“I turned professional over 40years ago and since then the process has become more competitive and being tweaked to only admits the very best. Our last three series to say the least have been very tough where only the best players scale.
“The effect of this has been a very vibrant younger generation of players that we believe will blossom soonest and uplift the game and bring honour to the association” he added.
