Ross Whiteley leaves Derbyshire to take a New Road

Derbyshire all-rounder Ross Whiteley has left the Club by mutual consent and will join Worcestershire.

Head Coach Karl Krikken said: “Ross intends to pursue his career during the winter in Australia, a move which does not fit in with our plans for a full winter pre-season with Derbyshire.

“While we are disappointed to lose Ross, we have sufficient quality in the squad to make up for his departure and we wish Ross well in his future endeavors.”

Simon Storey, Chief Executive, said: “In the light of Ross’s request to be released from his contract, the Board has agreed that it would be in the best interests of Club and player that he leaves and a deal has been agreed for his immediate move to New Road.”

Whitely, who has endured an injury blighted season so far, signed a three-year deal with Derbyshire only last year.
