By Fenland Citizen Reporter

Tyler Phillips will lead March Town Cricket Club into this season's Whitings League Division 1 campaign, having been re-elected as club captain at last Tuesday night's AGM.

It will be the pace bowler's fourth term in charge of the Saturday 1st XI.

During his first season he skippered the side to the Division 2 championship and then following a difficult season, he and vice-skipper Andy Wright helped March to a respectable seventh position last summer.
