Derbyshire batsmen released
Stephen Stubbings, Dan Birch and Dom Telo have been released by Derbyshire to talk to other counties, after a decision not to renew their contracts was made.
Birch and Telo didn't feature in any first-class matches this season, while Stubbings dropped out of the first team recently, having scored 296 runs in seven matches, at an average of 29.60.
"I would like to thank the three players for their efforts and contribution to Derbyshire County Cricket Club, especially Stephen Stubbings who has been a major contributor over the past 13 years," said John Morris, Derbyshire's head of cricket. It is time for us to move forward as a club and give opportunities within the second team to some of the talented young players we have coming through."
Stubbings is a two time winner of the Derbyshire supporters' club's Player-of-the-Year Award, and is currently in his 13th season at the County Ground having scored a total of 7557 run at an average of 31.88.
