BARNSTAPLE & Pilton will have a father-and-son duo running team affairs this season.
Steve Moore remains as 1stXI captain, which is no surprise after he led the side to promotion into the C Division East last summer.
Jack Moore, the 17 year-old son of Steve, is the new vice-captain.
Skipper Moore has not signed any new players yet, but is looking around.
“We are trying to bring in a couple of new players to improve the side,” said Moore.
“I am aware that this will be a tough season for our young side but with the right attitude and commitment I am confident we can compete in this division.”
Nets are every Thursday at Park School in Barnstaple from 8pm.
FILLEIGH are on the hunt for a new overseas player to replace Justin Saker.
The Australian all-rounder – he bats, bowls and keeps wicket – has had three seasons at Deer Park. He is not returning for 2019.
Simon Prideaux, who has signed on for a ninth successive season as 1stXI skipper, said: “We are yet to recruit any new players however we are in talks with an overseas player from South Africa.”
One player who won’t be around in 2019 is batting all-rounder Rob Collier, who is devoting time to his business interests.
Filleigh have not booked any pre-season nets yet. Said Prideaux: “We are relying on natural talent rather than practice.”
NORTH Devon have started preparing for the season ahead in the Premier Division with Thursday night nets at Bideford College between 6-8pm.
