Former England batsman Jonathan Trott has renewed his contract with Gunn & Moore (GM) after a hiatus of four years.

From being a school boy in South Africa in 2000, the 35-year-old has been in association with GM for 12 years and during this period he has amassed 12,343 runs at an average of 44.88 including 29 centuries and 60 fifties.

His association with GM proved even more successful for Trott when he moved to England as he scored 7,786 runs for Warwickshire averaging 46.07 and another 2,676 runs at international level at an average of just over 50 during this period.

In the 2010 home series for England against Pakistan, Trott was the leading run-scorer with 404 runs from four matches at an average of 67.33 which won him the man of the series award and in 2011 he was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year, ECB Cricketer of the Year and ICC Cricketer of the Year.

Trott said he is looking forward to work with GM again.

“I played some of my best cricket with GM bats and equipment and I am looking forward to renewing our successful partnership.”

Managing Director of Gunn & Moore, Peter Wright, is delighted with Trott renewing the contract with the company.

“We are delighted that Jonathan has decided to re-join Team GM and our previous relationship speaks for itself. He was always a joy to work with and we look forward to helping him with the next stage of his career.”
