The Future

I have never posted on here before but do so on a Rugby forum. As a very long term Somerset supporter, probably 50+ years, I really do have concerns for the future.

It's highly probable we will be relegated this week and will the young talent come up trumps in lifting us out of Div 2 next season. The batting line up really does look fragile and surely it's necessary to recruit at least 2 proven batsmen, would they really want Div 2 though? Unless promotion is achieved next season I can only see us remaining in Div 2 for many years to come.

In terms of limited overs cricket I do think we were extremely lucky to qualify for both 1/4 finals really, especially T20. Again reinforcements are necessary in the form of 2 star overseas players available for all limited over games.

From what I see it's about time there is a overhaul of staff at the club as some people are simply not delivering the goods consistently and I think we all know who they are. So given we have some good youngsters signed up give them a chance in all forms of cricket, at the very least to build their confidence. Let's get out there and fill the gaps where there are known weakness rather than floundering towards an uncertain future.
