FELIX Organ is hoping to captain Hampshire to many more trophies after leading the county to the Second Eleven Championship title.

The academy graduate skippered Hampshire to a 143-run victory over Leicestershire in last week’s SEC final at the Ageas Bowl, thanks largely to an unbeaten 143 from Fletcha Middleton, son of Hampshire batting coach Tony, and 5-65 from Ryan Stevenson in the final innings.

It is the county’s first SEC title since 2001.

Batting all-rounder Organ wants to lead Hampshire to more success.

“I aspire to captain Hampshire,” he said. “I know it’s a long way away though.

“I’ve been here since I was 10 and the dream was to play for the firsts and then captaining them. I have always captained at age-group sides for Hampshire from under 10s at to the academy.

“It was a great experience to captain players older than myself because trying to tell someone to do something when they have an extra 10 years in the game is not easy.

“It’s also great to have the likes of Barks [Keith Barker] to bounce ideas off to help lead the younger guys.

“You learn from playing in the firsts and seeing the fields people set and their plans.”

Hampshire II had a stunning season. Unbeaten throughout the three-day Championship, they only missed out on the T20 title by one run.

“We have a good young side which is really tight-knit but we also had a nice balance of some experience – which we all learnt from,” Organ said.

“There’s a lot of depth to Hampshire at the moment. We also had a few 15-year-olds from the academy coming in and doing well.

“I felt all the academy players are really good. Tom Prest is a really good batsman who will come up through the ranks. Fletcha scored a century in the final and Scott Currie is a really good bowler who seems like he has been playing forever despite only being 17.

“Hopefully they can all develop and move into the firsts at some point soon.”

Organ has already made the jump into the first team this season, and has made the opener’s spot home – having bedded in with a century and a 77 in his three Specsavers County Championship appearances.

He will continue to open with Ian Holland when Hampshire host Surrey for the next four days, but Rilee Rossouw has played his last red-ball match for the county and is now a T20 specialist.
