Davis announces retirement from Dev. League
Reports are circulating that aging paceman Heath Davis has announced his retirement from the top level of CWLand cricket.
Davis was reported as saying to the Pickford Express after his last game of grade cricket that, "I'm contributing nothing to the Black cause this season and have received plenty of feedback from my Black team mates that my presence in the dressing room is causing only division and disharmony"
Events have seemingly come to a head for the sidelined player after a show of petulance in Black's first match of the season, versus CW Red at the Pickford Reserve. As Amir ran in to bowl his first ball of the Black innings to Black Captain, Dan Smith, Davis shouted from the stands through a loudhailer, "Play MEEEEE, you ****!" and Smith immediately edged to the keeper. Since then, Davis has been banned from attending all home games and a request was made from the Black hierarchy to other CWLand teams to ban him from away games.
When pressed on the issue, Davis was said to be 'disappointed' not to get a game and at the signing of Mathew Smith in the off-season, further relegating him down the bowling pecking order. However, the competition for a first team place is not thought to be the reason behind the retirement of a mediocre Development League player. Davis has commented, off the record of course, that he didn't want to become a factor that would drag down the performance of the Black team, or become a pariah at the club. On the record, Davis was heard to say "I will show a great deal of interest in the forthcoming CW series against the touring Pakistani team. I'm sure a couple of players will exceed my match performance of 7-79 against the Pakistanis for the Chairman's XI on what appeared to be a decent batting surface, but I wonder which players will exceed that return."
Davis will continue to turn out for the Pickford Panthers in the Grade tournament for the remainder of the season and harbours hopes of playing another 20:20 tournament for Fardingham at the tail end of the season, but it is thought that he will announce his retirement from the game as a whole at the end of the year.
For avoidance of doubt, Davis will not be looking for another Development League contract stating only that once you've played for the Blacks you have no wish to play anywhere else. It is also thought that other Development League captains think he's a bit of a **** anyway and Davis' skills are not thought to be in demand.
Hah. Funniest retirement write up ever.
Articles on yourself. :thumbsdown:
Weak as. Not sure why you'd actually retire.
Was never actually serious about the pecking order stuff anyway.
If you were just going to hissy fit and retire you could have told me pre-season so I could sign another paceman.
No worries though, you're pretty hilarious etc
Smith was never going to play ahead of you in FC, you 'tard.
EDIT: And the only reason Donald and Goughy were picked ahead of you for the first part of the season was due to losing Borcich's handy lower order batting, and your general dudness with the willow.
