Re: Signings - the war chest

As most county-to-county signings tend to be completed around July to October, and as it doesn't seem to be the Middlesex way to sign players from other counties, I am not expecting us to make any signings for our County Championship campaign.

If we indeed don’t make any signings, then it would come across as complacent, although it seems that our management have faith in a squad which is a mixture of players which contributed to the side winning the County Championship in 2016 but then having three successive disappointing campaigns, and a mixture of youngsters. I think that our management's argument is that they cannot identify anyone who is available and could improve our squad.

If we get promoted, then our management would probably claim that they were justified in showing faith in our current squad. However if our time in division two stretches into a fourth season, then questions would surely be asked about our lack of signings, and it may finally result in us making some signings ahead of our 2021 campaign.
