I hope Frank becomes a serious asset for you. At 25, he still has plenty of time to improve. For a time, I thought he would be our long-term number one and if the move goes through, I'm sure he will be more than capable of helping you push for an instant return to the Championship."
Thanks to Ollie for his words, most of which should certainly be comfort for those who may be wondering if anything's gone wrong for Fielding with his career, as on the face of it it's heading in the wrong direction. At 25 Fielding fits perfectly in the club and O'Driscoll's strategy and brings the average age of squad down even further.
There is a danger here. Potential hazards are present when you consider how such a young squad - especially at a club that has been in decline for four years - may manage in the event of a bad run or pressure piling on from ever-expectant fans. But the foundation stones have been laid, and a core is starting to form. In Fielding, Aden Flint and perhaps Derrick Williams, there is a triangle of youth forming at the heart of the team. Time will tell how they cope, but let's fact it, they can hardly do worse than the most recent incumbents, can they?
