CAPTAIN Daryl Mitchell believes the future remains bright at Worcestershire County Cricket Club despite being relegated to Division Two of the LV= County Championship.
The county finished bottom of the top flight after picking up just three victories and Mitchell admitted they missed some ‘golden opportunities’ to increase their win tally.
But the 31-year-old said the team will learn from those experiences and take a lot of positives from the 2015 campaign.
“Getting relegated was bitterly disappointing and I think we missed some golden opportunities to win matches, but I believe the future is bright,” said Mitchell.
“Tom Fell’s run tally has been fantastic while Joe Clarke has burst on to the scene, as has Ross Whiteley, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore has also emerged in red ball cricket.
“Looking back there were at least three games which we had massive opportunities to win but we slipped to defeat.
“It’s disappointing to go down to Division Two but there are a lot of positives we can take from the season as we have played some fantastic cricket at times and competed in 95 per cent of the matches.
“Unfortunately, critical moments have not gone our way but hopefully the lads can learn from that and jump on those opportunities next season.
“I’ve enjoyed skippering the club and feel very proud and honoured to be the captain. I hope I can carry on the duty next season.”
