“Hampshire Cricket will tomorrow announce the new men’s First Team Manager.
Hampshire Cricket have today revealed that the new men’s First Team Manager is to be announced by the Club at 10am tomorrow.

After weeks of speculation as to who will come on board as the replacement for Craig White, who vacated the position of Head Coach in October, the wait is now almost over to find out who will be taking on key First Team management duties heading into the 2019 season and beyond.

The news will be available via our website http://www.ageasbowl.com/cricket, and the Hampshire Cricket social media channels below from 10am tomorrow – whilst we’ll also send you an email with all of the details so please keep your eyes peeled!”

** I’ll be painting in the studio today so unable to post anything until later, so whoever spots it first, please add the name in a Comment (cheers).

Adrian Birrel is the new Head Coach.

Comment by Stuart T

I thought Dimi was a sure bet and his resignation from Essex pointed that way. I wonder where he’s off to.

Comment by Stuart T

Well you were half right with the Adrian bit Stuart.

Good to have another South African on board isn’t it?

Comment by James

Interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of him. is he a Kolpak Koach?

Comment by pompeypop

Without checking carefully, I think we’ve only ever had two South African coaches (managers?), Jimmy Cook and Dale Benkenstein. We’ve had Aussies (briefly), West Indians, a ‘sort-of’ Kiwi, and a German. After Sam Staples, from 1949 for more than 40 years we had only ex-Hampshire players.

Thanks James – 75 wickets bowling leg-breaks. Maybe Mason will get a game in the Championship …
