Wes Durston has left Derbyshire by mutual consent.

The 36-year-old leaves the Club after making 218 appearances for Derbyshire since making his debut in 2010, scoring 7,628 runs across all formats.

The all-rounder featured in 75 first-class matches, scoring 3,620 runs at an average of 31, including five centuries, and claiming 95 wickets.

He was named the Club’s NatWest T20 Blast and Royal London One-Day Cup Captain during the 2015 season, and led the side for two seasons. In total, he made 143 limited overs appearances for the Club and scoring over 4,000 runs and claiming 75 wickets.

Cricket Advisory Director, Kevin Dean said: “Wes has been a tremendous player for Derbyshire and we would like to thank him for his efforts over the last seven seasons.

“He made many notable contributions down the years, no more than in our 2012 promotion winning season, but both parties feel that the time is now right to move on. We wish Wes all the very best for the future.”

Wes added: “I’d like to thank all the coaches, players, Members and supporters at the Club who have supported me throughout my seven seasons at Derbyshire.”
