He'll do but I feel I'm overloaded with 16-year-olds now. Only a couple of training pops and none that were particularly interesting.

My 2 pulls had a combined salary of <850. Both are now seeking other employment.

Fired the youth, 16k and 600 wages. Some ok pops, but again nothing of note to report on!

Favourite pop of the week. He's going to give me a difficult decision when he turns 21 as I'm going to have 4 young spinners in my senior side.

Very nice, especially with the new youth set-up.
However, his tech is so low that I think I need to focus on either bowling, or perhaps batting (given his skills).
Thoughts?

Great batsman, worst week for nat level in terms of world cup but should be really nice under the new system.

I think you have a lot of options with this fella. 3 batting/tech pops would somewhat fix his tech and also give you a solid lower order batsman.. I think even AR would work if you alternate tech training until it has settled. Personally I'd struggle to ignore that bowling primary..

I'd just focus bowling and accept he's probably not going to be that great off the tech.

Well, he's on fielding for a few pops and hopefully his tech will increase a level.
Then I'll probably put him on AR and see when the primaries pop. After that, we'll see.

I think I'd be quite happy with him. Of course, a different type of bowler would be nice but he's still going to be a solid player. Put it this way, if the changes hadn't happened and this was a week 0 or 1 pull how would you feel about him?

Sure, standards are likely to increase a bit now but he's certainly going to be a useful club player and perhaps even a national quality player (he should be eligible for a world cup if we qualify, shouldn't he?).
