Squad Update 17/18

Brightlingsea Superleague complete a trio of signings ahead of the new season!

Brightlingsea are pleased to announce that they have completed the signings of Mat Good, Jakob Kelly and Michael Hancocks ahead of the new season.

Mat, from Harwich, joins up with Brightlingsea on the back of an excellent season.

He played 5 Superleague games last year averaging 25.75 for the Regent Team. This has enabled him to be recommended for the Essex county team

Jakob Kelly played 3 matches averaging 23.24 also for Regent. Jakob has huge potential and has been an established competitor in the Essex youth team.

Michael Hancocks joins from Cressing and was one of the players of the season last year! Hitting a few 30+ averages along the way, Michael has also been called into the Essex team this season.

Unfortunately, there is departures. Our Captain Peter Jones (Smoothie) has decided to step down due to health reasons, we wish him all the best and thank him for last season! Alan Collins has decided to take up the hot seat and has been installed as new captain.

Also, Sam Lepley has left due to geographical reasons, our understanding is Sam is joining Springfield. We wish him all the best with his new team!
