Lewry is one of the longest serving players at Sussex, having made his debut for the seaside club in 1994.
An accurate seam bowler, he has taken two first class hat-tricks, including one against Hampshire in 2001. He took seven wickets in the space of 14 balls and at one stage he had taken eight wickets for only 11 runs.
He has always enjoyed success at county level and he was selected for England A’s tour of Zimbabwe and South Africa in 1998-99.
He took 40 first class wickets in 2005, including four five-wicket hauls, and was a major part of Sussex coming third in the County Championship table despite missing the last six games with a groin injury.
He took a further 31 wickets for his county in the 2007 season as they claimed their second successive championship title, but did not play any one-day cricket.
He signed a new one-year contract at the end of 2008 after he took 41 wickets in the championship.
And after the 2009 season, which saw Sussex relegated from Division One of the LV= County Championship, Lewry retired.
