James Tredwell retires from cricket

James Tredwell has announced his retirement from cricket.

The 36-year-old off-spinner has not played in a first team match for Kent this season due to a chronic shoulder problem.

Tredwell took 694 wickets for Kent in all formats of the game since he made his debut in 2000.

He was awarded his county cap in 2007 and, apart from a loan spell to Sussex in 2014, spent his entire career with the club.

He also represented England in all three forms of the game, playing two Tests, 45 ODIs and 17 T20s.

Tredwell told the club’s website: “I feel very grateful to have been able to represent both my county and my country during my career.

“I have had some great times on and off the cricket field but now it’s time for both me and the club to move on.

“I am looking forward to giving something back to the game I love, whether it be as an umpire or coach – I will see where each role takes me and I am excited by the challenge ahead.

“In closing though, I would like to take this opportunity to say that it has been an honour to play for Kent all these years and I would like to thank all staff, coaches, team mates and fans for their tremendous support over the years.”

Paul Downton, director of cricket at Kent said: “James has made an outstanding contribution to Kent in all formats throughout an incredibly successful career and I would like to congratulate him on all that he has achieved.

“His commitment and loyalty to the County is admired by team mates and supporters alike – he is also hugely respected by his fellow professionals.

“The dressing room will be a very different place without Treddy and I would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
