Simon says farewell

STAGS have lost the services of Simon Wystawnoha who has accepted a job in the Middle East.

Simon took over captaincy of the third team at a time of transition, with the team moving from the Halifax Sunday League into the Lancashire League 3rd teams division.

It was a tough ask going into the unknown, but Simon led the team superbly to a 7th overall finish in the table and a place in what would have beenĀ  the 3rd teams top division this season.

Following a shortened 2020 campaign many tributes were paid to Simon from players, parents of junior players, and club officials.

Simon said: “It’s been a pleasure to run the team and to make great friendships.

“I am extra proud of the number of players who have played in the third team in the last two years and are now playing, or have played, in the first team.

“I hope whoever takes over running the side continues to develop the young players and continues to play good tough cricket.

“I am sure next season will be a good one for the team as young players mature and other players return.”
