Matthew Peter Mott (born 3 October 1973 in Charleville, Queensland, Australia) is an Australian first-class cricket coach and a former first-class cricketer.

Playing career[edit]

Mott played for the Victorian Bushrangers and Queensland Bulls. He was part of the Australian Cricket Academy in Adelaide in 1995. A left-handed batsman, he made his first-class debut in 1994-95, playing for Queensland. He was in and out of the side but made a crucial 86 in Queensland's 1996-97 Sheffield Shield Final. He relocated to Victoria for the 1998-99 season and performed well, cementing his spot in the upper order. His first season included centuries against New South Wales and Western Australia. He made 841 first-class runs the following summer to help Victoria reach the final for the first time in nine years. A highlight of his career with Victoria was a 223 run opening partnership with Jason Arnberger.[1] He finished his 66-game career in 2004 with 3723 runs at 33.84 with 7 hundreds.[2]

Coaching career[edit]

Mott has been appointed coach of the New South Wales Blues for the 2007-08 after two years as assistant coach.[3] In his first season as coach, New South Wales won the Pura Cup.

He signed a three-year contract as the 1st XI coach of Glamorgan County Cricket Club on 14 January 2011. On 20 August 2013, it was announced that Mott would be leaving his role with Glamorgan after the end of the season.[4] He then led Glamorgan to the final of the 2013 Yorkshire Bank 40, where they lost to Nottinghamshire.
