Farewell to Harry White

Yesterday, in welcoming the addition of Tom Wood and Charlie Macdonell onto the staff, I omitted to note the departure of Harry White.

I mentioned a day or two back that he was still on the club site, but I had heard he had been trialing elsewhere, which suggested his time at the club was drawing to an end.

There's a decent bowler in Harry and it may be that he is one of these later developers. There were occasions when it all came together and he looked like he could perhaps breakthrough, but that will now happen elsewhere, if it does at first-class level.

His only first-class game was in 2015, against the visiting Australians, when he took the wickets of Mitchell Marsh and Shane Watson, both to catches by Harvey Hosein. If your first-class appearances are going to be limited, that's probably the way to do it.

I wish him well in his future efforts. He still has time on his side, but at a club where young seam talent is proliferating, perhaps opportunity knocks elsewhere.

Good luck anyway, Harry.

Hoping the Club are preparing some exciting news to be announced before Memberships go on sale next week!!

Fingers crossed.

It would be a tactically astute thing to do Gareth. They don't miss many tricks and announcing a 'name' signing would be very sensible
If they have one of course!

We miss plenty of 'tricks' on the pitch where it matters!
