MATT Cocken has resigned as skipper of the King’s Road after leading the club to its first victory in the LPL.
He went on to lead The Road to its most successful year to date.
His spell in 2010, which followed Raju Mazumder’s spell in charge, was less successful however, winning only two of his 19 games as captain.
Speaking about his decision, Matt explained that rewriting the record books was his main motivation to take charge last year.
He said: ‘It genuinely bothered me that the win record was SO bad last time. At least now I can retire without the stat books laughing at me for ever!
‘That was my main motivation for wanting to do it again so I’m happy to move on now and let the next generation have a go (I know he doesn’t look it but he is actually younger than me). I can now concentrate on a clean sweep of KRCSC awards next year…’
Nominations have been made for Matt’s replacement and the new skip will be decided at this year’s AGM on February 15.
