OVER 50s 2nd XI CAPTAIN - IAN HAYTER

The 2022 season is nearly upon us and early signs are encouraging with a number of new players wanting to join us. Like any cricket club, we're always on the look out for fresh blood to keep us going.

I first represented Devon in the U16s (in 1983) 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.

This will be the first season of another re-structure of the League, meaning we will have eight League matches and (at least) one knock out cup game… but we'll still need a big squad, and anyone interested in playing please do get in touch using the contact details below. I look forward to meeting some new old players this summer!
