Former Northamptonshire wicketkeeper Toby Bailey has been appointed lead performance analyst and fielding coach by Cricket Scotland.

He replaces Tony Judd, who quit last year to take up a coaching post in his native Australia.

Since finishing his playing career, 36-year-old Bailey has taken charge of the Argentina national side and also held the post of head coach at Carlton Cricket Club in Edinburgh.

Bailey, who had been tipped to land the role after touring with the national side last October, said: “I’m delighted to get this chance at such an exciting time for Scottish cricket.

“There will be many challenges ahead but I know that performance analysis and fielding are areas which make a real difference in the modern game.

“From working with the group in South Africa it is clear there is a wealth of talent around.”

Saltires head coach Pete Steindl said: “Toby has displayed a high level of professionalism and desire to add value to the experience we already have.”
