After last year’s superb season, Kings Langley CC are keeping things the same ahead of the new campaign.

At the club’s AGM this month, the captains for the 2012 season were decided and, unsurprisingly, the skippers of all of the senior sides remain unchanged.

Christian James, Mike Cooke, Tim Gould and Nick Turner will continue their roles in charge of the first to fourth sides, respectively.

However, there have been some changes in personnel in the vice-captain roles.

Mark Brazier, who rejoined the club from Premier League side Hemel Town during the last campaign, has stepped up to take over as vice-skipper of the first eleven.

The team is keen to push on again this season, having secured promotion to Division Two last year.

The vice-captain of the second XI, meanwhile, remains unchanged after back to back promotions with Tom Clark in the post.

The new third team vice-skipper is Dave Mitchell as they target promotion, while the fourth team will be assisted by Andrew Colquhoun – an ex Hertfordshire opening bowler and member of the Lord’s ground staff.

Colquhoun’s professional cricket career was unfortunately cut short by injury, but it is a sign of Kings Langley’s current strength that he is committed to helping the younger players develop at the lower levels of the club.

Elsewhere, the club’s winter training is currently in full swing and they are always on the lookout for high quality players to help sustain their progress.
