Trott named England U-19 batting coach for World Cup

Jonathan Trott, the former England batsman, has been appointed as the batting coach of the England Under-19 team ahead of the youth World Cup that gets underway in New Zealand next month.

Speaking about the appointments, ECB’s performance director David Parsons said: “We are delighted that Jon Lewis and Jonathan Trott have accepted our invitations to join the England Under-19s at the World Cup, and grateful to their counties Sussex and Warwickshire for releasing them to do so.

“Jon has experience of the International Pathway having worked with the Under-19s on their tour of India last winter, and is currently with the Lions in Australia. Trotty was invited to help the Lions in their preparations for Australia by Andy Flower, and made a really positive impression on all the players and coaches during their week at the Performance Centre, so it’s good to be able to offer him the opportunity to gain further coaching experience at a World Cup – and to share his considerable international experience with our next generation of batsmen,” Parsons added.
