Press day 2nd April 2019

You know the season isn't far away when the Press Day arrives.

First we start with the press conference, the top table from L/R CEO Andrew Cornish, Lewis Gregory, Tom Abell and Andy Hurry.

The players in the county championship kit.

I wondered if the players had got shy, only to realise it was so we could see their names and squad numbers. (most of them).

Players with members of the committee.

Good to see members of the staff getting their recognition for their hard work keeping the club going.

The players being given a pint of beer, soup would have been more suitable with the bitterly cold wind blowing today.

Now you know what they were drinking.

Some of the players displaying the bats made by Millichamp & Hall, our on site bat maker.

Thanks Clarence,, I don't know what made me do that, I knew who it was, I think I have been working on the photos far too long.

I will edit.

In the CC squad pics, does Byrom not look like van der Merve? Or is it my bad screen resolution?

If our players are half as good at cricket as they are at posing for photos we are in for a storming season ahead !

I noticed Ali like Trescothick is not in the one day squad.Is he available or just omitted, as not looked upon as a 50 over player.Renshaw did give us the extra option last year.

Not sure I'm entirely comfortable with jokey beer-swigging pictures at the official press day, but maybe I'm being old fashioned.

I notice Azhar Ali doesn't have to wear the Tribute logo on his shirt, which is good.

Noticed that we have changed kit supplier again, seems almost a bi-annual event now

With the last supplier the sizing didn't seem right to me, so fingers crossed
