Peter Shields was the very able leader of a talented 1st XI that has filled the trophy cabinet at the club. Having taken over the captaincy from Jo Montgomery in 2001, he has had phenomenal success as measured by the hardware.  A talented batsman, he has been content to bat in the middle order and focus on his wicketkeeping and captaincy roles.

He has led the side to Senior Challenge Cup victories against North of Ireland in 2001, Waringstown in 2003, Harlequins in 2004 and Downpatrick in 2005 and has lifted the Senior League Championship Trophy in 2001, 2002, 2003 and in 2005.

As captain, he also had the honour of picking up the Ulster Cup in 2002 and the inaugural Twenty20 in 2005
