I am sorry to hear of Will's departure due to ill health.
He had become our 'Mr Dependable' at no3,always battling and rarely giving his wicket away.
I will always remember his fighting knock at Cardiff a few years ago; he batted for all but the first ten minutes of the day , resisting all that Worcestershire could throw at him,(quite literally with Ajmal bowling over after over), with the pressure of a close attacking field set throughout. Ably supported by as I recall, Walters, Wallace. Cooke and Wagg, he saw Glam to the draw, finishing undefeated on 91, he never gave a sniff of a chance.
I suspect Will will look back on that innings as being the finest of his career, despite having compiled a few tons along the way. For me, he provided the most compelling and absorbing day's cricket I have ever witnessed, in more than 60 years of watching this wonderful game.
Thank you Will for your sterling service to Glamorgan cricket, and my very best wishes to you in your new career.
