Kent have announced the formation of a new women's coaching team in readiness for the defence of their 2010 LV= Women's County Championship title, with England captain Charlotte Edwards set to take a leading role.

The county have decided to appoint a coaching team with international playing experience, from which hugely successful England skipper Edwards will take a primary role.

Edwards will be supported by her Kent and England team-mate, Lydia Greenway, and former New Zealand international Emily Drumm.

Drumm, like Greenway and Edwards, has an impressive international record having played in over 100 one-day internationals for her country.

Jason Weaver, Kent's high performance manager, said: "This is an exciting opportunity for Charlotte, Lydia and Emily.

“All three have fantastic experience and the rest of the team will benefit from their undoubted expertise.

“We enjoyed an excellent season in 2009 and this new enhancement to our coaching structure shows that we are fully committed to building on that."
