Three years in and shock horror 3 players leaving were signed while DoC was here!!.

One after 3 years - did anyone expect much more from Jim whatever his level of performance was going to be?

One as a fringe player and possible T20 specialist. Dom comes through (in the same time as DoC has been here?) may have had an effect plus out T20 performances.

Third player requests to leave - not sure he would have been released? But again Banton and Byrom coming through in the last few years (MM in charge) may also have made that a good move.

I have no problem with people not being happy with the DoC..... but please.... players leave..... some haven't done well... Dean Elgar has left.... in the DoC's 3 years.... and? Others are staying..... Davies?

It is what happens in cricket clubs. Significant leavers? Significant signings? Well that's opinion I suppose
