Toby Bailey Joins Cricket Scotland Staff
Toby Bailey has been appointed as Scotland’s Lead Performance Analyst/Fielding Coach and begins his role with immediate effect.
Toby Bailey succeeds Tony Judd, who has taken up a new role in Darwin with the Northern Territory Institute of Sport.
Bailey will now work closely with national coach, Pete Steindl, in the High Performance department.
The 36 year-old from Kettering, England has extensive experience of first-class cricket, having represented Northamptonshire between 1996 and 2004 as a wicket-keeper - playing in 52 first-class games and 78 limited-overs matches, he also has a first-class century to his name.
Since finishing his playing career he has taken charge of the Argentinian cricket team, and more recently held the role of head coach at Carlton CC, he is also an ECB Level 3 coach.
On news of the announcement, Pete Steindl said, “Toby started working with the national team back in June as a specialist wicket-keeping coach. This role evolved to incorporate fielding, along with the performance analyst duties on the recent South Africa tour, during this time he showed a high level of professionalism and desire to add value to the experience we already have here.”
Toby Bailey commented, "I am delighted to be working with the national squad within the performance development system. There will be many challenges ahead but at the same time, I know that Performance Analysis and Fielding are areas which will make a real difference in the modern game. From working with the squad in South Africa it is clear that there is wealth of talent in the group. I'm really looking forward to working with them and Pete at such an exciting time for Scottish Cricket."
