Toby Bailey takes up new Scotland coaching role
Cricket Scotland is pleased to announce that Toby Bailey has been handed a new role as National Performance Manager and Lead Fielding Coach.
His new remit will see him take responsibility for developing the next crop of international cricketers through a new National Performance Programme.
The programme is designed to accelerate the development of the very best young players aspiring towards international level and, ultimately, to break into the top players in the High Performance Programme, overseen by Head Coach Grant Bradburn.
Bailey’s new role will also see him continue his assistant coaching role with the national team and as the national lead coach for fielding and wicket keeping.
Commenting on his new role Bailey said 'I am looking forward to continuing the fantastic work done in the past - with young players such as Mark Watt, Gavin Main, Andrew Umeed and George Munsey all making their full debut over the past year.
This shows there is talent coming through the system. It is clear there is a lot more talent that will challenge for national team caps in the next few years - and I will use my experience of working with the National Team and the Highlanders to identify individuals who have the potential to play for Scotland and guide them to the next level.'
Performance Director Andy Tennant added, “Since joining us Toby has become a valued member of our performance coaching team. He has just completed the ECB Elite Coach Development Programme (UKCC 4) with flying colours and has gained valuable experience working with Head Coach Grant Bradburn with the national squad.
We are delighted to hand him this new challenge to complement his existing role and believe this is an ideal opportunity for him within the re-shaped performance coaching team.”
