New South Wales Blues Head Coach Trent Johnston will leave his position after three years in charge of the team.

Cricket NSW Chief Executive Andrew Jones thanked Johnston for his time as head coach.

“Trent has worked diligently with the team over the past three years and has two state one-day competition titles to his credit,” Jones said.

“Unfortunately the results collectively and individually in the Sheffield Shield have been below expectations."

Cricket Performance Manager David Moore added to those sentiments.

“As a former Blues player Trent understands the high expectations on all players and staff in NSW cricket," Moore said.

“As a member of the Blues cricket family Trent will always be welcome at Cricket NSW, and we wish him every success.”

Johnston thanked the NSW players, coaching and support staff for their support over the past three years.

“It’s been a great experience to work with the playing group and I wish them all the best in the future,” Johnston said.

“To everyone at Cricket NSW thank you, especially the board and chief executive Andrew Jones, for the opportunity to coach NSW.

“I wish Cricket NSW every success,” he said.
