Head Coach of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club is former England supremo Peter Moores. The past 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 he registered seven centuries, with a best of 185 against Cambridge University in 1996.
Moores 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.
Immensely popular within the game, Moores went on to captain Sussex towards the back end of his playing career and then had early success as coach by leading his old team to promotion as winners of Division Two of the county championship, a feat he will be eager to repeat during his tenure in charge at Trent Bridge.
