Nottinghamshire Head Coach Peter Moores has thanked the departing Ross Herridge for his off-the-field input into the Club’s recent success.
The Strength and Conditioning Coach is leaving the Club to take up a similar post with Australian side New South Wales, who are based at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Herridge started work at Trent Bridge in 2014, having previously worked in football for Reading FC, helping the Club secure promotion to the Premier League in 2011.
Last year, he played an important role in helping the Green and Golds compete successfully on all three fronts as they won both white ball trophies and also promotion back to Division One of the Specsavers County Championship.
“Any coach has to build a relationship with each player and find ways to improve performance, as he did so well.” Peter Moores
He leaves with the Club challenging strongly in the top flight of four-day cricket and hoping to mount a successful defence of the T20 (Vitality) Blast.
“I’m really pleased for Ross,” said Moores. “You’re always sad to lose someone who’s a big part of the team, but you’re always pleased when they choose to go because they have a big opportunity in front of them.
“Strength and Conditioning is now a huge part of professional sport and what you need is someone who understands sports people and has a flexibility about them to adapt programmes so they become performance and sport-related – and Ross had that ability.
“Any coach has to build a relationship with each player and find ways to improve performance, as he did so well. You train to get better as a player and to help not get injured, as you can’t play well if you’re not out there on the field, so he’s been an important part in those respects.”
