Wayne White released by Derbyshire as Welch bloods young guns

Wayne White has been released from his one-year deal by Derbyshire with immediate effect so the club can afford more opportunities to youngsters.

White returned to the Club from Lancashire ahead of the 2015 season on a one-year deal, The 29-year-old’s departure provides Elite Performance Director Graeme Welch (main photo) the opportunity to focus on the development of a plethora of young bowling talent within the Derbyshire dressing room.

“Wayne came here on a one-year contract and made some good contributions this summer including a couple of match winning performances,” said Welch. “With his contract up at the end of the summer and with a number of younger bowlers coming through, we’ve decided to part company a little earlier than anticipated. This gives Wayne a greater chance of securing a new contract and we wish him well for the future.”

White added: “I want to thank Derbyshire and the Members for their support. It’s been a pleasure to represent the Club but it is now time for a new challenge and I’m looking forward to continuing and improving in my career.”
