Surrey have announced that Jon Lewis will leave the county at the end of the 2013 season.

The experienced seamer moved to the Oval after 17 years at Gloucestershire and helped his new county win promotion in the LV= County Championship last year.

He also played a part in steering Surrey to Friends Life t20 Finals Day, hitting the winning runs in a bad-tempered quarter-final against Somerset. However, they were beaten in the final at Edgbaston by Northamptonshire.

"Jon has been part of the Surrey staff since 2012 and in that time has been a model professional both on and off the field," Alec Stewart said.

"The club would like to thank Jon for his services and wish him the very best in the next stage of his career."

Lewis has made one Test appearance for England, taking a wicket with his third ball as he went on to record match figures of 3-122 against Sri Lanka at Trent Bridge back in 2006.

The 38-year-old has also featured in 13 one-dayers, picking up 18 wickets at an average of just under 28, and two Twenty20 fixtures for his country. His last international appearance came against Australia in Sydney over six years ago.

The Buckinghamshire-born bowler has taken over 800 first-class scalps and was a key part of a Gloucestershire side that claimed seven trophies in five seasons.
