Pick returns to Trent Bridge

Nottinghamshire have appointed Andy Pick as full-time bowling coach to finalise the coaching structure at Trent Bridge.

Pick spent 15 years with the county as a player and has since held coaching roles with Canada, the United States, England Under-19s and the ICC.

"I felt we needed a full-time bowling coach on board and we've been through an extensive recruitment process that has culminated in Andy Pick's appointment," said director of cricket Mick Newell.

"He's a very highly qualified coach with international experience and he knows the setup at Trent Bridge.

"He'll have broad responsibility to work with players at all stages of their development with a particular focus on the professional squad and the Academy."

Pick said: "This is a job that I really wanted and Nottinghamshire is the county I wanted to work with ahead of any other.

"I've always kept an eye on results here and I know most of the guys from some part-time coaching I've done in recent years but I'm looking forward to getting into it full-time."

The other change sees all-rounder Paul Franks installed as Second XI captain as he continues his work to get the ECB's level four coaching qualification.
