Profile

Stephen Peters was a young player tipped for great things. Such predictions never quite bore fruit but his longevity in first-class cricket could not be questioned. That was summed up when he was appointed Northants' first-class captain ahead of the 2013 campaign and was also awarded a benefit. That captaincy came to grief in spectacular fashion as Northants, in their first season back in Division One, were relegated by a country mile in 2014. Peters was replaced as captain by Alex Wakely but as Northants embarked upon a clearout of senior players, he decided to stay put and see out the remaining year of his contract in red-ball cricket only.
