Paul Nixon

Ex-International Cricketer


Ex-International Cricketer, Paul Nixon is a former England and Leicestershire wicket-keeper batsman who retired from professional cricket in 2011, finishing on a high after claiming the T20 competition that year. Paul’s extensive and diverse sporting career has led him to be a pre-eminent cricket speaker for after dinner events.

The left-handed batsman, who also had a spell with Kent during his career, retired from International Cricket across all formats in 2007. Unfortunately for Nixon, his International wicket keeping career came during the prominence of both Jack Russell and Alec Stewart, two of England’s greatest ever wicket keepers. This limited the opportunities available to Nixon; however on the domestic scene he was dominant and helped Leicestershire CC to Championship titles in 1996 and 1998. Continually performing on the domestic stage has established Nixon as a top cricketer despite his lack of International exposure, something which isn’t achieved easily. A wonderful sports speaker, Paul has experienced sport at an elite level and has an extensive knowledge of how to achieve goals, realise ambitions and consistently perform to a world-class level.

Since retirement from the sport in 2011, Nixon has turned his attention to after dinner speaking, being sought after as a popular cricket speaker. His smooth and approachable nature has made him a favorite within the industry; a coherent cricket speaker who has had fought a constant battle throughout his career to receive the International recognition he deserves, Nixon has always been the player on the edge of the circle and of selection.

A model professional turned cricket after dinner speaker, Paul Nixon is the ideal addition to any event, and adds an element of familiarity and reliability to proceedings.
