Ben Scott: Retired from professional cricket
Wicketkeeper Ben Scott has retired after being released by Worcestershire.
The 31-year-old arrived at New Road on loan from Middlesex in 2010 before signing permanently and he went on to make 33 first-class appearances for the Pears.
Ben Cox, 20, became first choice towards the end of the 2012 season as Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes looked to the future.
Leg break bowler Brett D'Oliveira, batsmen Matthew Pardoe and Neil Pinner and fast-medium bowler Chris Russell have all been offered new deals at Worcestershire.
Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes said: "All four of these youngsters have played their part for the first XI during a difficult season, we do expect them to kick-on and improve as players as their careers progress."
"Russell had an exceptional game against South Africa and we want him to show the same level of excellence going forward.
"The other three are products of our outstanding Academy set-up and have shown huge potential under the watchful eyes of Academy Director, Damian D'Oliveira."
