OVER 50s 2nd XI CAPTAIN - IAN HAYTER
I am hugely honoured to be given the opportunity to captain a county side, especially one in which there are so many great characters and team-mates. We play our cricket hard, but fair, and always for fun.
I first represented Devon too many years ago to mention - in the U16s when I was playing for Teignmouth in what is now the Devon League A Division. I was working abroad for most of my 20s but played in a Pakistani league in Tokyo for several years, before returning to Devon and moving to Westward Ho! where I joined Bideford CC - and I have been there ever since.
With the new-look League format, there’s even more cricket to be played this summer, but if our squad remains as strong as it was for most of last season, I would expect us to be pushing hard for a knock-out place come the end of July…
Here's to a good summer!
