Cambridgeshire minor counties cricketer Alan Burton is to captain Wisbech Town next summer.

Burton, who is also a former March Town player, decided to quit Peterborough Town this week after failing to get the post of skipper with the Northants League club.

James Williams has been forced to stand down as skipper at Wisbech due to work commitments.

He said: “I will be coaching the first team at the Grammar School next summer and that would mean missing six of our early Cambs League fixtures.”
