    Chris Schofield on the dole!

    How the mighty have fallen! A salient lesson for all you budding leggies out there!

    From today's Daily Mirror:

    Cricket Web's current Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    He's suing Lancashire for unfair dismissal, too






    Terrible shame One of the most talented leg spinners in the world left to rot in the Central Lancashire league ...

    Don't know about the in The World bit, but yes, a great shame... was looking like turning into a pretty decent bat, too.

    I'm really not in the mood for your masters, Sean - so you'll forgive my realism on the issue...

    I thought at one stage, he was touted as an England regular....

    With the lack of spin bowling depth around England i would be surprised if he doesn't get a contract of a team in the near future, probably not this season but after.

    He was never much good even at county level, they just hyped him up and fast tracked him into the England team because the selectors thought wrist spin was the answer and Schofield was the only young English legspinner at the time.

    Well i wonder what county level is then when these other spinners are still playing county cricket:
    R Dawson: 141 wkts @ 41.1
    G Batty: 196 @ 30.2
    I Blackwell: 156 @ 40.9
    G Swann: 290 @ 31.3
    G Keedy: 363 @ 32.7


    None of these records are that much better then Schofield's:
    C Schofield: 171 @ 31.3

    If these guys are county level then what makes u say Schofield isn't.

    The fact that he hardly ever bowled last year, even though playing games.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    it is really sad for someone to fall from grace, he will pick him self up though. i surpised that Lancashire have not offered him a coaching job or that another county picking up or that a central lancashire side making him a pro

    Wasn't that allot to do with the fact that they had Keedy in the side and they played allot of fast bowling all rounder, plus Hopper bowled allot of spin too. Anyway he didn't do too bad with the bat playing just as a batsmen in the ODs. I really would be surpised if he gains his confidence back in Central Lanshire Leagues he isn't playing county cricket in the near future.

    I agree Schofield has to use the central Lancashire league as a stepping stone again
