Head Coach of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club is past England supremo Peter Moores.
The former Worcestershire and Sussex player joined the Trent Bridge staff as a coaching consultant in June 2015 but made the step up after a re-shuffle amongst backroom staff in late 2016.
One of the most experienced coaches around, Moores is also unique in that he is the only one to lead two separate sides to the county championship title, having masterminded Sussex’s charge to the 2003 and 2004 crowns, before leading Lancashire to glory in 2011.
Moores has twice served as England’s Head Coach, leading the national side in all three formats of the game. His first stint lasted from April 2007 until early in 2009 and he returned to the ECB’s top coaching position for the 12-month period from April 2014.
As a wicketkeeper-batsman, Moores made his debut for Worcestershire in 1983 but made only 11 first class appearances before heading south to join Sussex ahead of the 1985 campaign.
At Hove, Moores enjoyed phenomenal success in a career that eventually realised 231 first class matches, with over 7,000 runs and 546 dismissals.
As a right-handed, middle order stroke-maker Moores scored seven centuries, with a best of 185 against Cambridge University in 1996.
He also played in 246 one-day contests, which brought a further 257 dismissals and a Lord’s appearance in the Final of the 1993 Nat Westminster Trophy. He also bagged a winners’ medal in South Africa, during a winter spent with Orange Free State.
Moores captained Sussex towards the back end of his playing career and then had early success as a coach by leading his old team to promotion as winners of Division Two of the County Championship.
During his first season in charge, he led Nottinghamshire back to the top flight after securing promotion from the second tier, as well as completing the ‘white ball double’ by lifting both the Royal London One-Day Cup and the NatWest T20 Blast.
