Coach the Coach Mentoring

Pauls primary experience as a player is batting and that is his core skill. However, you don't play and coach at the levels he has without picking up an enormous bank of knowledge.

A batsman or a batting allrounder looking to take his performances to the next level would be an ideal match for Paul.

More About Paul

Paul joined the staff at Trent Bridge in 1981 and that summer became the youngest player to represent the county in a major competitive game – a Sunday League fixture. In 1983 he established himself in the first XI and became the youngest batsman to hit a century for the County.

During his 21-year playing career with Nottinghamshire, Paul amassed 20,256 runs and was unlucky not to gain full international honours. He did represent England A when he toured the West Indies in 1991-92.

Paul started coaching in the early 1980's whilst a player at Notts CCC and his talent for passing on knowledge was instantly recognised both at county and international level. Subsequently, he went onto gain international experience working with Ireland and Canada prior to World Cup qualifiers. He has also coached England A and England Women and various age group levels.

Paul has coached at all levels including club cricket, head coach for the 1st X1 at Trent College and since 2018, he has worked for Leicestershire CCC where he works at all levels of the county, from the first team down through their age group pathway.
