Worcestershire Release Five Players

Worcestershire CCC can announce that a number of players will not have their contracts renewed in 2008.

Roger Sillence, Dewald Nel and Stuart Wedge have not been offered new contracts for 2008. Similarly, summer scholarship players Will Gifford and Ed Foster will not be offered full playing contracts.

Contract negotiations regarding other players are ongoing and it is hoped that announcements will be made in the near future.

Director of Cricket, Steven Rhodes, says "This is in many ways the hardest time of the year when we have to make some tough decisions which affect the future of individuals. All have contributed in their own way to the Club's progress over the last few years and we wish them well in their future career, whatever that direction might be. We continue to develop young talent through our Academy and I am always on the look out for quality players from outside the County. I am very happy with our batting line up but we do need to find a couple of high quality seam bowlers."
