Sussex record-breaker Will Beer is leaving the club.

But he has not called time yet on his days in county cricket.

Beer is Sussex’s all-time leading wicket-taker in T20 cricket with 106 and helped them win the Vitality Blast in 2009.

He will make his final appearance for the club if, as expected, he is selected to face Hampshire at Hove this evening (6.30pm).

Beer, who still plays in the Sussex League for Horsham, made his Sussex debut 15 years ago and is open to fresh challenges elsewhere.

But he also has life after cricket taken care of.

He said: “I would like to explore any other potential opportunities in the game if there are any, but if there aren’t that’s just the way my cards are dealt.

“I have a career lined up for after cricket with a financial planning company based in Haywards Heath called Servo Private Wealth.

“I am currently going through my exams and hope to be qualified in 2023 if everything goes to plan.

“Hopefully I can use my connections in and around cricket to pick up some clients!

“I’m a Sussex boy through and through so I won’t be a stranger.

“I’ve loved my time here and will enjoy following from the sidelines with a beer in my hand, rather than a bat or ball!”
