Nottinghamshire Coach Paul Johnson has left the Club after a long and distinguished career as a player and coach following a restructuring of the coaching staff.

Johnson scored 20,256 first class runs and captained Nottinghamshire between 1996 and 1998.

He became the youngest player to represent Nottinghamshire in a competitive match when he made his debut in the Sunday League in 1981.

“Paul has been a tremendous ambassador for Nottinghamshire both on and off the field and his achievements will be very fondly remembered,” said Nottinghamshire Chairman Peter Wright.

“He can be extremely proud of what he has accomplished and we wish him every success in the future.”

Johnson retired from playing in 2002 but continued to serve as a member of the coaching staff.

“I’m leaving Trent Bridge with great memories and it will always hold a special place in my heart,” said Paul.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Committee, past and present, the members, as well as the coaching and office staff for their support and friendship over many years.

“I’ve played alongside, and coached, some of the greatest players ever to represent Nottinghamshire and I will always retain a great affinity for the team and for Trent Bridge.
