Michael Powell, the former Warwickshire captain and England A batsman, has joined Cricket Scotland as a High Performance batting coach. The role will be part-time, as he is also a PE teacher and master in charge of cricket at the Loretto School in Musselburgh.
Powell's specific remit will be to work with a small group of current and emerging international players and help them develop their technical and tactical play. "I'm loving it here in Scotland," said Powell. "This is a great opportunity for me to work with Scotland's best batters and develop my coaching career."
"We are pleased to have Michael on board," added Andy Tennant, Scotland's head of performance. "He is a highly rated young coach with an excellent pedigree, and will provide welcome support to the excellent work being done by head coach Peter Steindl and the national coaching team.
"We are determined to leave no stone unturned to ensure that Scotland's finest players receive the best and most experienced support available. We are also indebted to Loretto School for allowing us to use Michael's skills in this exciting new role."
