Jason Job

A cautious RH batsman and a cautious RFM bowler. He had proficient leadership skills and elite experience. He had no preference and no trait.

Job was signed to beef up the batting, in what was is the third highest transfer fee paid by Whamo. In each of his 3 full seasons with the club, he surpassed all expectations as he amassed over 2000 runs. With 8504 competitive runs for Whamo he is 9th leading run scorer of all time. At his best in season 22, he hit an incredible 2822 runs, including 10 centuries & 15 fifties. Not just the clubs finest batsmen, Job was also Club Captain. In his 3 seasons at the helm he led the team to a promotion in each of the 3 league formats, as well as the two best cup runs in the clubs history, elevating himself to legendary status for the club in the process.

The pressure to continue to meet the high standards he had set, seemed to weigh heavy on Jobs shoulders and this season his form dipped badly. He was stripped of the captaincy in a bid to help him re-find his form by concentrating purely on his batting. However visibly upset by his sacking as captain, he continued to struggle and in a make or break meeting it was decided that he should move on to pastures new. His final run for the club, was the winning run in the memorable FC victory versus butterfingers, after making his 31st & final century for the club in the first innings.

He will always be held in high esteem around Whamfield, his successes not being overshadowed by the down turn in his fortunes towards the end of his career. Whamo would like to wish Job all the best for his future career.
