Westfield set to relaunch his career with Frinton

First published in Sport by

FORMER Essex cricketer Mervyn Westfield is poised to make a dramatic return to action with Frinton.

The 25-year-old is currently banned for spot-fixing - an offence that led to him being jailed in 2012.

He served eight weeks of a four-month sentence at Belmarsh Prison but is still suspended from playing, or even training, with any club until April 1.

However, assuming the ban is lifted, if the player is deemed to have met all the guidelines laid out by the England and Wales Cricket Board, Westfield is set to become player-coach at ambitious Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship side Frinton.
