-day games as well.”
