Friday 13th January: Oxfordshire Cricket are announcing that Jonny Cater has been
appointed captain of the senior men’s first team for the upcoming 2017 season with Lloyd
Sabin appointed as vice-captain.
Jonny, 27, was the clear choice to take on the role having been vice-captain for past three
years. He has earned the respect of the team through his outstanding contributions as
batsman and wicket-keeper in 50 county appearances since his debut in 2011. Jonny has
scored 2,619 runs including 17 half centuries and 5 centuries during this period and has taken
90 catches and made 17 stumpings.
Jonny Cater had this to say on his appointment:
“I am honored to be given the opportunity to captain Oxfordshire CCC. It was a decision
which didn’t take much persuading, I thoroughly enjoyed my role as vice-captain over the
past three seasons and I see it as a natural progression to now lead the side moving into the
2017 season. I enjoyed stepping in when Luke was away last season, and believe the
responsibility will only help my game as well as hopefully helping others to perform to their
best. I am looking forward to getting started and meeting the boys for pre-season training
