Godleman signs one-year contract

Good news from the County Ground this morning, as Billy Godleman has signed a new, one-year contract. I'd suggested that this might be an appropriate thing to do a few days ago and am delighted to see it happen. The player has been in fine form in recent weeks and just needs that big score to cement his growing reputation and boost his own confidence still further. His partnership with Ben Slater has potential and I look forward to seeing how it develops in the course of the remainder of this year and during next summer. More from me later, with a look at tomorrow's game against Glamorgan at Cardiff

If the coaching staff have seen an improvement and feel further progression is seen as possible then fair enough. I would still like to see us be in the market for an opener with decent pedigree (who won't retire within a few weeks).

The bloke has a first class average of 28 after 85 matches which i would suggest is a fair testament to his ability. I can only assume the club has no openers lined up for next season. Why the blinkered optimism, most county league opening attacks wouldn't be alarmed.
