Sussex sign England spinner on loan

The Argus: James Tredwell James Tredwell

Sussex have moved to halt their dip in form in the County Championship by signing England spinner James Tredwell.

Tredwell has joined on a month’s loan from Kent with the option of extending it if both clubs agree.

The 32-year-old will play in four-day cricket only with Kent retaining the right to recall him at any point.

Tredwell has played 52 limited overs internationals for England as well as a solitary Test against Bangladesh in 2010 but has lost his place in Kent’s Championship team this season.

He is set to make his debut in the division one clash with Yorkshire at Arundel Castle which begins tomorrow.

Tredwell said: “It’s a great opportunity for me to join up with a club like Sussex who I have admired for a long time throughout my career.

“I’ve played with a lot of the guys over the years and played age group cricket with the likes of Matt Prior and Carl Hopkinson so it’s an honour to join up with them again.

“I’m really looking forward to getting some red ball cricket under my belt.”

Tredwell is a proper spinner and it'll be very interesting to see how he does. Thankfully Robbo has now realised that neither Zaidi nor Beer are good enough or county cricket.

Zaidi, Beer, Liddle, Piolet, Hatchett, Hamilton Brown, Rippon can be added to that list, Arafat at the end, Lewis nearly 80, Jackosn, Hobden, Finch, Machan still to prove they are good enough.

Big job at Sussex

Woeful effort today. Never in the game from the time we won toss and decided to field.

Sure glad I did not renew my shark membership this year. £10 entry for kids today? Very expensive to watch such a dire performance!

Sorry to see Sussex in such a shambles this year. Losing Jordan to England was a blow but way too many players are underperforming. Haven't had a chance to watch Zaidi live yet but after winning a contract at the end of last season, he seems to have turned into a massive flop. Wright is playing cameo innings only and RHB never seems to have the patience to play himself in. Nash and Wells are also having a disappointing year.

Hope we have some young talent coming through because we could well be playing Second Division cricket next year.

Let's get behind the Sussex team instead of knocking them, easy to kick people when they are down.

Well this acquisition should strengthen the batting no end!
