Former Cambridge University allrounder Richard Halsall will be appointed as England's first full-time fielding coach, according to a report in The Times. The Schofield Report, published in May, recommended such a position be made permanent.

Halsall has been working on a part-time basis with Sussex, as well as coaching the England Under-15 side. He also helped the England women prepare for their tour of India earlier this year.

He is currently working as head of physical education at Wellington College but will have to give that post up if appointed by the ECB.
