Gloucestershire Lose Loaned In Bowlers

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club announce today that AJ Harris and David Wigley will both be returning to their Clubs, Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire respectively.

AJ Harris has a side strain which is not going to heal in time for him, or us, to get any real value out of his loan time with us.

David Wigley has been recalled by Northamptonshire to play in their game which starts tomorrow.

GCCC Chief Executive, Tom Richardson says “It is really disappointing to lose both these players. We found them because we felt that our bowling needed bolstering up. It is clearly not the result we were seeking and on this occasion we failed. However, the principle of signing players on loan remains a good one and we will continue to look again to find suitable reinforcements for part, or the whole, of the remaining season.”

GCCC Captain Jon Lewis added: “Whilst it is disappointing to lose these bowlers it does again give opportunity to those players in our own squad to stand up and be counted.”
