Right well the captain for my team has just stood down so the team requires a new skipper.

I would like to be skipper but I'm only 16 years old, although I think I could do a good job as I helped the previous skipper out this year. I have played the most games out of everyone in the team in 2008 and 2009 so playing all the games isn't an issue.

There's no obvious choices in the team to take over, I would like to but the thing is I don't know if people will take me seriously when I say I want to do it? What should I do?  I spoke to a first teamer who is heavily involved in the club and he said he would second me if I wanted to do it.

Looking for advice from the more experienced members here... but everyone feel free to post

I'm only 16 and I'm the VC of my club 2nd XI. Captained the side twice and won twice and they were are only 2 wins till yesterday :) So we have won like 3 out of 10.

I was due to take over the captaincy for the rest of the remaining 6 games this weekend as the skipper is playing football but I am doing the same, so I told the skipper who should captain the side for the rest of the season. The new one is only 17 years old himself.

Being captain is alot of hard work both on and off the field. It requires picking a team, telling them, arranging matches, sandwiches, drivers and a whole lot more. If you are serious and would like to captain the side, just say to a committee member before a meeting and ask them to bring it up. Or even write a short letter to them.
