DAVID SEWARD has resigned after five seasons as the secretary of Surrey County Cricket Club. A spokesman at The Oval stressed that the resignation was in no way connected with the three ball-tampering incidents for which the county were handed a suspended pounds 1,000 fine by the Test and County Cricket Board last week.

YORKSHIRE and Durham have approached Warwickshire with a view to signing the all-rounder, Paul Smith, who is said to be 'unhappy' at being left out of several matches last season and becomes a free agent on 1 January.
