Stephen Moore

Born in South Africa to British parents, Moore moved to England when he was 18 and made his county debut for Worcestershire in 2003.

A compact opening batsman, he topped 1,000 first-class runs in the two subsequent seasons and helped the Royals to the NatWest Pro40 title in 2007.

It was the 2008 campaign, though, which saw Moore take the step up to prolific county performer, propelling Worcestershire into Division One of the County Championship with 1,288 runs, including five centuries, at an average of 53.66.

After representing the England Performance Programme and England Lions, Moore moved to Lancashire at the end of 2009 following Worcestershire’s relegation from Division One.

A badly dislocated shoulder cut short his first season at Old Trafford, but he responded superbly in 2011, once again passing the 1,000 mark in the championship as Lancashire secured a first outright title in 77 years.
