Leicestershire chief executive Mike Siddall has announced he will stand down at the end of the season after four years in the role.

Siddall said Leicestershire's FLT20 triumph in 2011 was the highlight of his time at Grace Road, but he also cited various off-field achievements including securing the release of the city council covenant on the club's traditional home.

The removal of the covenant has enabled the cash-strapped club to attract new investment and boost revenue.

“When I came into the role in June 2010 it was only meant to be on a temporary basis but I realised how serious the club's financial situation was and felt that I could make a difference,” said Siddall.

"I am proud of what has been achieved during the last four years on an extremely tight budget.

"It is an appropriate time to pass on the running of the club to someone who can hopefully take this wonderful club to the next stage of its development."
