Goodwin calls it a day
Murray Goodwin has announced he is to leave Sussex at the end of the season.
The 39-year-old’s contract runs out this winter and he will play his final game at Hove tomorrow when Sussex take on Somerset in the County Championship .
Goodwin’s Sussex career has been littered with achievement with his sheer volume of runs being a major factor in the club’s decade of success.
He was part of the team which won the County Championship in 2003, 2006, and 2007, the C & G Trophy in 2006 and the Pro40 in 2008 and 2009, along with the Twenty20 Cup – also in 2009 – to complete a full sweep.
With over 24,000 runs for Sussex in all formats, including nearly 14,500 first class runs with 48 centuries and an average approaching 50, Goodwin has been a genuine Sussex legend.
Cricket manager Mark Robinson said: “Murray is arguably the best ever batsman Sussex have had and he will be greatly missed and not only on the pitch, but in the dressing room as well by all those he has helped and supported in his time at the club. I would like to thank Murray for the help he has given me, and the great service he has given to this club.”
More in The Argus tomorrow.
