Surrey v Warwickshire
If there really are no young players on the Club's books likely to make it as first class cricketers it begs the question who on earth will be playing for the first eleven in two years time.

Yes, our young players lack experience, but given a chance some of them will develop into useful first team players

You have been told to stop ramming down our throats the star qualities of these 2nd Xl.  players, you are obviously an expert on our2nds as you appear to watch every ball of every game, why don't you watch less of that and more of the1st team then you can compare and contrast and appreciate the gulf in class, 1more thing, Jim Troughton has been @the club a long time as player, captain and coach, if these players were as good as you think,  they would be given their chance and as also has been pointed out these coaches know more than us and that includes you believe it or not

Whilst it may get a bit tedious at times, we all ride our hobby horses on this site; and at least we are in no danger of forgetting that there are young players striving to make the transition.  Even in a flock of geese, there may be the occasional swan.


There is a massive gulf between club/2nds and 1st class. And as has previously been pointed out the 2nds have hardly been pulling up any trees in recent years. In the current set-up we only have - as far as I can see - 2 home-grown players in Chris Woakes and Ateeq Javed who are making semi-regular appearances.

This is a sad indictment of our coaching and academy organisation.

You are absolutely right to lament the lack of young players coming through.  The two Ians, Bell and Westwood, were also home-grown but they are from an earlier era.
