Cape Town - Proteas cricketer Colin Ingram has been named as the new captain of the Warriors franchise, replacing Davy Jacobs.

The Eastern Cape franchise on Tuesday said they felt it was “time for change” at the Warriors.

Ingram with his international experience had captained the team on a couple of occasions in the absence of Jacobs and has shown that he possesses all the attributes to lead the team into a new era.

Ingram has remained true to his roots and stayed with the Warriors after his national contract was not renewed last season.

John Ross-Smith, chairperson of the Warriors board, said they believed the hard working Ingram would naturally lead by example and assist the young Warriors team to bring back silverware to the Eastern Cape.

The Warriors board also thanked Jacobs for his massive contribution as captain over the past six years.

After appointing Jacobs as captain in 2008, it took him just two seasons to repay the faith when he guided his team to triumph in the Standard Bank Pro20 and the MTN40 in the summer of 2010/11, the first trophies ever won by the Eastern Cape franchise.
