Northamptonshire fly out to Barbados today for their pre-season tour.
They`ll play a T20 knockout and one day game against their hosts as well as a two day match with Nottinghamshire.
Travelling with the squad for the first time is Tom Sole, Senior Academy Player. He takes the place of Rob Newton who is recovering from a groin injury.
Adam Rossington and Graeme White have returned from their winter seasons in Australia whilst Rory Kleinveldt and Richard Levi will re-group with the squad at the start of April.
As part of his ongoing rehabilitation, Monty Panesar will also be there.
His shoulder injury will prevent him from bowling but officials say the tour will offer him the chance to maintain his rehab as well as share his experiences of top-level cricket with younger members of the playing squad at key times during the trip.
