​Wilson named as Vice Captain

Wilson named as Vice Captain

Gary Wilson has been named as Derbyshire’s Vice Captain for the 2017 season.

The Ireland international, who joined the Club from Surrey on a three-year deal in September, will assist Captain Billy Godleman both on and off the field under the Club’s new coaching model.

Wilson has a wealth of experience both domestic and internationally, and has previous experience leading a side when he captained Surrey for five months in 2014.

Wilson said: “I’m honoured to be asked to be Vice Captain. We have some exciting plans for next season and I look forward to working closely with Billy as we try to put these into action. 

“We have a great group of players who are all determined to do well and I’m confident together, with our destiny in our own hands, we can push for a successful summer.”

Godleman added: “It's fantastic news to have Gary confirmed as my Vice Captain. He comes with great experience, not only in international cricket but also in the county game.

“He’s someone who I can have as support on the field for tactical decisions and he will also have a massive influence in the dressing room, particularly helping our younger guys.

“Alongside Gary, we’ve got a good group of senior players and for me to have different opinions, which I trust, will help me make the best decisions for the team.”
