The Batting Guru

Following a successful 12 year playing career with the Bears as a Wicket keeper/batsman, 'Frosty' wasn't ready to leave the Bears behind and has since had spells on the ground staff and as a coach with the Academy and Development of Excellence squads.

Having originally called time on his playing career towards the end of the 2006 season, Tony returned from retirement when Tim Ambrose himself was called into the England squad in 2008. It proved to be an inspired comeback as he ended the season having scored 1003 runs in his 13 Championship games, averaging 83.58 and scoring a career best of 242 not out against Essex at Chelmsford.

After moving in to first team coaching responsibilities in 2013, Tony works with our Junior and Senior professionals to maximise their batting ability and performances.
