Appleby-Frodingham Cricket Club elects Cambridge Blue Duncan Heath as first team skipper
OPENING batsman Duncan Heath will take over as captain of App-Frod CC from next summer.
He has been handed the role following Matt Morland's decision to step down after eight years as skipper.
Heath, a Cambridge blue, was, along with overseas player Tony Manning, the Steelmen's main run scorer last season. He was appointed captain at the club's AGM, held at Brumby Hall.
There were few other changes, with the club's office-holders re-elected.
