AFTER last season’s promotion near miss by six points, it’s not hard to work out where Thorverton want to go this season.

Skipper Graham White is unambiguous in his aim for the season, which is to get out of the B Division and back into the A.

“We did not lose a game in the second half of the season – not one – and one more win  in the first half would have been enough,” said White.

“I am not going to be shy about it: we want to be right up there this season and I am confident we will be.”

Likeable Aussie Kobi Griggs won’t be assisting Thorverton this season, but they have recruited some fast-bowling firepower in Adrianne Morrison.

White reckons there won’t be a quicker bowler in the B Division this season than the Queenslander.

Ottery will be the first to find out this Saturday when they visit Station Road.

Thorverton have not recruited heavily during the winter – or lost too many players either.

Blundell’s boy Christian Cabburn has switched to Heathcoat, which is the only departure of note.

White is hoping for big things from county age-group batsman Jamie Khan, who will be in the Devon U16s this season.

Khan will miss a few early season games due to school commitments,  but White hopes to see him in 13 or 14 matches after that.”
