Woodworm, I thought Bell would've gone to a bigger name than that.
Maybe they've decided to try and conquer the market again (but I can't see them replicating the sales of 2005 somehow)

Thats a really strange move from Kooks, So their going to roll with Buttler as their marquee England player? It's a fantastic signing for Woodworm though!

Bell is gone.

Comptons test back performance means no3 won't be for him. And unsure where else he bats for England.

Carbs is done internationally to.


Ali? As much as many don't rate him, he seems to be sticking around the international seen and for some time. Can't believe look voluntarily released him. But what do I know.


Strange as kook have a decent range in the UK for the first time in a while. But who do they have to promote it here?
Buttler? Who else?

Add ABD to that internationally too. Kook without marquee players for England, Australia and South Africa moving forward. Gotta be a conscious decision.

You don't lose all of those players to better contracts if you want to keep them...

I was given a woodworm bat from a current county opener through a contact in September, they're fantastic bats

Bells deal expired with kook yesterday. His renegotiation period started just as he was dropped. He was offered a vastly reduced package with presumably a sliding scale if he got back in the team

I'd say Kook had all the cards and he's called their bluff. Bad move in my opinion. Woodworms been a bit of a graveyard brand for a while

Woodworm are local to Belly and he knows the guys there. Makes sense to me, despite not playing for England he's still a huge name to have on the books. This will help there sales massively

It's like anything though, if their retail bats are ordinary they still won't sell and from what I have seen they are very ordinary.

Given his age and being dropped money has to be the main driver in this

I've not seen any lower end ones for a while, I got very lucky with the one I was given
