London: Apr 26, 2014

Lancashire captain Glen Chapple is to be given an enhanced role at Old Trafford after Peter Moores left the county to become England coach.

The confirmation last Saturday that Moores had been given a second spell as England boss left the Red Rose side without a coach just two games into the county season.

However, Lancashire have decided against appointing a new permanent head coach at this stage of the campaign and will instead give 40-year-old seamer Chapple greater responsibility for first-team affairs, where he will be assisted by second XI coach Gary Yates.

Academy director John Stanworth will cover Yates’s work with the second team for the time being. Lancashire’s announcement Friday ruled out the prospect of them hiring Ashley Giles, the former Test spinner who led Warwickshire to the County Championship title, after he lost his position as England one-day coach in the shake-up that led to Moores’s return to national service.

Should Chapple retire at the end of this season, he could well inherit Moores’s old job. “It is crucial that we minimise the disruption to the cricket department while we are in the middle of an important run of matches and therefore we need to ensure that we have continuity and provide support, leadership and resources to help us achieve our aims and objectives,” said Lancashire cricket director Mike Watkinson.

“In his position as club captain, Glen Chapple, will have responsibility for the first team squad. Gary Yates will support Glen [Chapple] and spend the vast majority of his time around the first team squad.

“The club are actively looking to have an additional coaching resource in place as soon as possible, whose primary role will be working with the Second XI along with other coaching duties.

“Academy Director/Player Development Manager John Stanworth will support the Second XI for the forthcoming fixtures but fundamentally his role will remain unchanged.”

Lancashire visit Northamptonshire on Sunday for their next Championship match, their first since Moores left the county.
