Former captain, Andrew Gale, has been reported as the new Yorkshire First XI Coach. The 32-year-old replaces Australian Jason Gillespie, who left the club toward the end of the season following a colossally effective four-year stretch.
Storm, who has resigned from playing to take up the position, has no past instructing background yet Yorkshire’s Director of Cricket, Martyn Moxon, is certain that Gale’s learning of the club and his undoubted authority qualities can bring the achievement that Yorkshire’s supporters request.
“We are charmed to report that Andrew Gale will be the new First XI Coach,” Moxon said on Monday (November 14). “We have experienced a thorough procedure and took a gander at all the alternatives that were accessible to us. We had 16 candidates for the employment with some to a great degree great applicants in among that rundown.
Be that as it may, toward the day’s end, for what I trust we require, Galey was the undeniable decision. He is profoundly qualified in the way that he has driven the group as Captain in the course of recent years and has mastery that we would not like to lose at the Club.
“I think the role now has got two parts to it. In the short-term, we need someone who can manage the First XI which is, in Championship cricket, a pretty senior group. I think it’s important that we keep that continuity within the group and protect the environment that we’ve created, one that has been so successful for us.
The long-term vision is to ensure that we have someone who can oversee the natural transition that will occur as the senior players retire and the younger players take over in their places. It’s important that we have that continuity and I think that in Galey we’re ensuring that will be the case. It also gives him time to build up his coaching experience and knowledge alongside the other excellent coaches we have here at the Club,”
