Most recently Chris has been working as Head of Performance at Atavus in the USA who provide on-field programming and conditioning for players and coaches from beginners to the US National Team. Chris was involved in planning and delivering individual strength and training programmes incorporating recovery and lifestyle areas for enhanced performance.

Chris said of his appointment, “I am thrilled to be joining Northants , working with Barry and continuing the great work that David Sutton has done. Cricket is a game I love and played quite frequently in different age groups for Surrey. What attracted me to Northants is their passion, determination and despite their size, they are a successful team having reached two T20 finals in three years. Their ambitions match mine as I want to make a big impact in professional cricket. I am no stranger to Northampton and have a very strong working relationship with Marc Finney, Head of Strength & Conditioning at the Saints. This move obviously means relocating across the Atlantic for my family but we are all very excited and I can’t wait to get started.”
