I knew nothing about the latter and had to look him up but he seems like the kind of seamer that Leicestershire should be looking to pick up with their limited resources.

Yes, I reckon they'll have no regrets about that signing.

He will probably join us, then we will have a contender for the worst pace attack in division one!

Gone to Derby I think. Anyway, Bumpy has gone on record as saying that Cox will be our first-choice keeper next year. To be honest, he's never been anything but poor when I have seen him.

Sweet. Great news, it's a shame for him that the move didn't work out but great to see him back at Sussex.

Yorkshire now on the verge of following up the signing of Brooks with that of Liam Plunkett. Not sure how well that'll go down with the Yorkshire fans (though some will at least be happy he was born in Yorkshire)...

He'll be needing a good taxi service.

Can't imagine he can carry his coffin on his bike! I thought cycling with a hockey stick bag at uni was bad!

Yorks signing Drunkett is a bad sign. Mainly because he's much better than our current reserve pace bowlers. Whatever happened to the Yorkshire bowling production line?

You can't call down the pit for a pace bowler when there are no pits left!

Sadly many towns have never recovered from what happened in the 1980s. Remember that they closed down much of South Yorkshire's steel industry around the same time.

I know, I grew up in one. Many more towns will not recover from the 13 years of labour fawning to the City either at the expense of real jobs, or suppression of wages via uncontrolled immigration or the lack of increasing infrastructure to support this. How far back do you want to take the blame game?

One day, people will reap the benefits of Fatcher's canny move to retain our coal reserves for the future

Aye, about a dozen people who are already loaded.

There was an article about Yorkshire mining on the One Show last night, specifically about pit ponies but plenty of humans featured too. None of the humans looked in any way capable of delivering 85mph outswingers on a decent length, so I reckon my point is valid.
