I've heard that Proctor has been told if he can find a job elsewhere that we will make up the difference in pay for the remainder of his contract, a couple of years ago 2nd team wkt keeper Cross couldn't find a County to match his 2nd team wages of a reputed £80k - no wonder.
It doesn't appear that any deal is agreed yet. If it was I would have expected him to be capped this morning. Alex Davies has just been capped in the Pavillion Long Room, the light outside must be bad.Red and rosy wrote: ↑Sat Sep 23, 2017 9:34 amThe club are negotiating with McLaren to come back next year although he is undecided as hehas a young family and is obviously hard to be away from them for 6 months.
He has been a very good signing although his bowling one the one day stuff wasn't the best.
Maybe make him captain if he does come back.
How much time does he spend in the North West?Red and rosy wrote: ↑Sat Sep 30, 2017 9:53 amButtler signed a 3 year contract last year.
Maynard was talking about wanting him back but he has now left. Steve Davies is a very fine wicket keeper batsman for them. Better in red ball cricket with bat and gloves so there would be the same issues as with our own Davies when Buttler is available.
Somerset probably need to put their resources into a regular championship batsman available all year.
All depends on whether Buttler is homesick as i dont know how settled he is up here.
