I’D JUMP AT CHANCE TO COACH MY BELOVED FOXES
LEICESTERSHIRE are a club very close to my heart, and the head coach role is one I’d be very keen to look at. I know I could make a positive impact, and have no ulterior motives, and I know I could bring good players back to the club.
The county seemed to have made improvements last season, performing better in the County Championship, but they’ve struggled again this season. I hate seeing that because they’re a good county. Every update that comes through to me about another wicket or defeat is sad to see, and it needs to change.
I won the T20 competition three times while at the club while also being captain. I loved my time there as a player, and would relish the opportunity to be coach there if I was given the chance. They’ve had a few tough years and have just been chasing their tails a bit too much.
There are some huge decisions that need to be made, and they need to be thought about very carefully.
I obviously love my coaching and having just got back from the CPL, I’d love to get my teeth into a role that lasts a bit longer. I’ve shown I can be successful with teams, winning with Jamaica in 2016, and I’d love to have that winning feeling in this country.
I’ve worked with world-class players and know how to make the difference. There’s some good people in the back room staff at Grace Road.What they need now is a wise head who cares passionately about the club.
