The Captain's Resignation Statement
Mon 15-Sep-2008 
 

Pacific first XI captain John Webley has announcedhis resignation. Here's his message in full: "I've been having a long hard think about my role as captain and I think I've come to the conclusion that I would like to stand down. I've not been enjoying my cricket as captain and I've been finding it increasingly frustrating with too many players giving me their opinions when it hasn't been called for.

It's also not helping my performances with the bat which have been fairly important in the past to us winning games like yesterday's. I would think either Chris, Darren or James G would be suitable replacements at least until the end of the season.

I'm sorry to do this mid-season but I really want to enjoy the last few games of the season and hopefully end on a few high notes to take into the off season."
