Tom Baxter admits he doesn’t know whether influential pair Ryan Croom and Ben Vella will return to Boston CC.

The duo played their part in the club’s promotion to the Lincs ECB Premier, but will now return to their native Australia.

But as the Mayflower men begin building for top flight cricket, captain Baxter hasn’t given up on calling upon their services again.

“They have been great for the club. Not only have they performed on the field but they know the game inside out,” he said.

“Croomy has come in and transformed our training sessions.

“It will depend on their commitments in Australia but I know that if they could, they would return.

“They’ve fitted into the squad brilliantly and brought so much to the team.”

As they head back to Georges River Cricket Club, they will take Boston’s Tom Poole with them.

The promising batsman will head Down Under to work on his game throughout the winter.

“Tom has had a great season in our Second XI and should be wanting to push into the First XI next season,” Baxter added.

“He’s going to have a head start on everyone this winter.”
