Grand Tour lies ahead

I am looking forward to a whistle stop tour over the next few days.

Tomorrow I am in Southport, talking to the West Lancashire Cricket Society, then on Thursday it will be over to Liverpool, and a chat to the Merseyside Cricket Society.

From there it is down to God's Own County for a couple of nights, to catch up with parents and friends before the winter sets in.

I don't know if we'll hear anything about new signings to coincide with the membership information that comes out tomorrow, but I will take my trusty laptop with me, just in case.

Elsewhere today, Lancashire has announced the signing of James Faulkner for next summer's T20, when he will doubtless give very good value. He is a good cricketer with bat and ball and, in that format, a proven match-winner.

Just the sort of player that every county will be looking for in the weeks and months ahead, in fact.

Meanwhile Kent will also be looking for a new coach after parting company with Jimmy Adams. He did a good job there on fairly limited resources and his successor will have a tough act to follow.

They don't lack interest in the post, according to the BBC website and nor will Derbyshire. However the new roles will lie after the recruitment process, I am confident that we will have someone eminently capable in the various roles before too long.

With that, I say farewell and will catch up through the week as time permits.

No signings imminent then Peakfan?. We need them on board or memberships will fall rapidly.

Dunno mate. Maybe tomorrow which strategically would have made sense. But not if not that far down line...
