JAMES Couldrey has been named The Road’s new skip for 2012 after being voted in by club members.
The left-arm paceman beat Mark Isham in the race to win the honour of leading the Orange Caps into battle this season.
He replaces new dad Giles Fagan, who has stepped down following the birth of his son Freddie.
The election result was announced at the club’s AGM at The Draft House in Battersea today.
Among the other decisions made were to up the club membership fee to £30 due to rising costs and to hold a second two-day test match in the run-up to the Super Test.
Full minutes of the meeting and the decisions made will be released in due course.
