As widely expected, Herschelle (Herman) Gibbs was today confirmed as Glamorgan's overseas player for 2009, and is contracted to play during July, August and September.
County stalwarts (got the anorak, drunk the flask) have to be very patient at this time of year. Next year's fixtures have been delayed due to uncertainty over Sri Lanka's early season tour, and there has been a distinct lack of news regarding new faces at Glamorgan.
At last though, we hear that Gibbs is on his way.
Unfortunately, it leaves more questions unanswered:
- Who will our overseas player be for April, May and June?
- Will we sign a Kolpak?
- Do we need a quick bowler?
- Are any domestic signings in the pipeline?
I hope that Matthew Maynard has got all of this in hand.
