Champions; mostly home grown, unbelievable home running win; genuine contention for Bob Willis Cup.
Why would England want to select any of our players? Suspect Cookie thinks he was lucky playing for England ....and Essex.

Another splendid afternoon's cricket on tv and good win for Essex although what we would do without Simon Harmer doesn't bear thinking about. Would also state he has become a much better bowler and all rounder since he joined us and now may soon become a possible recruit for England?
Are we on our way to a Bob Willis trophy? Would be nice to go next to the Championship trophy.

Salary Cap
at 16:33 8 Aug 2020

At an "average" of £70,000 per annum I'm happy to advance myself for second string keeper position.
I have no agent nor image rights to damage the budget so could be a catch I suppose?

Don't think that's an insult...maybe Durham will disagree?

There is absolutely no doubt that we will be seeing plenty of the youngsters during the coming months. I have absolutely no issue with Mr Cowling. With him in control, as there can be no doubt he has full control, we will be one of the teams that survive the coming difficult season. Conversely I would be very concerned to see us spend money we obviously cant afford. Come season start there are going to be players looking for teams...not the other way round. I have every confidence in RC and the new manager to do their absolute best within the financial constraints that currently exist.
Cheer up Durham. I foresee a positive and exciting season coming up, whatever the squad may look like. We are the U's...what more could we ask?

Odd that Bopara didn't play for Sussex in the first round of games. Will he turn out against Essex?

Just watched the last afternoon's play Essex v Kent.
Essex cruising at lunch, Cookie going well.. then losing it midway through afternoon, then needing 40 to win with only two wickets left. Achieved the win without losing another wicket. Great afternoon on YouTube. Phew!

I take it you are not happy Peter!
This could be a brilliant year with no superstars getting grumpy; just new kids on the block that want to succeed for the new manager and the U's.
There....that's cheered you up hasn't it?

You will really miss not being able to shout "Oooo Miss Slocombe" Peter.
However, given the choice I would rather a trip to Harrogate next season...if we are able. Much posher that Nottingham!

Can't find fault in anything our Chairman does as without him where would we be?
Interesting to note his comments that the club needs to move in a different direction and consequently McG had to go. The fact that we have now appointed his no.2 means that either they didn't have a common policy together or Ball is now tuned in with the Chairman about a long term youth policy.
Only next season will give us the real story...maybe! At least we will still be afloat next season, how many teams may not be? I would like to think with a new direction within the club philosophy we may see a new direction in our movement towards Div.1.
Like or dislike Ball he needs and deserves our utmost respect and support in the next few months. Give him that chance to succeed guys, if he does, he will deserve it, and won't we all be happy then.

Oh, what a surprise!
I do really wish him well and hopefully not to be a clone of his predecessor.
