County fans wanted!

Third Umpire are looking for county fans to compile season previews (last year we managed to muster 11). The county game attracts scandoulously little coverage in the mainstream media - and, with an almost constant stream of internationals until the end of the English season, this is unlikely to change - and we are looking to amend this by getting a collection of fans' previews!

Hopefully we will complete a full set, which will make for a fascinating read.

Please do any reviews in the following format, and email them to

2006 in a nutshell
A brief summary of last season

2007 Prospects
Assesment of the club's squad and expectations in all forms of the game. Please divide this into 'Battting', 'Bowling' and 'Team' (givinbg the probable Championship side).

Key Man
A few words on the man man.

Rising star
A few words on the young hopeful.

Captain & Coach
A few words on the club's management team.

If unsure, do have a look at the pieces already up:
Essex 2007 Preview
Hampshire 2007 Preview
Northants 2007 Preview
Surrey 2007 Preview
Yorkshire 2007 Preview

(For full county coverage, including reviews from last campaign, go to the county cricket section)

Any previews would be much appreciated, and they should attract much interest amongst fans. And of course feel free to email us if you are interested in contributing pieces on other cricketing topics.
