0 Anthony Parker unlikely to captain Shropshire on full-time basis

Shropshire cricket captain Anthony Parker today revealed he's unlikely to lead the team on a full-time basis.

The wicketkeeper, who plays his club cricket for Shrewsbury, appears to be only filling Richard Oliver's boots temporarily.

Parker is about to take up a new job as Deputy Head Groundsman at Wolves, which could have to come first.

He could relinquish the captaincy after the Minor Counties Championship Western Division home game against Herefordshire.

Play enters day two with a new-look side after their first win of the league campaign, after defeat to Wales earlier this month.

Parker said: "I have just got a new job and that's going to restrict my cricket. I am going to be Deputy Head Groundsman over at Wolves.

"It's a difficult situation, I am starting within the next few weeks so we will have to see.

I need to get stuck into the job. It's not just about Molineux, there's the training ground and things like that. The players are back for pre-season this week.

"It all depends on how the committee and how they want to steady the ship. It's a shame for me, if I am not able to properly take it on."
