Trying to not set any specific targets found that demotivated me last year after a pretty productive 2016 season.

General aims...

Currently open the batting but become 5th bowler (Used to be a seamer/all rounder but also bowl some ok spin)
Push for promotion out of div won into the ECB pre league
Get the team over the line in at least one game (Always get close but have never walked off 80/90/100*)
Get a ton in any format!!!

I had very poor season last year year. I kept getting in and then making silly mistakes to get out. I just need give my self a bit more time at the crease and hopefully the results should come.

My bowling has come on in the last few years so hopefully I can continue that trend. I bowl gentle medium pace, I want to keep things tight and hopefully by doing that I can build pressure and pick some wickets up.

In terms of numbers, i will probably play 15 (out of 18) league games this year (due to Holiday and Weddings/Stag do's etc...) so 500 runs is always a good starting point. Score at least one 100, be involved in a 100 opening partnership, and that partnership average 40 at the end of the year.

I will definitely re-assess after a few games as i feel with the weather the pitches early season are going to be a bit dicey facing the new cherry  :( :o

My keeping will take care of itself.... it always does.

This season more than anything is going to be around adapting to the new league format of win/lose and 40 overs (was 44) - my game is not naturally suited to this (i am more Cook than Stokes) so i am going to have to think about how to bat in this.

We also have a new captain (my opening batting partner), so he is going to need a lot of support on the pitch as he has no captaincy experience at all, so have that to think about as well.

And lastly - fitness.... it's another season older for me and my ever falling apart body.... through winter nets this year i am definitely stiffer afterwards, so it will be interesting how the season goes fitness wise, and makes me more determined than ever to find a replacement 1st team keeper sooner rather than later - so i can retire to the slips!!

With my first season at the new club for the second half of the season I ended up taking a wicket every ten balls.

Last season I concentrated on getting the runs conceded down. That worked out ok.

This season I want to combine both while continuing the (every so slowly creeping) upwards of my batting average. Cant blame the willow.

This is the Custom Bowlers Forum right?

Just checked my bowling figures from last year so I know what to aim at. Average 10.12 with an Ec rate of 3.58.

My last season was after a break of almost a decade however was lucky to score two centuries, one in a friendly and other in a t20 game. Would be satisfied to have same form this year as well :)
Biggest goal will be to remain fit this year. My knee, shoulder and tennis elbow are acting up and threatening my 2018 season though

Considering we haven't had a dry week in London since October, I'm just looking forward to the painful 30* off 100 balls that I'm going to eke out in the first game of the season  :D
