Essex County Cricket Club can announce that Tom Moore will leave the club at the end of the season.
Moore’s contract is due to expire at the end of the 2016 campaign and will not be renewed by the club.
The fast bowler played nine first-class matches for the club and took 18 wickets at an average of 35.66.
One of the highlights of his time with Essex was taking a double-wicket maiden against Australia last summer. Those wickets included the prized scalps of Chris Rogers and Michael Clarke with the latter departing first ball.
Moore featured again this season against Sussex at Colchester in the Specsavers County Championship and took 1-73 off his 24 overs which included the wicket of South African international David Wiese.
Chris Silverwood had only positive things to say about the young bowler, “Tom has always worked exceptionally hard for the club and I wish him all the best for the future”.
Everyone at the club thanks Tom for his contributions and wishes him well for the future.
