Sussex have appointed former Rugby Football Union director and England fly-half Rob Andrew as chief executive.

The 53-year-old, who resigned as the RFU’s director of professional rugby in April, succeeds Zac Toumazi.

He will begin his new role at Hove in January 2017.

“He has exceptional experience, both playing and administering sport, which will be of great help to our cricket management delivering success,” said Sussex chairman Jim May.
