Richard Scott leaves as Head Coach of Middlesex Cricket
Richard Scott has today left his position as Head Coach of Middlesex Cricket. Current Assistant Coach Richard Johnson will assume responsibility for running the first team for the remaining seven County Championship matches of the 2018 season.
Daniel Vettori, who arrived in the UK at the end of last week, will fulfil the Head Coach role in the Vitality T20 Blast, as he did in 2017.
Scott took over as Head Coach of Middlesex CCC during the summer of 2009 and whilst in charge he oversaw the club winning Division Two of the County Championship in 2011 and the County Championship in 2016. During his time in the position, seven players – Steven Finn, Eoin Morgan, Sam Robson, Dawid Malan, Toby Roland-Jones, Tim Murtagh and Paul Stirling – made Test debuts and many more were selected for England Lions.
Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said:
“On behalf of Middlesex Cricket I would like to thank Richard for all that he has given the club as Head Coach during the past 10 years; he has been a loyal, hard-working, committed and high-quality coach.
“As with every coach in professional sport we have shared highs and lows but to play a leading role in a side winning the County Championship is a triumph very few coaches can claim.
“Under his guidance more than a dozen cricketers have gone on to gain international recognition.
“A process to recruit a new Head Coach for 2019 will commence immediately.”
