We are delighted to confirm that Phil Wilkinson will captain the seconds for season 2017.
For 85 year old club legend Phil, 2017 will be his 75th season at the club. Asked to comment he said “it’s an amazing honour and I can’t wait to get stuck into those free teas again”. Indeed, we’ve ordered another pie warmer for the Tea room Phil, so no worries there.
Whether this appointment will mean the end of Phil’s legendary head high, leg side beamers, remains to be seen. Either way we wish Phil the best of luck for the coming season, a club man through and through.
