Surrey have honoured 20 of their greatest players by naming seats after them in the newly-rebuilt Vauxhall End at The Brit Oval.

The club will name the main entrance to the Vauxhall End the Alec Stewart Gate.

And the Long Room Bar in the Pavilion will be renamed the Ali Brown 268 Bar, after the batsman's record one-day innings against Glamorgan in 2002.

Current players to have seating blocks in their name include Martin Bicknell, Mark Butcher and Graham Thorpe.

And from yesteryear come the names of John Edrich, Percy Fender and former England captain Douglas Jardine.

The Vauxhall End is now housed within the newly-built OCS Stand, sponsored by a building services firm, which is on target to be completed by the end of May.

Meanwhile, the Sydney Room has been renamed the Micky Stewart Surrey Clubs Room.
