Paul Glazzard was elected to be the new captain of BGCC 1st XI for 2017 at its Annual General Meeting on Sunday.
Taking over from Phil Milton, Paul will be hoping to lead a side with a number of young promising players towards the top half of Division 4 of the B&D League. He will be assisted by a new vice-captain, in the form of left arm pace bowler James Riley.
Meanwhile Ellie Holdaway continues into a second season as captain of the 2nd XI and hopes to build on the success of the promotion winning season of 2016. Former captain Mark Gracey returns as vice-captain.
In addition 2017 will see the re-launch of a Sunday league team with a Sunday 3rd XI playing in the North Somerset conference. The aim of this team will be to keep those players not selected on Saturdays in form, to give opportunities for occasional players and to develop those playing and junior level by allowing them to play in the longer format of the game. Mark Forge will captain the side with Steve Owen as vice-captain.
At junior level Barrow will be fielding an Under 15 and Under 13 team next season.
