Paul Grayson (Batting coach)

Squad no.

A left-arm spinning all-rounder who played for Yorkshire for five years at the start of his playing career, Grayson spent the majority of his time with Essex as a player and coach, playing two one-day internationals for England in 2000 and 2001, the first against South Africa and the second against Zimbabwe.

In his playing career, he scored over 12,000 runs across all forms and took exactly 350 wickets before his move into coaching; he was at Chelmsford between 2007 and 2015, winning the Friends Provident Trophy in 2008.

Ripon-born Grayson, the brother of football manager Simon, was appointed as head of cricket at Durham University in 2015 and joined the Yorkshire Diamonds women’s side as head coach at the start of 2017. He departed both jobs to take on the role of the White Rose men’s batting coach.
