Southern League Division Two cricket: Ballard School teacher Dave Steadman to skipper Sway CC first team
BOWLING all-rounder Dave Steadman is to skipper newly promoted Sway in Southern Premier Division Two next season.
The Ballard School sports teacher, who has taken over 60 SPL wickets in the past two years, takes over the captain’s armband from opening batsman Tim Noble, who had led the progressive New Forest village club for the past six years.
Noble, who now has a young family, steered Sway to two promotions in three seasons, initially out of the Hampshire League as runners-up to Havant in 2021, then, after finishing third the following year, to this past season’s Division Three championship.
He will still be available to open the batting next season.4
Sway opens their Southern League Division Three campaign on 4th May at Liphook & Ripsley before hosting New Milton in a derby.
