- Kadeer Ali signed a one year contract at Worcs.
- Hampshire released John Francis (batsman, 22, expected to join Somerset, the cheeky git),
- Alex Morris (26, bowler, great in 98 and 99 and took 51 wickets in 01, but has been unable to bowl for two years due to back injuries),
- and Iain Brunnschweiler (try typing that when you're drunk!) - 23 year old w/k, good player but couldn't force his way ahead of Nic Pothas after Adrian Aymes retired last year.
Is that another case of EU players hurting England's chances? Brunnschweiler is a talented young wicketkeeper which we have seen popping up at many counties in the last few years (Read, Foster, Wallace, Jones, Prior, Batty, Pipe, Pratt, etc), but could be denied a decetn shot at FC cricket at least, due to a South African playing on a Greek passport.
