Just a note to say how surprised I was to see that Peter Burgoyne has signed for Sussex and is playing for them in the game against Warwickshire today.
Maybe he felt that a move away from Derbyshire was the best way to resume his career, but when we are crying out for a spin bowler, it seems a little surprising.
Maybe there will be more on that in due course, but I wish the lad well. He is a very talented cricketer and has a lot to offer.
It is just a shame it is not going to be for Derbyshire...
Postscript - having considered this, and thought about the well-documented stress-related issues that led to Peter leaving in the first instance, I come to the conclusion that a move elsewhere for a fresh start was deemed best for both parties.
We don't miss much at Derbyshire these days, so I suspect that is the true reason.
