    Thanks for the advice. I've got a couple of other 17 year old trainees on about 10,000 BTP. One is respectable/proficient with the bat and the others respectable/feeble with the bat, though strong wicketkeeper.

    I've only got the player I showed on the nets I had because, as you've said, he's virtually unplayable with his current stamina and he's one of my better players.

    The other problem I have at the moment is that I have a quality/competent bat who's 20 years old but in 'abysmal' form and can't buy a run. I can't seem to improve his form - it just keeps going down (he scored 1 century in the season just gone and his form went down!!)

    And I XXXXXXXXXX'd out the name just in case Richard could use the name to find out information about me from my battrick profile

    Just some quick reflections on Whenuapai's season.

    In the league we lost 5 of our first 8 games. Things were in turmoil as far as I was concerned. The mental damage this was causing was somewhat offset by our second best cup run as we managed to reach round 8. We should have made the quarters but we got done by one of those stupid collapses. Oh well. With the odds of my sides worst ever league record looking likely the side thought back really well in the latter stages of the season winning 5 of our last 6, including the last 4. We beat the eventual winners of II.4 during this run, the one defeat ironically the bottom sides only win of the season. In the end this meant that we matched our worst league season of 8 wins and 6 defeats. But for the first time ever we finished in the bottom half the table.

    I feel next season promises a lot on the one day front. The youths that came in half way into season 6 are now starting to hit form, and the side won't be so relient on Jason Duggan's magic and the increasingly unreliable Tel Lee.

    Code:
      Batting               Bowling
    1  Duggan   Exquisite/Exquisite   
    2  Fry      Proficient/Competent
    3  Janes    Quality/Superb
    4  Morrison Wonderful/Wonderful   Superb WK
    5  Hamshaw  Quality/Proficient    Proficient/Proficient LFM
    6  Lennon   Superb/Proficient
    7  Willetts Respectable/Woeful
    8  Vermaak  Respectable/competent Exceptional/Strong RS
    9  Sweeney  Woeful/Respectable    Remarkable/Superb RF
    10 Lee      Abysmal/Competent     Sensational/Quality LS
    11 Graham   Worthless/Proficient  Wonderful/Superb LM
    As for future development, I will probably stick with the same trainees for the upcoming season, before purchasing, or preferably pulling, a superstar NZ 17yo allrounder to replace the gradually ageing Hamshaw with. I am training Duggan as far as Masterful, but beyond that I'm not really sure. I also intend to train Vermaak for a couple more seasons as well.

    Just pulled this guy with 0 ITS

    Adrian Sheppard (1445454)
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, fresh
    A defensive player with competent leadership skills and worthless experience.

    Plays For: The Heath CC
    Nationality: England
    Age: 17 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 4,108
    Wages: 973 p/w

    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: worthless Concentration: worthless
    Bowling: respectable Consistency: worthless
    Fielding: woeful

    Just wondering what I should do with him? His wages suggest he's more than halfway to proficient, but obviously the fact that he has worthless consistency and is about to age is against him. Should I train him or stick him on the TM and hope for a bid?

    Just stick him on the market for 0, he is useless. Would have been an awesome pull first week with ITS in bowling though.

    Yeah, it's the first time I've ever had anything better than a woeful primary from the YA so far (I haven't got my academy sorted yet, so haven't stored up any ITS) - shame it couldn't have happened a few weeks later.

    I was just looking through my BT squad, and I was wondering, how many original squad members or YPs from your own club, do people still have in their first team?

    I'm guessing when you reach Adam's stature, having a YP of your own play for you is a pretty impossible task?

    I've got no one from my starting squad, and only three players (Griffin, Canning, Tedstone) are YPs.

    Nibbs did it, so i may aswell too.

    The team will be hoping for a top 3 spot in the league, training will stay the same, unless i get an insane youth pull, then i will have to rethink. Bowling will start to look nice end of next season. Aiming to promote end of season 9, putting me in III season 10. I think its doable.
