Warren takes the Bridge
Russell Warren
Warren was released because of personal differences
Nottinghamshire have bolstered their middle order with the signing of former Northants batsman Russell Warren.

Warren is approaching 6,000 first-class runs, has 10 first class centuries to his name and boasts a career average of 36.27.

He was demoted to the 2nd XI at Wantage Road and released at season's end because of personal differences within the team.


His arrival will increase competition for places
Notts coach Mick Newell
But the 31-year-old has been handed the chance to resurrect his career with a three-year deal, replacing the retired Paul Johnson at Trent Bridge.

"I think now's a good time to try and further my career and I'm delighted to make the switch to Notts," said Warren.

"Promotion to Division One in the County Championship helped me make up my mind because every cricketer wants to play at the top level.

"But I also believe there's a great squad at Notts and I wanted to be part of what looks like being a very exciting and successful time."

Notts' director of cricket Mick Newell believes Warren will prosper on the Trent Bridge track.

"He's been a pretty successful batsman for [Northants], scoring heavily down the years," Newell added.

"He has kept wicket in the past so will give us an added option should Chris Read get back into the England squad."
