Micahel Munday, the legspinner who shot to prominence when he took 8 for 55 against Nottinghamshire in 2007, has been released by Somerset.
Munday, 25, has represented England Under-19s and has played 31 first-class games since making his debut five years ago. A former Oxford blue, he has taken 86 wickets at 29.46 for Somerset but now must find a new club.
Alongside Munday, batsman Robin Lett and paceman David Stiff were also released. 23-year-old Lett captained the Second XI side this season but has only made two appearances for the senior side since scoring 50 on his first-class debut against Glamorgan in 2006. Stiff only joined the county last year and picked up 33 wickets in 12 first-class games but faces another move having already played for Kent, Leicestershire and Yorkshire.
In making the announcement Brian Rose, the Somerset director of cricket, said: "We would like to thank all three of these players for all that they have done since they have been with the county and wish them every success for the future."
