Sussex have announced that Mark Davis has been appointed as club coach, succeeding Peter Moores who became director of the National Academy at the end of September.

Davis, 34, who was born in South Africa and has played for Sussex since 2001, takes over with immediate effect. "I'm thrilled to be able to continue with Sussex in this new position and I'm really looking forward to the new challenges it will bring," he said. "Coaching is something I'm very used to and I feel it is a natural progression in my career. I'm very excited to be a part of the club in this new coaching era and the 2006 season can't come soon enough!"

"This is a fantastic opportunity for Mark and a great coup for the club," Mark Robinson, Sussex's cricket manager, added. "He has all the qualities to make an outstanding coach; strength, honesty, integrity and an ability to communicate at all levels. His experience both within the professional game as a player and most recently by running his own coaching academy in South Africa will make him a vital member of the coaching team."
