Off-spinner Jason Brown is to leave Nottinghamshire one year before the end of his contract to pursue first-team opportunities elsewhere.
He was signed in the 2008 close season from Northamptonshire but was hindered by a calf injury and his chances of representing Nottinghamshire have not been helped following the arrival of former Northamptonshire team-mate Graeme White.
“Jason was unfortunate to suffer injury at a time when he could have played a significant part in limited overs cricket but we feel that the time is right for him to move on given the signing of Graeme White,” said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.
“It has been a frustrating year for him but there was no lack of effort on his part and I’m sure he’ll find another county. We wish him every success for the future.”
“I’ve enjoyed my time at Trent Bridge but at this stage of my career I need to play regular cricket,” said Brown.
“I’m over my injury and I want to be in a position where I can begin next season in contention for a place in a county first team.”
Brown played five Pro40 matches, and two Friends Provident Trophy and Twenty20 Cup games for Nottinghamshire, taking three wickets, all in the Pro40 competition.
