In light of the appointment of Sussex's first Director of Cricket in Keith Greenfield, Club Coach Carl Hopkinson will now assume the role of Academy Director.
Hopkinson, who played 184 matches across three formats for Sussex and was a key part of the 2006 County Championship-winning side, has been Club Coach at Hove since retiring from the game in 2009. He will continue his involvement within the first-team environment as a specialist fielding coach.
Sussex’s Chief Executive Zac Toumazi said, “We are thrilled to see Carl Hopkinson taking over from Keith to build on the excellent work he has done with the Academy. He can now bring his own style and expertise to help develop the next generation of Sussex’s players.”
