Toby Bailey to Coach Highlanders
It was today confirmed that Toby Bailey would become the Highlanders coach for the 2014 season.
Bailey, who has been Scotland’s Lead Performance Analyst and Fielding Coach for the past two seasons, picks up the reigns from Neil MacRae who was appointed as Jersey coach at the end of last season.
The Pro Series, launched in 2013, was established to provide a stronger and more sustainable platform for the establishment of domestic professional cricket in Scotland.
The new coach will have the opportunity to get to know his new squad of players at a training camp at Moray school, Gordonstoun, before the season gets into full swing.
Commenting on the news Bailey said, “It is an honour to take on the Highlanders Head Coach position at such an exciting time for Scottish cricket. I know some of the players already from the Scotland squad and others from working with in the past.
I am really excited about the role, especially as it coincides with the first season of the inter-country competition. I am looking forward to getting to work with the team at our pre-season get away at Gordonstoun in a few weeks and having a successful season
It is clear that there is an abundance of talent in the squad and the region."
The 2014 fixtures will be announced in due course.
