Lewis makes Sussex move

Sussex have signed veteran seamer Jon Lewis on a one-year contract.

The 38-year-old, who spent much of his career with Gloucestershire, was released by Surrey at the conclusion of this season.

Lewis, who has featured in one Test, 13 one-day internationals and two Twenty20s for England, boasts 832 first-class wickets.

He said: “I'm really excited to be joining Sussex, a club I have admired from a distance for a long time and I'm looking forward to a new challenge in my career.

“I am really confident that I can make valuable contributions to the team across all competitions. Sussex have a strong squad that in my opinion is close to winning more trophies and I want to help them achieve this.”

Professional cricket manager Mark Robinson added: “It is great news to have Jon on board for the 2014 season.

“He brings a wealth of experience and knowhow. He is still remarkably fit and ambitious as to what he wants to achieve in the game.

“Jon bowled really well for Surrey last year in the Twenty20 competition, so he will not only give increased competition in the four-day team, but will give us greater options in one-day cricket.”
