Worcestershire CCC has released 31 year-old wicketkeeper Ben Scott. Scott joined the County on a loan-spell from Middlesex in 2010 and subsequently signed for Worcestershire.
Scott will be hanging up his gloves from professional cricket in order to pursue a career outside of the sport. During his three season spell with Worcestershire, Scott made 33 First Class appearances averaging 23.93 with the bat and claiming 60 catches behind the stumps. His highest score of 106 came in July’s LV= County Championship victory over the 2011 Champions Lancashire.
However, youngsters D’Oliveira, Pardoe, Pinner, and Russell have all secured contracts to remain at the Club.
Director of Cricket, Steve Rhodes, commented “All four of these youngsters have played their part for the First XI during a difficult season, we do expect them to kick-on and improve as players as their careers progress.
“Russell had an exceptional game against South Africa and we want him to show the same level of excellence going forward. The other three are products of our outstanding Academy set-up and have shown huge potential under the watchful eyes of Academy Director, Damian D’Oliveira.”
