PETER Randerson’s first task back in post as Heathcoat captain was to collect the Tolchards Devon Cricket League Premier Division champions’ trophy at the competition’s annual meeting.

Randerson stepped aside as captain during the last close season to allow Jackson Thompson to take the tiller.

With Thompson on his way to play for Premier rivals Cornwood next season, it was Randerson’s job to collect the silverware.

Jim Mardell, the managing director of league sponsors Tolchards Drinks, made the presentation.

It was a successful evening for Heathcoat as the 2nd XI also won their division and earned promotion into the B Division next summer.

In the absence of 2nd XI captain Paul Elliott the 2nd XI trophy was collected by Liam Lewis (below).
