Woolmer interested in England role

Bob Woolmer has publicly announced that he would be keen on coaching England after saying he would be prepared to listen to offers following the upcoming World Cup in the West Indies when his contract with Pakistan expires.

Woolmer told the BBC that “I have always been proud of playing for England and just missed out on coaching them [in the past] because the timing was not right.”

Woolmer went onto say “I was part of a side that beat Australia as a player and have a yearning to do so as a coach.”

Duncan Fletcher’s position as head coach of England has come into question following their 5-0 Ashes loss and it is thought that the ECB will be looking for new coaching options before the start of the next English summer.

John Wright and Tom Moody have been linked to the job in the past and it appears there would be no shortage of high profile coaches putting their hands up for the role.
