Former Northants and Surrey all-rounder Matt Spriegel has retired, aged 27.

He averaged 22.65 in first-class games for Northants this year, but was released at the end of the season.

Since making his debut for Surrey in 2007, he amassed 4,098 runs across all formats.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank my team-mates, coaches and fans from Surrey and Northamptonshire for their support," he said in a statement.

"I have been fortunate enough to play with and against some of the best players in the world.

"I would like to thank my family and friends for their unwavering support through the highs and lows."

Spriegel hit the winning runs in Surrey's 2011 CB40 final victory, and was part of the Northants side that won the 2013 T20 competition.
