Murray Goodwin is among four more players that will leave Glamorgan at the end of the season.

Batsmen Goodwin, 41, and Gareth Rees are retiring from first-class cricket, the latter aged just 29.

Fellow batsmen Stewart Walters, 31, and Tom Lancefield, 23, are not having their contracts renewed.

Bowlers Mike Reed, 26, John Glover, 25, and Huw Waters, 27, all previously announced they would be leaving the Swalec Stadium.

Reed has suffered with injury problems and the other two are retiring.

Goodwin said in August he could be forced to leave, saying the county was "financially strapped."

Glamorgan chief executive Hugh Morris said: "On behalf of everyone at Glamorgan CCC, we thank them for their contribution to the club and wish them and their families well for the future."

Meanwhile, the county announced deals for seven players who have come through the club's development programme.

Will Owen, Andrew Salter, Dewi Penrhyn Jones, Kieran Bull, Jack Murphy, Jeremy Lawlor and Aneurin Donald have all signed new contracts.
