Smith To Captain Middlesex In 2008; Radford To Coach

Middlesex CCC today announced that Toby Radford has been appointed as First Team Coach and Ed Smith has been re-appointed as Club Captain for the 2008 season.

Middlesex CCC Chief Executive, Vinny Codrington, commented: “We have reviewed the 2007 season in detail and are extremely confident that the Ed and Toby partnership that was so successful after the unfortunate departure of Richard Pybus, is the way forward. We feel that we can achieve our 2008 objectives with this team, under the direction of John Emburey.”

Ed Smith stated: “We hoped to gain double promotion last summer. We achieved that goal in the NatWest Pro40 and missed out by only one place in the LV County Championship. We are determined to build on our success in the second half of 2007, when Toby Radford was coach, and continue to improve performances in 2008. I'm already looking forward to the challenges of next season.”
