Reece Topley will leave Sussex after rejecting a long-term contract offer from the club.
As a free agent and following back surgery, the 25-year-old was helped back to fitness by Sussex’s medical and coaching staff earlier this year before joining the county for the remainder of the 2019 season in July.
Despite a subsequent successful return to first-team action that saw the left-arm seamer play his first T20 Blast and Championship matches since the 2017 season, Reece has decided that his future lies elsewhere.
Sussex Cricket is disappointed not to have been able to convince Reece to resign for the club. Nevertheless, we would like to thank him for his contributions to the team during the season and to wish him well at his new club.
