Padiham Cricket Club - Second XI Captain
At the end of the 2016 season, Steve Meehan stepped down as the 2nd XI captain after 3 years in charge. The committee would like to place on record their thanks to Steve for his dedication over not just the past three years but his many many years of playing for the 1st XI, 2nd XI & 3rd XI. We are hopeful we haven't seen Steve step out onto the Arbories for the last time.
The committee along with former captain Steve discussed his possible successor at length and are delighted to announced Phil Edmondson as the new Second XI Captain of Padiham Cricket Club.
Phil has played for the club since 2012 and has throughly enjoyed his time at the club. With over 20 years experience in local league cricket the club felt he is the perfect replacement for Steve and I'm sure the whole club wish him all the very best.
Phil said "I'm absolutley delighted with being appointed as 2nd team captain for the upcoming season, Steve Meehan has done a fantastic job over the years and I hope to carry on his good work but also to put my mark on it as well. I know it's going to be a tough job but we've got a great set lads and I'm looking forward to the challenge."
Phil looks forward to see ALL players on Thursday 2nd March for the first indoor training session. :-)
