Newell Confirms Coaching Appointments

Featured News | 21st December 2009

Former Nottinghamshire players Mike Hendrick and Andy Afford have been appointed as part-time bowling coaches at Trent Bridge.

Hendrick, who will work with the club’s seam bowlers, played 30 Tests for England and previously held a similar position with Derbyshire. He enjoyed a distinguished three-year spell at Notts between 1982 and 1984 and was appointed Team Manager in 1992.

Afford played 170 first class fixtures for Nottinghamshire, his only major club, taking 468 wickets.

“We’ve got three relatively young spinners at the club in Graeme White, Samit Patel and Akhil Patel and I felt that it was important to appoint a coach who can give them the benefit of a wealth of experience and Andy fits that bill,” said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.

“These are part-time roles and I wanted to recruit local people with strong ties to the club and I’m very pleased with both appointments.

“Mike does a lot of work with the England age group sides and is very well respected in the game.”

Hendrick replaces Andy Pick who has taken on a role with the ICC in Canada.
