WORCESTERSHIRE CCC all-rounder Ross Whiteley and wicket-keeper Alex Milton will both leave the club when their contracts expire at the end of the current season.

33-year-old Whiteley was offered a new white ball contract but has decided to pursue a different career path, of which is not yet known.

He joined Worcestershire from Derbyshire mid-way through the 2013 season and was a member of the brilliant 2018 Vitality Blast winning side.

The news also comes fresh of Whiteley's heroics for Southern Brave in The Hundred final last month.

He scored 44 off just 19 balls to help his side to lifting the trophy at Lord's.

Worcestershire Cricket Steering Group Chairman, Paul Pridgeon, said: “Ross has decided to take his career forward in a different direction and is moving to pastures new.

“We thank him for his contributions and wish him well in the future.”

Ross Whiteley commented, “I have loved my time at Worcestershire. I’d like to thank all my team mates past and present and the wonderful supporters.

“I wish all at the Club the very best of fortune in the future”

Wicket-keeper batsman Milton has not been offered a new contract.

The 25-year-old scored a century on his County Championship debut versus Somerset at New Road in 2018 and made the last of his 14 first-class appearances against Gloucestershire in September 2019.
