Worcestershire: RAF's Graeme Cessford aims to add discipline

Graeme Cessford

Worcestershire's new signing Graeme Cessford says he will use his experience from the Royal Air Force to help bring discipline to New Road.

Bowler Cessford has taken a year out of serving as an RAF Corporal to play for the Division Two side.

"I'm hopefully going to bring some of my background to the club," the 29-year-old told BBC Hereford & Worcester.

"I can bring a bit of discipline, which [director of cricket] Steve Rhodes has asked me to do."

Cessford appeared four times for the club's second XI last season, and has previous experience of Minor Counties cricket with Northumberland.

And despite having no previous experience of the professional game, he says his team-mates have helped him settle in quickly at New Road after signing for the 2013 season.

"Everybody is really friendly down there which is one of the main things I noticed in the first few games I was playing, everyone was really helpful," he said.

"It will a be a tough decision next year to see what I will be doing next year."
