Surrey cricket boss quits post
Surrey CCC
Thompson's Surrey won three major trophies
Surrey's chairman of cricket Richard Thompson has stepped down from the post after three seasons.

Thompson, who guided Surrey to three major trophies, will be replaced on a short-term basis by former England manager Micky Stewart.

Thompson said: "I am reluctantly stepping down, as it is a great privilege to be chairman of cricket for the biggest club in the country.

"I recognise the job needs more time than I am currently able to offer."

During Thompson's term the team won the 2002 Frizzell County Championship, the 2003 National Cricket League Div 1 title and the inaugural Twenty20 Cup in 2003

He added: "I will continue to be heavily involved in the club and wish Micky, Steve Rixon and the players, the very best for the 2005 season."

David Stewart, chairman of Surrey County Cricket Club said: "Richard runs his own very successful business and he is finding it increasingly difficult to find the time required to properly fill his role in Surrey cricket."
