Andy Moles has been voted Warwickshire's Greatest Player Never To Play For England after another bumper vote by Warwickshire Members and supporters.

Competition was fierce from a very strong short-list but the opening batsman who towered at the top of the Bears batting throughout the 80s and 90s came out on top with 32 per cent of the vote.

‘Moler’ scored 13,316 runs in 211 first-class matches for Warwickshire and a further 4,530 runs in 174 matches in one-day cricket.

An integral member of the team that won six trophies in three seasons in the mid-’90s, he ended his career with a first-class average of over 40. He is without doubt one of the best cricketers of all, not just for Warwickshire, not to play Test cricket.

Moler is a true Warwickshire legend who has gone on to lead a rich and illustrious coaching career around the world – and, in a Former Bears interview for the club website last year, he revealed that his coaching success owes much to his time with his beloved county.

“I owe so much to the people I played with and under and learned from at Warwickshire,” he said. “I learned so much from so many great people at Edgbaston, like Bob Woolmer and Bob Cottam and Neil Abberley who worked so hard for the Bears and had such a massive impact on so many of us. They gave me the tools to be a coach myself.”
