Willoughby departs Taunton
Somerset have confirmed Charl Willoughby is leaving the club by mutual consent.
The 36-year-old left-arm seamer, who joined Somerset from Leicestershire in 2006, claimed 347 wickets in 95 first-class matches at an average of 27.49.
Somerset director of cricket Brian Rose applauded the South African’s efforts during his five years at Taunton.
Rose said: “Charl has been a key member of our team since he joined us in 2006.
"His record in County Championship games, in particular, has been outstanding and his partnership in 2007 with Andrew Caddick was the major reason the team gained promotion that year and laid the foundation for future success.
“Charl has been a model professional in terms of preparation, fitness and attitude and has been an inspiration to our younger bowlers consistently advising them on their skills and technique.
“He will leave a great legacy. We wish him and his family all the best for the future. They will always find a home and the best of welcomes in Somerset.”
