Still awaiting Nottinghamshire First Class Debut
Like most sons of famous fathers, Tom Moores knows that any references to him at the moment will inevitably point to a comparison with his dad, former England Head Coach Peter Moores.
Following in Peter’s footsteps, Tom combines wicketkeeping with his role as a top order batsman and having his dad around as a coaching consultant at Trent Bridge can only benefit the youngster.
Tom joined Notts for the 2015 season and put in some eye-catching performances. Five catches in an innings against Northants was ample demonstration of his tidy glovework but his season highlight came with the bat.
His 107 in the second eleven championship final, against Middlesex at Radlett, helped Notts clinch the title and also helped seal a spot on England Under 19s winter tour.
The attacking batsman had been given his first chance at that level against the Australians last summer and he kept his place for the tour to Sri Lanka and then on to Bangladesh, for the Under 19 World Cup.
With the likes of Chris Read, Brendan Taylor and Riki Wessels all paid up members of the wicketkeeping union, Tom knows that he faces obstacles in his ambition to force his way into Nottinghamshire’s first team but the trio have plenty of experience for the youngster to tap into and another season of progress should take him close to a first class debut.
