Ed Young-released by Glos last year Ed will be an excellent acquisition for the 1st X1 and offer his experience to our juniors in a coaching capacity too.
James Hendrickson-James is the current Cardiff UCCE keeper and will be the 1st X1 keeper this year following Tom Cullens enforced departure.
Jamie Hayes-on a gap year from New Zealand, Jamie will be the 2nd X1 Overseas player this year as well as helping with the juniors
