Hamilton-Brown returns to Surrey as Skipper

Surrey have signed Rory Hamilton-Brown as captain on a three-year contract.

The 22-year-old all-rounder learned his cricket at the Surrey Academy before spending the last two seasons at Sussex.

He told Surrey's website: "It's no exaggeration to say that returning to Surrey as captain is the dream of a lifetime for me personally as well as a massive honour and a huge responsibility."

He added: "I will make sure I fulfil the confidence that Surrey and specifically Chris Adams have shown in me and I am determined to help bring the club success in the future."
