For any fans interested, I have interviewed Mark Alleyne Gloucestershire skipper and Mark Ramprakash on how they rate Somerset and see the 2003 county season panning out.

Further interviwes with graeme hick, Jack Russell and Simon Jones are expected so watch the site....

As for the other thread regarding Cox, he got his new contract halfway through 2002 which surprised many. He has to have cracking 2003 to repay the faith somerset have shown in him with so many other tantalising prospects to choose from.
