Lewis to assist Davis at Sussex

Former England bowler Jon Lewis has been appointed assistant head coach at Sussex.

Having finished his playing career at Hove in 2014, Lewis was initially appointed bowling coach but will now work under Mark Davis in what is a new-look coaching set-up for the county.

Having also represented Gloucestershire and Surrey, Lewis took a total of 849 wickets in 251 first-class matches and hopes to draw on this wealth of experience in his new coaching role.

He said: “I will be using my key strengths on a daily basis to help shape a winning side for Sussex, whilst continuing to develop the current bowling group, and future Sussex bowlers.

“I look forward to working closely with head coach Mark Davis and captain Luke Wright.”

Davis added: “It is brilliant to have Jon as my assistant coach. He has made massive strides as a coach over the last 18 months and is an integral part of how we operate Sussex cricket.”

Sussex, who are looking to return to Division One of the Specsavers County Championship at the first attempt this season, have also appointed Keith Greenfield as director of cricket, Carl Hopkinson as academy director, Murray Goodwin as batting coach and Jason Swift, who will combine taking charge of the second XI with being team analyst.
