“The team is very similar to last season and everyone is up for the challenge of Premier cricket,” said Foan.

“The club is is very close to signing an overseas - more news to follow.”

Sandford effectively won promotion last season without an overseas player - quite a feat. The club recruited Ramesh Lakmal, but by late May he had returned home to Sri Lanka
