Notts coach eyes England role

Hampshire Chronicle: Mick Newell confirmed he would be interested in the England role Mick Newell confirmed he would be interested in the England role

Nottinghamshire's Mick Newell would be interested in replacing Andy Flower as England's team director.

Newell, 48, is one of the most respected coaches in county cricket and has flirted with the international stage before having held talks with the Bangladesh Cricket Board last year.

He is also highly thought of by the England and Wales Cricket Board, having been drafted in to help coach England Lions in the past.

Speaking to BBC Radio Nottingham, Newell said: "I would be interested to see what the position is going to be as and when it is advertised.

"I will take some interest in what happens with it over the next few days and weeks.

"We don't quite know what the job is going to be at the moment while the role is assessed.

"If you are an English coach, you want to work with the best players and that includes working at international level.

"Any coach in county cricket will want an opportunity to work with the best players on the international scene and I'm no different.

"My style is management as much as coaching and that seems to be the way England have run things in recent years.

"I would like to think I can do it in the future at England level."
