Nottinghamshire Head Coach Peter Moores has been presented with International Coaching Cap, commemorating his spells as England supremo from 2007-09 and 2014-15.
Moores’ two stints in international cricket bookended his time with Lancashire, where he won his third County Championship title as a coach.
As England Head Coach, Moores gave debuts to the likes of Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann and Ben Stokes, as well as enjoying Test Series triumphs against the West Indies, India and on two occasions against New Zealand.
Moores was presented with his cap by John Neal, the ECB’s Head of Coach Development.
“The caps are similar to ones we gave out to players a year or so ago, and we felt it was important to also recognise the impact coaches have had on English cricket,” said Neal.
“We’ve identified all of the international coaches who’ve led England in the men’s and women’s game, and we’ll commemorate their contributions with an event at Lord’s this summer.”
Moores admitted he was taken aback by the presentation of the cap, which took place at the Notts Sports Ground at Lady Bay.
“It was completely unexpected, but I love it,” said Moores.
“It’s great to get something to recognise what was a really special time.”
