The Curious Case of Benjamin Boorman

Club news item


Pacific's fate in 2013 has been entrusted to Ben Boorman, who was elected as club captain at tonight's AGM, writes Toby.

Ben impressed in 2012 with his organisational skills while leading the Saturday side. He will replace the legendary Jon Webley, standing down as club captain after several years at the helm.

Ben will be supported by Giaco Bridgett as vice captain. Giaco, who has played representative cricket for Italy, illustrates Pacific's international diversity and will bring a bowler's perspective to the running of the side.

Ben will oversee the Saturday XI too, although the captaincy is likely to be rotated to give new players a chance to shine.

Aroon Korgoankar will again lead the midweek side in the Victoria Park cup.
