Sean Terry has opted to end his contract with Hampshire in an attempt to secure more regular playing time.
The batsman, son of Hampshire great Paul Terry, played in 11 first-class matches for the county and also made nine limited-over appearances.
But the 24-year-old did not feature again after scoring just one in the Division Two clash with Gloucestershire in July and spent the rest of last season in the second XI.
Terry averages 29.33 with the bat in his first-class career, with a top score of 62 against Sussex among his five fifties.
His contract was due to run until the end of the 2016 season, but a Hampshire statement read: "Sean performed well during his time at Hampshire but he has decided that he would now like to focus on securing more regular cricket elsewhere. We thank him for his efforts and wish him well for the future."
Terry's father said there was a chance his son could end up with another county or perhaps try out for Ireland.
He told the Hampshire Chronicle: "Sean's keen to pursue other options and hopefully something will come up, either with another county or maybe even with Ireland.
"There are options for him there as his mother [Bernadette] is Irish. She's from Dublin and we have family over there so he may go down that route. It's a tempting one."
