Hamilton-Brown free to discuss move
Surrey have confirmed Rory Hamilton-Brown has been given permission to speak to other clubs.
The 25-year-old led Surrey to the Clydesdale Bank 40 title and promotion from Division Two of the LV= County Championship last summer.
However, he stood down as captain at the Kia Oval last month, having taken time away from the game following the tragic death of close friend and team-mate Tom Maynard.
Hamilton-Brown is now understood to be seeking a fresh start and Surrey today issued a statement revealing interest in their former skipper, who is contracted until the end of 2013.
It read: “Surrey CCC can confirm they have received statements of interest from a number of counties with regards to the future of batsman Rory Hamilton-Brown.
“After discussions between the player and the coaching staff, Surrey have made the decision to allow Rory to enter into discussions with these counties with immediate effect.”
Surrey team director Chris Adams said: “Having had discussions with Rory, we have both agreed that he should be allowed permission to speak to other clubs so he can assess and consider the options for his future.”
