“I definitely played my best cricket at Sussex and am very grateful to all the players, coaches and supporters who firstly welcomed me to the club, and then also helped bring the best out of my game.”

About Ed Joyce

Ed made his debut in county cricket as a Middlesex player in 1999 and played 227 games across all formats for the club making over 12,000 runs in the process, before moving to Sussex for the 2009 season. In eight seasons at the club, Ed made 8,348 runs from 113 first class matches and 3,105 runs in 79 list A matches. He also made 529 runs in T20 cricket for the club and was part of the squad that won both the T20 and 40 over league in 2009.

Ed captained the club with distinction for three seasons from 2012–2015 and led the side to third place in the first division of the championship in both 2013 and 2014.

Ed’s international career has taken a unique [think Boyd Rankin has also done this] route from playing for his native country, Ireland, before switching to England to try and realise his ambition of playing test cricket. He made the switch back to Ireland for the World Cup in 2011 and has been integral to the side since then. In all, Ed has played 74 ODIs for England and Ireland scoring 2,496 runs at an average of 38.40. He is still playing for the 2018 season for Ireland and with Ireland gaining test status recently, he hopes to be able to finally play a test match after nearly 20 years as a professional cricketer.
