Josh Poysden
#1
Surprised this hasn't been mentioned on here already (unless I've missed it?) - Josh Poysden has signed a 1 year contract with us. He showed some promising signs last season, good luck to him!

Delighted that Josh has a one year deal.
In the chances he had last season he gave us a different, attacking option with the ball, as well as giving us 100% effort in the field and with the bat.

Lets hope that he takes the chance this year to earn a longer deal with the club.

Josh makes his Warwickshire first class debut and gets his first first class wicket for the club.

Hopefully the first of many games and wickets.

Unfortunately it seems that he hasn't got his first first class wicket as the match against Durham MCCU has been deemed a non-first-class fixture! (According to this article anyway):

We appear to have used 12 players. Anybody know anything about Sukhjit Singh?

Shame for Josh anyway.

Sukjit Singh, known as Sol, is a left arm spinner that is part of the academy squad.

Jane may know more about him, as she is the expert on players in the 'age group' squads.

I interviewed Josh today for Deep Extra Cover. An interesting young man, very committed to the art of leg spin.

Not bad!

Actually very interesting, you covered a lot of ground & asked questions that allowed Josh to give good answers.

Perhaps you should interview more of the younger players on the circuit. I think Dolly and Leach from Worcs could be interesting.

I really hope he makes it in the professional game because he is so committed and hard-working.

It's a bit worrying that the article is all about limited overs cricket. I suppose the role of a leggie in limited overs is not as negative as that of a death seamer but I'd hate to see another promising bowler go the way Chris Woakes has gone with England - just required to bowl dot balls and no longer taking any wickets.

I recently came across an interview with Warwick Tidy, whom some of us oldies will remember from the 1970s. He had a good first season then faded away. He blamed it (without any whingeing) on over-coaching - always trying to adjust what he was doing rather than letting it come naturally. Maybe we should keep Josh out of the hands of the coaches.

Yes I do remember Warwick Tidy.
What's he doing now? See:

As for Josh, I share your concerns.  But I think he is very much his own man and will listen to coaches but then work things out for himself,  In Sydney grade cricket,as well as limited overs games, he will get the chance to play two day games played over two weekends.
Anyway, I wish him well and it will be interesting to follow his fortunes over the winter.  The quote in the interview I did with him from someone at GordonCC, his previous Sydney grade club, shows how highly they thought of him.

He could be on for the other seven when the game resumes next weekend.
