‘I don’t feel like I can make a contribution’

QUITS: Alan Dawson

Alan Dawson resigns from his post at Cobras.

The Cape Cobras’ season is descending into chaos after convenor of selectors Alan Dawson quit on Tuesday.

The former Proteas seamer says he doesn’t feel that he can contribute in the current climate at the union, with senior players and coach Paul Adams at odds.

“I feel like no matter what team I select, it’s not going to make a difference. I don’t feel like I can make a contribution.

“The time has come to make proper cricket calls. I can’t work in that environment.”

“I’ve been involved for about two to three months and I’ve tried to find solutions and to ascertain where the real problem lies.

“Before I started I was told there were a few little issues between the players and the coach, but that was a lie.

“The worst thing about all of this is, is that they are doing Paul an injustice.

“Paul is my mate, and it’s tough for me to see him go through this thing, but he needs to start listening to advice from the right people.”

The winless Cobras host the Dolphins in Paarl in their fourth Sunfoil Series clash, starting today (10.30am).
