so... senior squad for next year

Smith, Clark, Bancroft, Lees, Steel, Richardson, Rushy, Wood, Salisbury, Weighell, Rimmington, Potts, Harte, Poynter,

plus Trevaskis, Coughlin, Davies, Burnham, Carse, Main, Pringle, Harding

and Stokes for the occasional game

have I missed anyone, and is it enough to challenge for a top 3 CC finish?

If the bowlers manage to stay fit I think it might be enough. But the chances of them doing that aren't great! Ben Raine is the other addition for next year.

so... senior squad for next year... the proper version

Smith, Clark, Bancroft, Lees, Steel, Richardson, Raine, Rushy, Wood, Salisbury, Weighell, Rimmington, Potts, Harte, Poynter,

plus Trevaskis, Coughlin, Davies, Burnham, Carse, Main, Pringle, Harding

and Stokes for the occasional game

I assume that the 'plus' players will be mostly for white ball stuff. Can we keep the main 15 fit enough for long enough?

Yep! I'm sure he'll make sure everyone is fit and any minor injuries quickly get cleared up.

Michael Jones who played a few both white and red ball games is also on a development contract. Not so sure if Main is still under contract; he played only intermittently for the 2nd last year only, it seemed, when we were short. Of the academy products Scott Steele and Ross Greenwell are rated highly. Importantly,also, we have to find captains for all formats.

Yep. Too risky to try and play through the problem.
