Former professional Ryan Driver has stepped down as captain of the Jersey cricket team, bringing an end to a 15-month spell in the position.

Driver's stint as captain, which began in March 2009, encompassed an inter-insular defeat in Guernsey and Jersey's participation in the World Cricket League Division V in Nepal, a campaign that saw Jersey narrowly demoted to World Cricket League Division VI.

Driver topped the Jersey batting averages during that tournament, recording an average of 46.40, whilst he was also Jersey's top wicket-taker, taking 11 wickets.

Driver, who has played first-class cricket for both Worcestershire and Lancashire, also played instrumental roles in Jersey's European Division 2 and World Cricket League Division V successes in 2008. He has been a key member of the squad ever since and remains available for selection.

The Jersey Cricket Board will announce the new captain when it announces the squad for the ICC European Division 1 tournament beginning on the 13th July.
