Jamie Atkins departs Sussex

3 Jan 2024

Sussex Cricket can today confirm the departure of seamer Jamie Atkins, who will now pursue a career outside of the professional game.

Atkins made his debut for Sussex at 18 years of age and went on to make 8 first-class and 1 List-A appearance for the Club, taking a total of 24 wickets.

Jamie said: “I’d like to thank Sussex for the 3 years I’ve had as a cricketer, helping me to fulfil a dream of mine since I was a kid.  

"I’m disappointed I didn’t push on from a good start in 2021, however I’ve had time to move on and start thinking about life after cricket.

"I’d like to thank the lads in the dressing room who made life as a professional cricketer a joy to be with.

"I’ll keep supporting the boys and staying in touch with the club, and I’m looking forward to seeing them push for promotion next year! GOSBTS.”

Sussex Head Coach, Paul Farbrace added: “We all wish Jamie well as he leaves the Club. He will always be welcome back at Hove. In my short term at the Club, he has been a joy to work with and has been an incredibly popular member of the squad.

"We have offered him any help and support that he needs as he develops a career away from Sussex Cricket.”

Everyone at Sussex Cricket would like to wish Jamie all the best in his future endeavours. GOSBTS
