Former Surrey captain Rory Hamilton-Brown has been released by the county after accepting his request to terminate his contract.

The 25-year-old resigned the captaincy in August after compassionate leave following the death of team-mate Tom Maynard.

Surrey team director hailed the batsman, who scored over 4,000 runs in all competitions during his three year spell at the county.

“Achieving promotion and winning the CB40 trophy were both significant achievements and his weight of runs made a big contribution,” Adams said.

“Whilst at the club, he has also moved a lot closer to fulfilling his ambitions of playing on the International stage.

“The club has agreed to his request to leave so he can look to make a fresh start elsewhere.

“On a personal level I would like to wish Rory the best for the future and hope he is able to realise his potential at the highest level.”
