Moores Rewarded With New Notts Deal

Nottinghamshire wicketkeeper Tom Moores says he “can’t thank the club enough” after signing a new three-year contract.

The 22-year-old has signed an improved deal that ties him to the club until the end of the 2021 season as Notts decided to act after his fine year with the gloves and bat.

Moores took 52 catches and scored 1,324 runs in all competitions and was also recently named the county’s player of the season.

Moores is delighted with the new deal and says he now wants to help Notts win trophies in the next couple of years.
“I can’t thank the club enough for the faith they have shown in me,” he said. “First giving me the gloves at the start of this season and then giving me a further three years off the back of that.

“As a team we have got some really exciting players and we want to be pushing for silverware in the next couple of seasons. Hopefully I can help with that and improve my own game.”

Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell says Moores deserved the extension and believes there is plenty more to come from him at Trent Bridge.

“Tom has had a fantastic season with both the gloves and the bat and we’re expecting big things for him in the future,” said Newell.

“We’re extremely pleased with how he took to the task but he knows there is plenty of hard work ahead of him to hit the ground running next year.

“He’s a quality young player so it is brilliant to have him in the squad for the next three seasons at least.”
