Peter Such, the former England offspinner, has been named the ECB's national lead spin bowling coach having been involved in the system on a part-time basis for the last three years.

Such, who played 11 Tests for England, will be responsible for spinners selected for England Lions and England Performance Programme (EPP) squads as well as overseeing players within the development system. He will also be tasked with developing spin bowling around the domestic game.

David Parsons, the ECB performance director, said: "Peter is a Level 4 coach and has been responsible for establishing and overseeing, in partnership with the Brian Johnston Memorial Trust, the work of our specialist spin coaches within county academies and emerging player programmes.

"Peter has also been in charge of the delivery of our Level 4 spin module as well as coaching EPP and Lions Spin bowlers including Danny Briggs, Scott Borthwick and Simon Kerrigan. His monitoring and identification of talented spin bowlers in first-class cricket is highly respected and he's played a major role in sending our leading young spinners to Sri Lanka to play first class cricket to improve their games."

    Maybe he shouldn't be coaching considering how Swann has been spanked about the past 12 months.
