Two new skippers for Old Town

James Yates and Chris Fossey have been given the task of trying to improve Old Town’s fortunes in the Foster’s Halifax League this summer.

They have been appointed first and second team captains respectively at the Boston Hill club.

Town’s teams propped up the bottom divisions in 2014 but the club’s re-election at the annual general meeting was never in doubt.

Yates and Fossey have both returned to Old Town in recent years.

Yates takes over from Adil Shah, who may not be available every week due to university studies. He is a batsman/wicketkeeper. Fossey, who takes the reins from Paul Thwaites, is a batsman.

The new captains are expected to appoint their own vice-captains in due course.

Meanwhile, Old Town are looking for a groundsman and anyone interested should contact Neil Thwaites on (01422) 883992.
