Salliann Briggs has been appointed to the role of England Women Development Programme Under-19 Head Coach.

Salliann, who is currently Head Coach of the Loughborough University MCCU women’s programme - boasting eight current England players as either students or alumni - replaces Jonathan Finch, who has become Women’s & Girls High Performance Manager.

Her first official work on the U19 programme will be this weekend at the National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough for a pre-season camp.

Salliann says her priority in the new role is to create a surplus of talent for the England Women’s Academy, which feeds the senior England Women team.

“The main prerogative really is to make sure we’ve got a growing talent pool of high quality players coming through the U19 programme and they’re able to progress into the academy programme, not when they’re 19 but ideally before that.”
