Nottinghamshire First-Class Debut: 23 August 2016 Scarborough, Yorkshire
Having been eased into the Nottinghamshire first team as Chris Read prepared to hang up his gloves, Tom Moores has established himself as a mainstay across all formats of the game.
The punchy left-handed batter and wicketkeeper has been a near ever-present in both red and white-ball matches since Read’s retirement, notching up close to 5,000 runs and 300 dismissals.
He sampled his first taste of county cricket with a short loan spell at Lancashire in early 2016, making his first-class debut against Durham at Southport. He returned to his parent county and made contributions of 23 and 41 on his first outing for Notts.
The former England Under 19 international had already shown his appetite for the big occasion by scoring a century to help Notts clinch the Second Eleven Championship in 2015.
His form as a hard-hitting left-handed batter has seen him produce devastating cameos when promoted up the order in T20 matches, and he has also delivered some telling blows in the longer format. Against Somerset at Taunton in 2018, he registered his maiden First-Class hundred, scoring 103. Two years later he added to it with an innings of 106 against Yorkshire, his first hundred at Trent Bridge.
Moores has already begun to compile a healthy stash of winner’s medals, appearing for the Outlaws in their T20 Blast triumphs in both 2017 and 2020 and forming part of the side which won Division Two of the County Championship in 2022.
Last summer he was a member of the Trent Rockets side that were successful in the second edition of The Hundred, and possesses a growing haul of medals in the global franchise game.
The young keeper has also toured India with the England Lions.
