Surrey have continued their post-season shake-up by releasing quick bowler Neil Saker and batsman Richard Clinton.
Saker, 24, joined in 2003 but managed just 18 first-class matches during an injury-hit stay. His best performance was 5 for 76 against Lancashire in 2007.
Clinton, the son of former Surrey batsman Graeme, made his debut 2004 after a late call-up to open the batting and made 73. However, in his 23-match career he only managed one century, against Kent in 2005.
"I'd like to thank both players on the club's behalf for their commitment and effort put in during their time here," said second team coach Nadeem Shahid. "Neil and Richard are talented and hard working cricketers and we wish them all the best for the future."
Managing director Gus Mackay added: "We were faced with an extremely difficult choice to make but you have to do what you think is best for the squad going forward. The decision was made in the best interests of the club and the players involved. They can now pursue better opportunities elsewhere and we can now focus on getting our squad right ahead of an extremely important year in 2009."
