There has been a second departure from the County Ground in as many days.

Sussex County Cricket Club have parted company with Head Coach Mark Davis by mutual consent. The move comes following a difficult season for the club's first team.

Mark was part of the club's ‘golden era’ as both a player and coach, during which time the club won three first division County Championships and a number of one-day competitions.

He was appointed Head Coach in 2016 and had the task of establishing a new team to take forward into the next decade.

Davis said: “I have established a very strong squad including Jofra Archer, Stiaan van Zyl and Laurie Evans and given opportunity to a number of young players who will no doubt achieve great things in the future.

“The professional squad is very well set for the challenges ahead and I am confident these players will bring silverware to the club.

“I would like to thank all the players, support staff and coaches who supported me, as well as all the faithful Sussex supporters”.

The South African's departure from the County Ground comes a day after Batsman Chris Nash was granted his release from the final year of his contract in Hove.
