Worcestershire have launched their search to attract a new Head Coach and will leave “no stone unturned” in their efforts to appoint the right candidate but will not be rushed into what is a very important appointment.

CEO Tom Scott said the County are prepared to “go global” in their attempt to find the ideal person to lead the club through an exciting era in its history.

Whoever takes over the reins can look forward to overseeing Specsavers County Championship Division One cricket after promotion was gained this summer as Division Two champions.

They will have the opportunity to work with a young but now maturing squad with several years of first team experience under their belt – and the chance to take them onto the next stage in their development.

Add in working at one of the most iconic grounds in world cricket, and it all amounts to the dream job.

Tom Scott said: “The search has already began and I want our supporters and members to know we will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to bring the ideal new Head Coach to Worcestershire County Cricket Club. They will understand our values as an academy driven County focused on producing English qualified players to one day play for England”

“There is so much that is attractive about the job and we are prepared to undertake a global search to ensure the right person is put in place.

“The new Head Coach can look forward to County Championship Division One cricket and the chance to work with a very talented bunch of players.

“During the past two or three seasons they have developed into a highly competitive unit who I believe are capable of a sustained period of success.”

“I think any coach would welcome the opportunity to work with our Academy which has produced so many of those players and is something we will continue to invest in as a key part of the club’s future.”

“Only this week two of the bright prospects for the future of Worcestershire CCC, Dillon Pennington and Adam Finch, were named in England’s Under-19 World Cup squad.

“It is a dream job for any Coach who shares our values and we are determined to ensure the right person is put in place at Blackfinch New Road as soon as possible”
