Sarah Taylor joins Sussex coaching ranks


Former England Women’s wicketkeeper to work with professional squads and pathway players

Sarah Taylor, the former England Women’s wicketkeeper, will join the Sussex coaching staff, working with the county’s men’s squad, for the upcoming season.

Taylor was widely regarded as one of the best keepers in the sport before she retired in 2019 at the age of 30 following long-term struggles with anxiety. Now she is stepping into relatively unfamiliar territory as a woman coaching professional sportsmen, working with the likes of Ben Brown and Phil Salt.

“We have a really talented group of keepers at Sussex who I am looking forward to working with immensely,” Taylor said. “I want to share my experience and expertise to help them get the most out of their game. I’m a big believer in keeping things simple and perfecting the basics so that players can enjoy and express themselves with the gloves.”
