Proctor is not coming - for now!

We can now confirm that Ty Proctor will not be joining the Comets - for the start of the season at least!
This is due to the ongoing visa situation and the fact that Ty has not been out of the country for 12 clear months. As a consequence it has now been confirmed that Ty would have to enter the UK on the much more restrictive Tier 5 visa.
As a result, Ty has elected to wait until his 12 months away from the UK are up (in mid-May) and then, assuming that he can be accommodated, he will enter the UK on a Tier 2 visa.
We have been aware of this situation for a few days and have been working behind the scenes on securing a suitable replacement, which we intended to announce at the same time as the news of Ty's current situation.
However, following Ty's Tweet earlier today we felt that it was necessary to clarify the situation.
Whilst this is obviously disappointing for everyone concerned, especially with the start of the new season being just over a month away, the Comets management are currently working on securing a suitable replacement.
Hopefully we will be in a position to make an announcement in the near future.
