​Nottinghamshire all-rounder Sam Wood has been released by the club after five years at Trent Bridge.

12th September 2016

Nottinghamshire all-rounder Sam Wood has been released by the club after five years at Trent Bridge.

Wood made 40 first team appearances since his debut in 2011, including nine white ball matches during the current campaign.

The 23-year-old’s most recent telling contribution was striking a decisive six in the final over victory over Lancashire Lightning in the NatWest T20 Blast group stage fixture back in June.

"Sam showed a lot of promise when he was coming through our Academy but couldn't nail down a consistent place in our first team," said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.

“He’s had his moments in one-day cricket, but with Samit Patel’s continued presence and the emergence of Matt Carter as a specialist off-spinner, it’s been difficult for him to earn those opportunities.

“As a talented cricketer who has always given his all for this club, everyone at Trent Bridge wishes Sam all the best for the future.”

Wood said on Twitter: “Would like to thank @TrentBridge for having me the past 5 years! Sad to go but looking forward to the opportunities ahead!”
