Leicestershire CCC: The team that has forgotten how to win
leicestershire-ccc-the-team-that-has-forgotten-how-to-win
Leicestershire have not won in the County Championship for two full seasons. They rounded off the 2014 campaign on Jordan Reed Womens Jersey the wrong end of a thrashing by Derbyshire, and last won a four-day game in September 2012 - a run of 32 games. Chief executive Mike Siddall leaves on Tuesday with no full-time replacement yet appointed, and Shiv Thakor, Nathan Buck and Josh Cobb - three of their best young players - are also moving on. The club, who are holding a cricket review next month and a members' forum on 15 October, issued a statement in which they: accepted that the situation needed to change said they were working "tirelessly to recruit new talent" regretted that a number of home-grown players have decided to leave, despite being offered good deals thanked members and supporters for their support, especially over the last two seasons during difficult times The first team's results were in sharp contrast to the second XI, who completed a treble this summer. So why are things seemingly going wrong on and off the field? Is it down to a shortage of ability, a lack of ambition , or a failure of leadership? Or is it a simple case of a lack of financial muscle? BBC Sport talked to past and present players, board members, and pundits and commentators to find out the reasons for the depressing run. "I'm very disappointed with what is happening http://www.redskinsonlineofficialstore.com/EARNEST-BYNER-JERSEY-CHEAP.html but not totally surprised. When the two divisions came in I always warned that counties like Leicestershire would struggle. "They've got a Premier League football team and one of the best rugby teams in the country and a very small base beyond the city of Leicester as far as sponsorship and commerce is concerned. "Once you are labelled second division, once you cannot win the title, what chance have you got of attracting interest, sponsorship and top players? Why would young players want to stay there? Look at James Vince at Hampshire. Lots of people would love to see him playing for England, but he's a second division player. "What Leicester needs is to really connect with the Asian community. That's why I hope Wasim Khan, who has been at Chance to Shine for a very long time and has done an excellent job, should come to Leicester as chief executive. He knows how to connect with people. "There is a huge Asian community here that loves its cricket but there is a disconnect. I did an evening in Leicester with Sunil Gavaskar, who is mobbed wherever he goes as the father of Indian cricket. Only 200 turned up in a theatre that seats getting on for 2,000. That was despite countless marketing efforts to get the word out on the streets of Leicester. "There is a disconnect between the cricket club and the Asian community here, which should be top priority." Former chairman Neil Davidson, who resigned in 2010 after seven years in charge at the club and is being linked with a return "A lot of people would say it is all about Evan Royster Nike Jerseys money but I don't think that is right. I don't think money is the issue. The issue comes down to management. "This is all about leadership at the top level. It comes down to leadership, strategy and management. "If you look at the track record in the last two or three years, it has been appalling. And on the field is a reflection of what happens off it. You have to spend your money wisely. Some money will be wasted and you have to try and manage injuries, but you have to have a core group of senior players. "When the club is in the state it is in, there has to be a signal that there is a massive change and we are heading in a different direction. And you start - from that point - to attract players in. "The board have to look at themselves and say 'here is a plan' and the members can say 'yes we support you'. Or if the board have no credible plan, then they have to step aside."
