Flower becomes ECB Technical Director of Elite Coaching

Andy Flower has today been appointed as Technical Director of Elite Coaching by the England and Wales Cricket Board.



Flower stood down as England Team Director at the end of January after five years of unprecedented success and the ECB were keen to retain his services and his coaching knowledge.



Based at the National Cricket Performance Centre at Loughborough, Flower will have a wide-ranging role which will incorporate working with the next generation of England players and coaches as well as being charged with creating a leadership programme for young England players.



Paul Downton, Managing Director - England Cricket, said: “The ECB is delighted that we are able to retain a man of Andy Flower's experience and quality. His record over the last five years speaks for itself and the ECB and Andy are excited about the future. Not only will Andy work with both players and coaches but he will also look to enhance the relationship between the county coaches and the England set up. He will also work with Level 3 and 4 coaches in the ECB coaching structures.



“Andy will also build on the highly successful ECB Coach and Talent Development Programmes which have seen players such as Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, to name a few, graduate to England senior teams as well as work with a number of coaches from first-class counties who have been involved with the England Lions.



“The role will also involve researching the World’s Best Practice in Coaching and Performance, driving and implementing innovation in Coaching Practice and Technology, with and through the Fellowship of Elite Coaches and the National Cricket Performance Centre as well as recommending developments within ECB Coach Education and CPD Programmes.”



Andy Flower added: “I see this as a great opportunity for me as I start a new phase of my career. I am particularly excited about the chance to build and mould a leadership course which is not simply about captaincy but much more. This role offers me a chance to make a real contribution to the ability and character of England players and coaches in the years to come.”
