Jason Pooley was a tall, upright left-hand opener who took a long time to break into the side but when he did he scored heavily for three seasons. In 1995, his first full summer, he made 1335 runs at 51.54 including five hundreds, earning him an A-team tour to Pakistan that winter. He was an ever-present in 1996 and 1997 but failed to recapture that form, although he remained a sound opener. He did not appear after 1998, when he was in effect a one-day specialist, becoming the second team coach in which role he continued to appear for the 2nd XI. He was also assistant coach to John Emburey.
