Former England cricketer Jonathan Trott on Friday (February 11) signed as the new assistant coach of the county team Warwickshire for the 2022 domestic season.
Trott, who retired from cricket in 2018 after winning five trophies with Birmingham and 52 Test and 62 List A caps for England, began working as a consultant for Warwickshire on a limited basis in 2021, according to the County Club.
“He has experienced success at every level of the game, he knows the club inside out and he is developing into an excellent coach. The players enjoy learning more from his experiences within the game but also in honing their skills for red and white-ball cricket,” said Warwickshire director of cricket Paul Farbrace.
“Jonathan loves Warwickshire, and he is relishing the opportunity to spend more time at Edgbaston, helping our players reach their potential. He is also very ambitious as a coach, so if we can support his development, it’s excellent for both parties” he added.
Trott pulled out of the assistant coach role of Yorkshire before signing as the assistant coach of Warwickshire. Last month, Jim Troughton, former Warwickshire teammate of Trott also dropped out in the latter stages of appointment and joined Surrey last month.
“It’s a great privilege to extend my time working as a coach for my home county. We’ve got an excellent set of players here and seeing them win the Championship at Edgbaston was an incredibly proud day,” Trott said in a statement.
“However, we want to build on this success. We’ve got a proud history of winning trophies at Warwickshire and I want to support the players and give them the best chance of achieving much more success in the future,” he added.
Trott is already with the Warwickshire team which is currently training for the upcoming County Championship which kickstarts from April 7.
