Captains Words

Jonty Margetts

The season of 2020 was my first year captaning the 2s. After its delayed start due to covid, we began with a bang. 6 straight wins, 5 of these were league wins. Although the league was non competitive due to its late start, this still was an incredible start. Throughout the short season we had a similar team each week, this was due to the fact of it being very young. Both opening bowlers aged 16 and an opening batter at 14. This demonstrates the outstanding youth system we have here at Capel.

This season I’m happy to announce my new vice captain Rudi Junike. This is an excellent step for the 2s as it brings more experience to the table if games become tight. It also enables players such as myself to push for the 1st XI. This will hopefully inspire many youngsters to follow a similar path into the 1s.
