Surrey say goodbye to Jordan
Chris Jordan has been released by Surrey after failing to nail down a place in the club’s first team.
The seam bowling all-rounder, 23, burst on to the scene at the back end of 2007 and has gone on to contribute 1,044 runs and 97 wickets across all forms during his time at the Kia Oval.
However, despite being tipped for a bright future in the game, Jordan has yet to fully live up to his billing.
Surrey team director Chris Adams said: “Chris has been with Surrey from the age of 17 and it’s unfortunate that he hasn’t been able to earn a regular place in the first team.
“He is at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing regular first-class cricket if he is to fulfil his ambitions in the game, therefore it is in his best interests that he looks at opportunities elsewhere.”
Jordan added: “I am grateful for all the opportunities I have been given with Surrey, will always remember my time at the club very fondly and wish them all success for the future.
“I remain a very ambitious cricketer and now very much look forward to continuing my cricketing career elsewhere.”
Jordan becomes the third player, after Matthew Spriegel and Tom Lancefield to leave Surrey in the last seven days, while former captain Rory Hamilton-Brown has been given permission to speak to other clubs.
