The principle for existing is to win trophies. We already develop players which end up being taken away if they do well, so the answer for success is not to keep prioritising development but a balance between that and signing players.
I am guessing - apologies to Martin if I'm wrong - that his point is Dizzy took over a fairly young squad. The next coach will have to oversee the development of their successors, at least in some cases. As for signings, the key to that is more about available funds than anything else, but the majority of the replacements will have to come from within. Rightly so in my view.

The bottom line is we need to sign replacements for Gale and Hodd, we also need to sign an overseas batsman. If Gale is the new coach then the only positive is that he can no longer fail for us with the bat.

If this fails then Moxon's job should be on the line.

The club must be seriously skint if they're hiring Gale as their coach. All rumours at the moment but I hope The Guardian have got it wrong

Does Gale have all the appropriate coaching qualifications?
I know he runs Procoach but that doesn't mean he himself has passed Level 4.
I cannot see the sense of this appointment myself since we then need to replace him as captain & as a batsman - whatever his failings this year.
