Saxelby out for the season

Gloucestershire bowler Ian Saxelby has been ruled out for the season after suffering further problems with a right shoulder injury.

The troublesome injury forced the right-arm seamer to undergo surgery this week and Saxelby will now need to complete a rehabilitation programme, with the aim of returning to competitive cricket next year.

The 24-year-old needed major surgery on a similar problem in 2010, after dislocating his shoulder climbing out of a swimming pool the previous winter.

Saxelby made just one appearance for Gloucestershire this term, picking up two wickets against Cambridgeshire MCCU last month.
