KENT BOWLER CHRIS PENN RETIRES

Cricket

Chris Penn, the Kent bowler, has retired from the first-class game after failing to win a three-year battle to beat a shoulder injury. The 32-year- old, who has spent 14 years with the county, retired on medical advice after failing to shake off the injury which was sustained during a one- day match against Pakistan in 1992. He has been awarded a testimonial next summer.
