Profile

Richard Montgomerie made his debut for Northants in 1991, establishing himself as a fine opening batsman there after his graduation from Oxford University in 1994. He made the move south to Sussex in 1999, where he has scored runs consistently and been a member of the sides which won the County Championship in 2003 and 2007 and the C&G-Championship double in 2006. He has formed an extremely reliable opening partnership with the Zimbabwean Murray Goodwin, the highlight of which was an unbeaten partnership of 372 against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge in 2001. He retired after Sussex's third title at the end of 2007 to go into full-time teaching.
