Trott bids farewell to YMSC
Rodney Trott has officially been released from Young Men’s Social Club.
A club spokesman confirmed yesterday that the national team all-rounder has parted ways with the First Division club, thus fuelling speculation he could be headed back to childhood club Bailey’s Bay.
“Rodney requested a release and has been given a release,” the club spokesman said.
Trott was loaned out to Bay until the end of the 2011 cricket season after a chronic player shortage forced Social Club to withdraw from the Premier Division.
It is understood that it is now a requirement for all senior national team cricketers to be registered with Premier Division clubs.
“We were told that national cricketers have to play in the Super Six League (Premier Division),” the Social Club spokesman said.
Prior to being released, Trott had been playing an integral role behind the scenes helping the Pembroke club relaunch its senior cricket programme.
Assistant coach Charlie Marshall had even agreed to work closely with the player to help take some of the strain of coaching and playing off his shoulders during the upcoming season.
Trott’s departure is viewed as a crushing blow to Social Club’s future plans to rebuild their senior cricket programme.
“It is a blow because we have basically lost the premier spinner in the team not too mention a good all round person,” the club spokesman said. “Rodney was a big part of the team and it will affect us, but you have to go on.”
While Trott’s whereabouts has yet to be confirmed, Bay sources claim the player is set to return to Sea Breeze Oval on a permanent basis.
Bermuda Cricket Board’s (BCB) transfer deadline expires on March 30.
Trott, who recently represented Bermuda at the World Twenty20 qualifiers in Dubai, helped Bay reclaim the coveted Eastern Counties trophy with victory over Cleveland County at Sea Breeze Oval last summer.
