Gloucs let Young go

Gloucestershire have released left-arm spinner Ed Young.

The 24-year-old, a decent batsman with a first-class average of 33.84, is leaving due to competition for spinning places heightened by the permanent signing of Tom Smith from Middlesex.

Director of cricket John Bracewell told Gloucestershire’s website: “It is with some regret that Ed will leave Gloucestershire Cricket.

“For three years he has been a major game player in our short form cricket, but with the signing of Tom Smith and three young promising off-spinners on our books we are unable to carry any more.

“I am sure Ed’s cricketing career is not complete and we wish him well in its continuance.”
