  Tango coming back to Taunton  

STEVE Kirby one of the most colourful of characters at the Coopers Associates County Ground in recent years is returning to Somerset as their new bowling coach.

KIRBY played for Somerset between 2011 and 2014, claiming over 180 wickets for the Club across the three formats of the game. He also appeared in two T20 finals for the Club and was part of the Champions League side that reached the semi-finals in 2011.

His new role, which will commence in February, will see Kirby return to the Cooper Associates County Ground to provide specialist bowling coaching and support to the senior professional squad. He will also play a key role in ensuring a smooth transition for high-potential bowlers into the professional game.

Kirby will work closely with Head Coach, Jason Kerr, the Club’s Skills Coaches, the Sport Science & Medicine Team plus the Pathway Coaching Team, where the relationship with Academy & Pathway Bowling Coach, Andrew Griffiths will be key to ensuring a continued conveyor belt of bowling talent makes its way through to the highest level.
