Caistor Cricket Club has appointed its youngest ever captain in the club’s recent history.

Gareth Johnson, who left Caistor Grammar School two years ago, has been elected as the new Caistor Cricket Club captain for the 2014 season.

His appointment was confirmed at the club’s AGM in the Sports and Social Club.

Johnson, from Keelby, is presently at university but returned to the club to play throughout last season, keeping wicket as well as batting high in the order.

He replaces Liam Wood who has been captain in the past two seasons and announced he had decided to stand down near the end of last season.

Caistor will again play in the Lincolnshire Premier league this season.
