Keir Worth,  head of coaching and performance at England Squash, is quitting to take over at British Shooting.

The 39- year-old will become performance director for British Shooting as they prepare for the 2016 Olympics in Rio, the one prize that eluded squash during Worth’s 11 years with the sport. He became high performance coach in 2006 and head of coaching performance in 2009.

His key achievements at England Squash include two world number one players, James Willsrop and Nick Matthew, a double world champion (Matthew), one world team championship, and three times world team runners-up medals. 
He is running down his contract notice with England SR while chief executive Nick Rider seeks a replacement.

British Shooting Chief Executive, Hamish McInnes said: “I am delighted to welcome Keir to the team at British Shooting. 

“We have some terrific athletes and coaches and I am sure Keir will bring the knowledge, expertise and energy to help bring the most out of them on the road to Rio and beyond.”
