Ian Westwood
#1
Ian has been granted a Benefit in 2015.  I would say that he's just the sort of player the Benefit system was designed for - a loyal one-club player who was never going to be a star but has given his all for the Club, including a stint of captaincy.  Good luck to him!

Pete, that's given me an extra reason to support his benefit.

And yes, Terry I absolutely agree and just hope his benefit is well supported.

Always been very fond of Ian Westwood for the reasons given above. Never looks like he's giving anything less than his all.

His ton at Taunton this year was as good an innings as he can ever have played.

I was told yesterday that Ian is keen on becoming an umpire. He's officiating in some games at the moment. He has another year on his WCCC contract.

I would think that most players would welcome someone like Ian as an umpire - conscientious and honest

Ian Westwood retires with immediate effect:

Good luck to him - I thought that he still had a role in our current team, and we're going to struggle even more without him.

Something of a surprise to retire mid-season. So that is another opener we are short of this season.

While he might not have reached the heights he has, nevertheless, been a loyal and true Bear.

Strange timing, but if the mind was made up, no point prolonging it.

Good honest pro and thank him for all his years of service. Yet another opener down for the run in. When do we start auditioning for the role?

That's a shock. Remember his debut. Remember him coming off the field with a big smile on his face at stratford after hitting Shane Warne all over the place. Had a tough ride as captain, maybe that took its toll.

Very sorry to see him go, especially in such a strange way. What is going on?

I've been one his harshest critics over the years but you can't fault his dedication to the Warwickshire cause and for that he has my gratitude. All the best for a happy retirement and good luck for whatever you do in the future.

Isn't he lined up for the Umpires List ?

It's a shame Ian has decided to retire now, his leaving leaves the team significantly weaker, he was averaging over 36 in championship games this year, which for an opener in a struggling side is actually pretty good.

I hope he is successful is whatever he moves onto.
