Dominic Cork announced as Twenty20 Head Coach just over a week before the Vitality Blast pre-sale window opens.
Cork named T20 Head Coach
Former Derbyshire and England all-rounder, Dominic Cork, has been named as Derbyshire’s new Twenty20 Head Coach for the 2019 season.
The 1993 Benson & Hedges Cup winner has been worked with the club as Twenty20 Specialist Bowling Coach for the last two seasons and now steps up to take over from John Wright, who remains an adviser to the club.
Cork said: “The club is dear to my heart – it’s where I started my career – and I’ve been grateful to work alongside John Wright in the last two years as the team has progressed.
“We’ve got players here who can win Twenty20 games and we’ve already upset the odds on a number of occasions.
“We’ll continue to work as hard as we can hopefully take the club one step further to Finals Day.”
