Duncan Fletcher set to join Hampshire


Former England coach Duncan Fletcher is poised to return to the game in an advisory role with Hampshire after the club confirmed they were in talks after appointing Giles White as team manager.

“We are in discussion with Duncan Fletcher regarding a consultancy and advisory role with Hampshire,” chairman Rod Bransgrove said. “The purpose of this role is to review the structure of our cricket department and to conduct an audit of our coaching methods and procedures throughout the entire player development process. ”

White took temporary charge of the team in the latter stages of season after Paul Terry stepped down and Hampshire found some impressive late-season form to finish third in the Championship.

“It feels great. It’s been a long six weeks and things have worked out well. I’m looking forward to doing it next year,” White said. “For me to be able to have an influence on how it goes forward, I’m very excited about that.”

Bransgrove added: “Giles did a superb job as caretaker manager during the last couple of months of the season and the team has responded positively to his style and commitment. He has therefore earned the right take the position on a full-time basis and I am sure that all Hampshire supporters will wish him every success.”

Fletcher had a previous spell in county cricket at Glamorgan before becoming England coach and was in charge when they won the 1997 County Championship.
