Yorkshire announce backroom appointments

Yorkshire have appointed former spinner Ian Fisher and Blaine Clancy as their new strength and conditioning coaches.

Fisher, who has held a similar role at Essex for the last two seasons, will replace Tom Summers, who moves to Hong Kong next month after six years in the role at Headingley, and will be assisted by 23-year-old Clancy.

The White Rose have confirmed that 37-year-old Fisher and Clancy "will be fully responsible for the management of player training from November 2013".

Director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: "We are delighted to appoint Ian and Blaine.

"There was a lot of interest in the role and we feel we have recruited two excellent practitioners. They are both young and enthusiastic and understand the demands of county cricket.

"I'm sure they will develop into a strong team and will take the players onto the next level over the years to come.

“I would like to thank Tom for his contribution. He has implemented some robust plans during his time that have enhanced the squad’s preparations.

"He has a great opportunity to develop his career further and everyone at the club wishes him and his wife, Anaick, every success in their new life in Hong Kong.”
