    *Marsh to Stand down as Academy boss

    He's decided to spend more time with his family and will leave next year.

    a bid loss IMO, hope we can find someone decent to take his place

    I propose Pickup.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Not a single name springs to mind

    I'm not sure what the ECB will be looking for, do they want a 'high profile' candidate, or are they willing to take someone from within the domestic academy system?

    I Assume the new direcetor will not take a position on the selection panel as Marsh currently does, who then takes over this position?

    Yes, Lillee did resign from his Australian position, and he has been approached by other countries, good timing if you ask me.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Lillee had a contract under the Pace Australia program as opposed to being employed by the Australian academy specifically.
    In any case, I understand Lillee's role wasn't full-time.
    In 1995, 16 commandos of the GRU Spetsnatz went
    head to head against 16 US ARMY Rangers in Alaska in ten tests of physical strength and endurance.
    Final Result: Spetsnatz 9 US Army Rangers 1

    It's possible that some may not know the name - a wicketkeeper of modest talent for Kent, who backed-up Steven Marsh for some years.
    He's been coaching at Kent\Kent Academy for 4 years now and by the sounds of things he's done a very shrewd job.
    Thing is, of course, Kent CCC were very proud to trumpet him as part of an "all-Kent trio" who combined the roles of Academy, First-team and Second-team coaches. That was less than 2 years ago. I don't know that he'd want to leave after such a short stint.

    Actually I thought that he was full time and Cricket Australia wanted to make him go part time and Lillee didn't like this and quit?

    No. He was part time, but they wanted to reduce his contact days and pay.

    He was working 30 days/year..the ACB wanted to cut him back to 15 days ( and reduce his daily rate ), so they could hire a full time pace coach.
