Adshead set for Worcester switch

Steve Adshead is looking at a move up the M5 to Worcestershire at the end of this season, after the Midlands county expressed their interest in the out-of-contract Gloucestershire gloveman.

Adshead will be expected to move to become the first-choice wicketkeeper at New Road, as Worcestershire are set to lose Steve Davis who has informed them he will not be signing a new contract.

His removal would see Steve Snell move back into the number one slot, enabling the young 'keepers to be given a more consistent chance at second team level and aid their development.

Neither of Gloucestershire's wicketkeepers could be described as outstanding with either bat or gloves as neither has brought any real consistency to their games in recent times; it appears that the intense competition has never brought the best out of either men, and Adshead will perhaps see a change of county as the best path to his continued development.
