Former Lowerhouse professional Peter “2metre” Fulton has been appointed as New Zealand’s batting coach after the World Cup ends in England in July.
“We’re delighted to have Pete come on board after the World Cup and are confident he will be a good fit for our environment,” New Zealand head coach Gary Stead said. “We had a thorough process and utilised our senior players to help assess all the candidates.
“Pete obviously has a good understanding of batting, but he also demonstrated a clear vision for helping our elite batsmen. He’s shown he has the coaching skills through his work with the New Zealand Under 19s and our winter training squads, while we know from his playing days that he will certainly add to our team culture.”
Peter was pro in the monumental 2004 season, and our first ever professional to win a trophy for the club. He made 857 league runs and took 40 league wickets.
Congratulations Peter, on behalf of everyone at the club.
