Brown and Symington Released

Durham County Cricket Club has released Simon Brown and Marc Symington.

Simon made his Durham debut in 1991 and celebrated his benefit year in 2001. Simon holds a number of records for Durham including most first class appearances for Durham (141), most first class wickets for Durham (518) and most first class wickets in a season (77) for Durham 1996. Simon has missed most of the 2001 and 2002 season due to injury, playing in only one Frizzell County Championship game this season.

Marc Symington made his Durham first class debut in 1998, having made his Sunday League debut in 1997 when playing for Durham Academy. Marc and Simon join James Brinkley and Jimmy Daley, who were released earlier in the season.

Durham Coach Martyn Moxon said: "Simon has been a great servant to Durham County Cricket Club, but unfortunately he has had a series of injuries over the last two seasons and as a result we have had to take the difficult decision to not renew his contract."

"Similarly, it was a difficult decision regarding Marc Symington, as he has played a significant amount of cricket for the First XI this season and has always given 100 per cent effort and commitment. I would like to wish them both every success in the future."
