The 2021 season will be challenging, not least because some of us played no cricket at all last year, but also due to the restrictions imposed upon us all due to Covid. The Committee and all the clubs where we play are working hard to make sure we play in a safe environment.

So we're looking forward to the season, and 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 in the U16s when I was playing for Teignmouth in what is now the Devon League A Division. I worked abroad for most of my 20s but played in a Pakistani league in Tokyo for several years, before returning to Devon in late 1994 and moving to Westward Ho! where I joined Bideford CC - and I have been there ever since.

As last year was a non-starter, this will be the first season of the re-structure of the League, meaning we will have fewer games than in 2019, with eight League matches and (at least) one knock out cup game… but we'll still need a big squad, and just like any cricket club we're always on the look out for fresh blood. I look forward to meeting some new old players this summer!
