Trevor Lionel Penney (born 12 June 1968 in Salisbury, Rhodesia) is a former cricketer who played for Warwickshire County Cricket Club, noted particularly for his fielding. He had a career average of almost 40 runs per innings. Whilst still playing, he worked as a specialist fielding coach with the English cricket team, and was one of the controversial substitute fielders used in the 2005 Ashes series, coming on for Simon Jones. Penney is the current fielding coach of the Indian cricket team and is currently working under Duncan Fletcher.

A right-handed occasional medium-pace bowler and batsman, he was chiefly recognised for his fielding, being described by The Guardian as 'one of the best fielders to have graced the county game'. [1].

On 22 September 2005 he announced his retirement from first class cricket to become an assistant coach of the Sri Lankan cricket team. On 14 May 2007, the WACA announced Penney's appointment as assistant coach of the Western Warriors under Tom Moody for the next three years.[1]
