Coaching changes
#21
The Club article does say that the departures are part of a restructuring so that implies that it isn't just a case of appointing like-for-like replacements.
To some extent, the wording may be an attempt to gloss over any suggestion that the departures are anything to do with competence or job performance. The same was said a year ago when Dougie left but I'm still not totally convinced that Ashley's job is markedly different from the job that Dougie did.
Anyway, I certainly think that Graeme Welch would be a good appointment.
I would only say that, if the aim is to appoint the best person for the job, you can only do that if you have looked at all possible options and (maybe) advertised the job to see who is interested.  After all, Mark Greatbatch might want to apply and would surely be a shoo in.

Great news.  As I say above, I'd appoint him as Joint First Team Coach with Jim - with him responsible for Bowling and Jim dealing with Batting.  I think, given how experienced Pop now is, he deserves something more than just Bowling Coach.

The Club could save a bit of money if they had Jim and Pop as Joint First Team Coaches.  Frostie would either move on, or (preferably, for me, given his loyalty), given the chance to move back to looking after the grass (presumably a bit of a saving on wages ?) and there'd be 2 Coaches (in addition to Ash, who would, in effect, be Head Coach), instead of 3 !  Team selection would be Ash, Jim, Pop and the Captain (whoever that is ?!).

Believe it or not, I did look this up before posting.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines shoo in: "In Horse Racing, a predetermined or ‘fixed’ race, or the winner of it. Hence loosely, a horse which is a certain winner."

I like going through life learning something new each day ! I always assumed it was referring to footwear. So you feel MG is a horse - from what I remember Donkey would be closer to the mark (pun intended)

Very disappointing that Chris Armstrong is being fired, he was a massive improvement over his predecessor in the role, was highly qualified and was trusted & respected by the players.

And he has been there since her qualified it’s his only job.

The Club has announced that Graeme Welch has been appointed as bowling coach.

Ashley says that he will not only be responsible for getting the first team back to winning ways "but also building a bowling academy equipped to develop a new generation of bowlers, from all backgrounds, capable of delivering continued success in all formats for Warwickshire and the Birmingham Bears."

Let’s wish him luck.

Yes best of luck for Graeme and I do like the idea of the greater role. Perhaps this time he will not be tempted away for quite a few years.

Perhaps now Ashley will deal with the batting problems.

Yes, I would have thought Frostie must be on borrowed time.  It's been the batsman rather than the bowlers who have generally let the club down over recent years - the time TF has been batting coach.  He's a lovely guy (and I'm sure he knows how to look after a good wicket and outfield), but he is simply not up to it as a batting coach (he didn't even have a great pedigree as a batsman - despite some valuable runs late in his career).  I would guess Ash is now scouting the grounds for someone who can do that job.

I am pleased that 'Pop' is back though - he did really well in his previous stint with us as Coach and has only added to that with his experience at Derby and Leicester.

Chris Armstrong has now found a new role at Birmingham City. in their Sports Science department.

It is a concern that Warwickshire have not yet named his replacement.
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.
There are GOOD Mugabe's
It is Warwickshire County Cricket Club!

Anyone else retired from the club recently? ;-)

George has an interesting interview here with Steffan Jones who is critical of the knowledge and skills of strength and conditioning coaches:

Of course, it could be a thinly disguised job application!
