Joe King announced through a post on Facebook last night (October 3rd) that he will be playing elsewhere next season, thus suspending his career at Corsham Cricket Club for whom he has played over a fifteen year period which saw him rise through the ranks to become a leading member of the 1st XI and a respected Minor Counties cricketer for Wiltshire CCC.
The Club would like to thank Joe for his service over the seasons and wish him well with his new Club (as yet unidentified).
Joe's resignation post was as follows ...
Some of you may have already heard but I wanted to tell you all, I am not going to be playing for Corsham next season. I just wanted to thank every everyone at the club for the past 15 years. I has been a real privilege playing for such a great club and my home team. However, I feel that now is the right time for me to move away from Corsham and face a new challenge. It’s not an official goodbye as I hope to be back to play one day as I have unfinished business here. I just feel that I personally need time away to rediscover the love of wearing the Wyvern again.
I would like to thank all the captains who I have had the privilege to play under and all the coaches I have had during my time here. A big thanks to all the supporters of the club and also all of my team mates who I have played with. I have so many great memories but also some regrets. It is hard leaving knowing i never got to win the league with the club and the year we got relegated still hurts. Thanks again for everything and I will be sure to see you all soon. All the best for the coming season.
