The ECB today announced that Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell has been seconded to lead the England Under-19 tour of Bangladesh in October.

The move follows the recent appointment of the current England U19 coach, Andy Pick, as ICC development performance manager for the Americas.

Newell said: “I’ve never been involved with an international team or a representative side but it’s something that I’ve always aspired to and this tour is the ideal starting point for me.

“I have already seen some of the players in first-class cricket and am looking forward to doing more work ahead of the the tour with the full squad at the National Cricket Performance Centre at Loughborough.”

ECB managing director Hugh Morris said: “I would like to thank Andy Pick for the excellent contribution he has made to both the England U19s team and our Elite Player Development programme. We wish him well in his new post.”

“Mick Newell is widely respected within the domestic game and his knowledge, skills and experience will be an invaluable asset to the England U19s team as they prepare for an important winter which will include a World Cup in New Zealand early in the New Year.

“It’s a great opportunity for Mick and we are very grateful to Nottinghamshire for their help and support in making this happen.”
