    Well done Warriors, they should have more of you in the Squad. Hind sight is painful.

    All the best to the guys on tour as well as the coaching staff and the selected umpire. Get some valuable overseas experience under your belts.

    A good number of young players, hopefully with the hunger to gel and improve and put on a good show for Bermuda come November.
