Welch: Footitt still part of England's plans

MarkFootittGraeme Welch says Derbyshire paceman Mark Footitt remains part of England’s plan with a busy year of international cricket ahead.

Footitt was the country’s leading wicket taker in 2014 claiming 106 wickets in all competitions, the most by a Derbyshire bowler since Brian Jackson and Harold Rhodes in 1965.

Despite the left-arm paceman’s standout campaign and a successful England Performance Programme camp in December, the 29-year-old missed out on selection for the recent England Lions tour to South Africa.

Nevertheless, Elite Performance Director Welch says Footitt still remains in the England selectors’ thoughts.

Footitt: I'm not out of international reckoning

Mark FootittMark Footitt says he still has aspirations to play international cricket and believes another standout season for Derbyshire will be hard to ignore.

The 29-year-old secured a career-best 106 wickets across all formats in 2014 which earned him a place on the England Performance Programme in South Africa this December.

“It was obviously a disappointment to not get picked for the England Lions tour. I thought I probably should have gone,” Footitt said.
