Callington's Matt Robins has been formally elected as the 24th Cornwall cricket captain.

Robins, 24, succeeds the long serving Truro all-rounder Tom Sharp, who retired during last season.

Robins took over the reins last year as Cornwall finished seventh in the Western Division, with two wins, a draw and three defeats and his position was rubber stamped at last week's county annual meeting in Truro.

Other points from the meeting included:

* The club have announced that Shakil Ahmed will continue as the professional for the 2014 season.

* Cornwall’s preparation for the season again sees the annual training weekend in Jersey in mid April.

* There is a change of competition names for the 2014 season. They will be known in future as the ‘Unicorns Counties Championship’ and the ‘Unicorns Counties KO Trophy’.
