Yorkshire County Cricket Club has confirmed that there is an interim coaching and support team at Headingley to assist with the club’s pre-season preparations. Former England coach Tim Boone will lead the training backed by former England pacers Steve Harmison and Ryan Sidebottom. Additional coaching support will be provided by Cookie Patel, Paul Shaw, Martin Spite and Northern Diamonds Performance Coach Richard Waite. Additional support may be required depending on availability.
All the people who support are not applicants for any permanent coaching vacancies currently being recruited. The application deadline for the head coach role has now closed and the club will review applications in the coming days.
Yorkshire Cricket Managing Director Darren Gough said in an official release: “I am delighted that we have been able to secure interim support of the highest quality, among whom is many years of experience, and our players will benefit greatly from this. Vast knowledge and expertise.”
