Dave Carr is the new first XI skipper at Stevenage Cricket Club.

The opening batsman/wicketkeeper is a product of the club's youth policy and has been a regular first teamer for the last five seasons.

Since the conception of Hertfordshire's single league structure in 1994, Stevenage are the only club to play in the county's top division every season.

Carr (pictured left) is now being given the opportunity to push the club to promotion to the Home Counties Regional League Division One.

He said: "The club has several youth players who could push for first team selection within a couple of years.

"Our aim is to get promotion as soon as possible so that the club and these youngsters can play at the highest level of club cricket."
