Charles and Anthony Kay (vice-captain) have been appointed as the new leadership team for Jersey’s Senior squad who are preparing to play in World Cricket League Division 5 in September.

Coach Neil MacRae commented ‘Peter was an outstanding leader and figurehead for Jersey Cricket for some years. Charles and Anthony are both very experienced cricketers having played in numerous ICC tournaments and we are confident that this strong leadership team will continue to take the team forward and enjoy success in the future.’
