Bragg steps into retirement
Glamorgan batsman Will Bragg has announced his retirement following a battle with health issues over the last year.
The 31-year-old has been affected by health issues since the start of the 2017 campaign but he hasn’t been able to get to the bottom of the cause.
Bragg’s form has subsequently dipped after he enjoyed his most consistent season in 2016, hitting over 1,000 Championship runs as he was moved up to number three in the batting order.
The Welshman found his gametime in the County Championship heavily restricted in 2017 and he feels now is the right time to call time on his playing career.
Bragg said: "Last season was a frustrating one for me personally and I believe now is the right time for me to step away from the game.
"It's been a great experience to come through the age groups of Welsh Cricket and represent Glamorgan for over a decade.
"Last season was a frustrating one for me personally and I believe now is the right time for me to step away from the game and start focusing on building a new career in another area.
"I've always been proactive about my life away from the game, and while it may be odd not to be reporting back to training with the lads this winter I am enthused and excited by what the future holds for me.
"I'd like to thank all those people who have supported me over the years and I leave offering nothing but the best wishes for the club moving forward."
