Ryan takes over from Matty Beckett after 14 years in charge of the 1st XI.

Club officials feel that Ryan is the perfect fit as skipper across all 3 competition formats and is somebody who will lead from the front with bat & ball.

On his appointment Gibbo commented ‘Stamford Bridge is a special club with great people & its a privilege to be asked to take on the captaincy following the brilliant foundations set over many years by Matty. I look forward to leading the boys out in April and hopefully bringing home some silverware to the club in 2020 and beyond’.

Experienced all-rounder Dom Rhodes remains as vice captain.

Matty Beckett took over the captaincy from Pete Aconley at the age of 20 & has gone on to lead the team in over 300 league games (Div 1 Champions, 2 x YDSCL & YLN Runners-up), become a consistent performer with bat & ball & a very reliable fielder. The club would like to thank Matty for his hard work & commitment to The Battle Axes.
