Jeremy Nicholas Snape (born 27 April 1973) is an English cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and bowls right-arm offbreak. Outside of cricket, he has a Masters in Sports Psychology and has worked with a variety of national cricket teams.
His career started in 1991 at Northamptonshire. Though in the first season the side was victorious in the NatWest Trophy, the rest of his years in the county produced no further trophies, and he decided on a move to Gloucestershire for the beginning of the 1999 season. There he was a part of the treble-winning side of 2000 and double winning side of 2001.
Snape made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in 2001-02 and won the Man of the Match award in his first game: he played a further nine ODIs for England over the next year, despite leaving Gloucestershire at the end of the 2002 season and signing for Leicestershire. He was part of the Leicestershire side that won the Twenty20 Cup in August 2004.
After hardly playing in Leicestershire's 1st XI in 2005 it was something of a surprise that he was appointed captain for 2006 when HD Ackerman stood down. He had more success in Twenty 20 cricket where he guided Leicestershire to their second Twenty20 cup win in 3 years and was seen as a key innovator in the Twenty20 revolution.
In August 2007, Snape was recalled to the England squad for the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship. He is now considered a Twenty20 specialist due to his success with Leicestershire.
In June 2008, Snape announced his retirement from county cricket, to concentrate on his outside interests in performance psychology. He made his last appearance on 24 June in a Twenty20 match against Nottinghamshire. Fittingly, he contributed to the 5 run victory - scoring an unbeaten 11 and taking 1-10 off two overs.
Jeremy was rewarded with a testimonial year in 2008 in which he supported Operation Smile and the PCA Benevolent Fund.
After completing a Masters Degree in Sports Psychology, Jeremy founded Sporting Edge in 2005 which solves Business Challenges using the Winning Mindset from Sport.
