Glen Chapple, Lancashire’s head coach, has been named as England Lions’ fast-bowling coach for the four-day games for the forthcoming West Indies tour, starting in February.
Chapple, who played for Lancashire for 24 years, snaring 985 wickets in first class cricket, was appointed as the head coach of the County in January last year.
Andy Flower, the Lions head coach, noted: “Jon Lewis’s appointment for the Under-19s World Cup left us in need of a fast bowling coach for the West Indies, and we are delighted that Glen Chapple has agreed to join us.
“Glen has worked on the Pathway before with the Pace Programme, and is now establishing himself as a head coach at Lancashire, who already have a strong playing representation in our squads. I’m looking forward to working with him over the next few weeks, and as ever we are grateful to his county employers for giving him the opportunity to work with us,” he added.
