The all-rounder left Edgbaston by mutual consent

Derbyshire have signed all-rounder Tim Groenewald from Warwickshire.

The South African-born 24-year-old, who is English-qualified, had one year remaining on his contract at Edgbaston but left the Bears by mutual consent.

Derbyshire head of cricket John Morris said: "Tim is an ambitious cricketer who adds depth to our seam attack as well as being dynamic with the bat.

"Groenewald is an excellent addition to our squad as we look forward to the 2009 season."

Groenewald played 17 first-class matches for Warwickshire, as well as making 48 appearances in one-day cricket in three seasons on the books at Edgbaston.
