A successor is needed to follow Yorkshire’s most succesful county captain ever as Mark Birkin has decided to retire after guiding Yorkshire to the counties championship for the third year in a row.
The work involves organising a team to play Lancashire usually in February over 12 boards and then a team to play in the national stages of the county championships. The quarter final is usually played in May, Semi final in June and the final in early July.
There are a number of vice captains to call on for help and advice.
Anyone interested or any further questions? Please contact Ihor Lewyk.
On behalf of all the open team players, my thanks to Mark for all his hard work.

Well whoever does it will have massive boots to fill – Mark has done a brilliant job with betting the teams interested and so strong for the final stage(s). It must be hugely draining too, so not surprised he’s done with it.
I’m not at all interested myself for sundry reasons. (I don’t even really make the team for starters!).
