He scored almost 3,000 runs in 53 appearances for the club, scoring over 750 runs in 2016 and has been unregistered in case he wishes to find another club.

Robson said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Leicestershire County Cricket Club but have decided to take on a new challenge at this stage of my career.

“I wish the club all the very best for the rest of the season and beyond.”
