I didn't hear anyone at New Road yesterday suggesting that Mitchell was going anywhere fast. I suspect he'll want to put to bed the feeling that he wasn't good enough for Division 1 last time, but he'll almost certainly want to do that at Worcester. On the other hand, Worcestershire members are acutely conscious of the fact that Joe Clarke's contract is up at the end of next season. Some of them see staying up as an essential part of retaining his services.It's the end of a disappointing season now. Your thoughts on what we do for next season and beyond?
The oddest rumour I heard yesterday was that Andy Hodd was retiring at the end of the season. This came from a well-connected Gloucestershire member, but seemed to have no source.
