Nottinghamsire bowler Paul Coughlin has rejoined Durham after spending two years at Trent Bridge.
The Sunderland born all-rounder made his first class debut for Durham in 2012 spending five seasons at the Riverside prior to his switch to Notts but during an injury-hit time under Mick Newell and Peter Moores he only turned out ten times across all formats for the county.
The England Lion stated “Unfortunately, I suffered a couple of serious injuries while at Notts which meant I spent most of the last two years with the physio James Pipe and undergoing rehab with Liam Price (Strength and Conditioning Coach).”
“I would like to thank Mick, Peter and the club for their understanding. I am very grateful for all the work they did with me.”
Notts Coach Peter Moores stated “Paul’s time with us was blighted by injury to an extent that nobody could have predicted.”
“It was really unfortunate, of course for him because he was desperate to get going and also for the club because he was set to be a big signing for us, at an important time having lost a number of senior players at the back end of 2017.”
“The desire he showed to get back playing and the way he approached his rehab was second to none.”
“He became a hugely popular person within the group and someone everyone was desperate to see get the success his effort and talent deserved.”
“Hopefully now, back at Durham, he can put his injury woes behind him and play some good cricket for them.”
