Calvin Dickinson
#1
I see we have a new Wicketkeeper playing for the Seconds today in the T20 game (opening the batting).  Calvin Dickinson, a 21 year old, English qualified (he went to school in Oxford), South African, who played a couple of First XI games for Hampshire last season (and on their pre-season West Indies tour).  He has also played for Oxford MCCU.  He has already played quite a few games for Hampshire Seconds this season.

Could this mean Mellor's stay at the club might be shortened ?

I guess Warwickshire have to plan ahead for the day when Tim Ambrose hangs up his gloves.

Mellor is being played just as a batsman in the Seconds game v Durham now (Dickinson keeping wicket).  I wonder if this is the way the management see him going forward ?

Mellor is no longer getting any game time for the Seconds - Dickinson keeping wicket in every match recently (with only moderate success so far).  I'd say Alex will be released at the end of the season.  Whether Dickinson is the answer to the conundrum, as to who will succeed Tim Ambrose, is too early to say.

Remind me, who have been the Reserve keepers lined up to 'succeed' Tim over the years ?! We've obviously had Alex recently and at some point before him there was Richard Johnson; but I have a feeling there was someone else between them (and possibly someone before RJ).  Can anyone enlighten me ?

PS I see Alex Mellor is still playing for the Seconds as a specialist batsman - he got a few runs in the Friendly with South Cheshire / North Staffordshire yesterday (in the middle order, not opening).  He has been playing with Dickinson as 'keeper.

Stuart Poynter played for us for a short while if my memory serves me right.

And who could possibly forget Denmark's own Freddie Klokker who played for the Bears in 2006?

Mellor is back playing as Keeper in the Seconds T20 game v Notts today - and no sign of Dickinson.  Perhaps (my !) reports of Alex's 'Keeping demise' have been greatly exaggerated!

Dickinson was on a 4 week trial/loan from Hampshire.

It's a sensible move by the coaching staff to continue to try other players who may improve the squad.
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.
There are GOOD Mugabe's
It is Warwickshire County Cricket Club!
