    Buck's XI finally got promoted from my league, replaced by The Owls, who also look a fair bit better than me.

    Two pops. I'm not sure how to check my wages though. Finances still says the same amount, though obviously it should update for next week. Finally remembered to change my team name to what I originally meant it to be this off-season as well. 50,000 well spent.

    Wage updates weren't too bad. Watkins up to 87k from 63k, Downer 69k from 52k and Ashton 35k from 27k, no really big movements otherwise. Total wage bill is about 295k but could go up by a lot once I've bought in some new players.

    Two good pops and two training schemes end.

    Code:
    Alex Munroe - 22 yo, BT Rating=31,581
    RH Batsman, LF Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, lively
    A cautious player with abysmal leadership skills and mediocre experience.
    Stamina: 	competent 	Wicket Keeping: 	worthless
    Batting: 	wonderful 	Concentration: 	strong
    Bowling: 	worthless 	Consistency: 	respectable
    Fielding: 	feeble
    Code:
    Premalal Seneviratne - 21 yo, BT Rating=27,627
    RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, lively
    A destructive player with proficient leadership skills and feeble experience.
    Stamina: 	mediocre 	Wicket Keeping: 	worthless
    Batting: 	woeful 	Concentration: 	worthless
    Bowling: 	remarkable 	Consistency: 	strong
    Fielding: 	competent
    They'll both probs get stamina training in the future, but no more primary training.

    Wages jumped a fair bit:
    Code:
    Munroe: 	£8,777	to 	£13,212		(jump of 4435)
    Dylan: 		£4,007	to 	£10,031		(jump of 6024)
    Seneviratne: 	£5,233	to	£8,648		(jump of 3415)
    Sambrook: 	£4,822	to	£8,029		(jump of 3207)
    Keane:		£2,368	to	£6,780		(jump of 4412)
    Swart:		£2,971	to	£5,495		(jump of 2524)
    Holly:		£964	to	£1,908		(jump of 944)
    That's a total jump of 24961.

    Ouch.
    The one, the only CW Black

    Erk, i'll be struggling to get 5th or 6th in OD's this season. I really need to get another all-rounder but i'm afaird 2.5m won't be near enough to get a decent allrounder that would improve my team.

    Thinking of listing Walton for 600k? (higher/lower?)

    Some big jumps:

    Mullis -> £5,635
    Mulholland -> £9,732
    Bhutia -> £21,200
    Mcmillan -> £29,280
    Gray -> £34,959

    Looks like my wages will be up around £140k. Not that bad, considering Gray has stopped his training and Mcmillan is close.

    Only the one big jump for me...

    Gedye, 7979-> 18, 348
    and a myriad of other players who I've been training here and there.

    It's a very sad day at the SD XI training camp, where Pallav Singh, 34, Second highest wicket taker for the club, and captain for 94 matches has gone into voluntary retirement. His best figures were 5-45.

    Nope, I had a cup fixture when I logged on in the morning. By the time I went on again at school during my free period at about 9:30, it was gone.

    Edit: Turns out this was the same cup draw from last season, which I'm assuming is why it got taken off.

    Just the one pop today btw:

    That's a difference of approximately 19 K after the update, so that's not bad.

    This new season i will be in Division IV, which means that i will be lucky to be in the 5th place by the end of the season. Will need a very good batsmen, but with around 2mil in the bank to spare after my 1.6 mil savings for interest it will be a hard task.

    Got a decent league this season, four decent sides and three average sides but their not bots. Might hang around in Div 3 if things are fairly competitive.

    Woo, my first remarkable anything:

    1. Liam Bromby - 20 yo, BT Rating=39,031
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, invigorated
    A cautious player with woeful leadership skills and mediocre experience.
    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: quality
    Batting: strong Concentration: remarkable
    Bowling: abysmal Consistency: mediocre
    Fielding: worthless

    Looking forward to making my first ever ITS pull today (it is some time today we can make 'em, right?). Hoping for a respectable spin bowler; betting on a wicketkeeping fast bowler with abysmal stamina.

    Just the one pop today:

    11. Danny Woods (1274220)
    RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, superb batting form, strong bowling form, fresh
    A steady player with mediocre leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: worthless Concentration: mediocre
    Bowling: respectable Consistency: competent
    Fielding: abysmal

    Gone into a different league than the one that was predicted on the England sledging board. Not sure if I'll survive in this one, it looks like it'll be quite competitive at the bottom of the table but I'm probably the weakest team. Will be looking to profit from other teams getting distracted by FC games.

    I'll be selling Spencer in a couple of weeks if anyone is interested. I strongly suspect his stamina is high mediocre, so he should have competent stamina by the time I come to list him.
