Andy appointed captain at Banwell & Churchill

Andy Brooks is the new 1st XI captain at Banwell & Churchill for the coming season.

Banwell and Churchill Cricket Club recently held both their annual dinner and meeting.

At the dinner, player of the season presentations were made. The 1st XI award went to Andy Brooks and to Mike Pye for the seconds. It was reported that both league teams had finished near the top of their respective divisions last season.

At the meeting, Andy Brooks was appointed captain of the 1st XI for the coming season and Jon Fowle for the 2nd XI with Dave Quick in charge of the Sunday side.

It was stated that improvements to the facilities both on and off the field of play had continued and that a patio in front of the pavilion would be in place for the start of the season.
