Ashley Giles Appointed Warwickshire Vice Captain

Ashley Giles has been appointed as Warwickshire’s vice-captain for the 2007 season.

Ashley will lend support to Heath Streak on the field and has great leadership qualities which he has often used during his time in the England camp. Although Ashley is still keen to win back his international place, the Club are delighted to have him back on board for time being as he brings so much experience into the dressing room.

Ashley was delighted with the appointment, “It will be a pleasure to support Streaky on the field and I am looking forward to playing for the Bears after being away for so long. We have a strong squad in place and I know we can be challenging for trophies this year. I hope to pay a big part in the success both in my performance and my leadership.”

A squad of 14 will leave from Gatwick on Thursday for a tour of Grenada which will consist of five competitive matches against Grenada.
