NEW Plympton skipper Dan Robotham has lured some familiar faces back to Harewood House for this season’s assault on the A Division.
Batsman in the division won’t be too pleased to hear that Pakistani paceman Imran Ali Pasha is back for a third stint with the club.
Pasha first played for Plympton in 2006, taking 55 wickets, returning in 2011 to claim another 58.
In between there were stints with Bovey Tracey (2008) and Torquay (2010) when he bagged 48 and 59 wickets respectively.
Jeremy Williams, a former 1st XI captain, is making a comeback after several years out of the game, which could be bad news for bowlers if he gets back into the thick of it.
Williams was a rising star of the Devon U19 side in the late 1990s and played for the full county side 10 times between 1998-2003.
Injuries, the difficulties of studying in the Midlands and later work commitments stopped Williams developing the promise he showed when taking 154 off Cornwall as youngster.
Williams, now 37, has restocked the kit bag at great expense and been seen at nets ahead of the new season.
New to the club is Adam Sellick, a seamer who has played in the Worcester League, while Ross Farrer has left for a job in Cornwall is playing for Falmouth.
Robotham has his sights fixed on getting Plympton back into the Premier Division at the first attempt and ending the cycle of going up one year and down again a year or two after.
“I want us to go back up and stop yo-yoing between the top two divisions,” said Robotham.
Keep an eye out for young spinner Jacob Caunter, a youth system graduate Robotham rates highly.
