For­mer Eng­land spin bowler Ash­ley Giles was ap­pointed as War­wick­shire’s sport di­rec­tor yesterday af­ter quit­ting his role as Lan­cashire coach. Giles had served as War­wick­shire di­rec­tor of cricket be­tween 2007 and 2012 and he re­turns to Edg­bas­ton in a more wide-rang­ing role. The 43-year-old will over­see all the English county’s pro­fes­sional teams as well as the academy, high per­for­mance and de­vel­op­ment of ex­cel­lence pro­grammes. “The new role at Edg­bas­ton is a great op­por­tu­nity and I am de­lighted to re­turn to War­wick­shire,” Giles told War­wick­shire’s web­site. “Whilst I have a lot of his­tory with the Bears and have pre­vi­ously en­joyed suc­cess as a player and a coach, this is a brand new chal­lenge and I look for­ward to meet­ing up with all the play­ers and the new man­age­ment team in Jan­uary.” Giles played for War­wick­shire for 13 years and, as di­rec­tor of cricket, led the team to the English County Cham­pi­onship ti­tle in 2012. — AFP
