Opening batsman Scott Newman has made his exit from Surrey after nine years at The Brit Oval after falling out of favour with the new management.
Newman spent time on loan at Nottinghamshire this season when it became clear that Surrey would be letting him leave but Nottinghamshire decide not to take up their option on him and he now finds himself on the hunt for another club.
“I am pleased we were able to come to an arrangement with Scott and we wish him all the best," Surrey chief executive Gus Mackay told the club's website (www.surreycricket.com).
“I would also like to thank him for the runs he has contributed to numerous Surrey sides during his long stint at the Club," he added.
Newman, the first man to score a double-century in century in a first-class match for Surrey, played 90 matches for the Brit Oval side as well as 79 One-Day games and 39 Twenty20 matches as well.
