In the latest edition of The Cricketer, it is reported that Stuart Law would like to bring in ex-Hampshire wicket-keeper Nic Pothas as Middlesex assistant coach. They have previously worked together in the West Indies set-up when Law was head coach and Pothas was fielding coach.

I am confident that Pothas could also double-up as a bowling coach, as I remember he dismissed Scott Styris when declaration bowling was required during the Middlesex v Hampshire match at Lord’s in 2006. That was a good match for Pothas, as he scored 102 not out and 74 not out, although the wicket of Styris was the only one of his career.

The Cricket Paper printed a full page article last week on Stuart Law.

He did mention that he would be able to handle the batting coaching that was required.

Tongue in cheek comment might add. If he played in MX T20 we might win a couple more games.

He also added that his recent employers the West Indies, may not be the pushover most media outlets here predict.

We shall see. Starts 2pm today on the Sky Main Event.

From a game at Worcester awhile back. Shannon Gabriel looke rapid.

The story about Nic Pothas being likely to be appointed as Middlesex assistant coach has now been reported on Cricinfo, so maybe the appointment will be confirmed in the coming days.

In the 2019 members handbook that was in the mailing,N.Pothas is listed as assistant coach.
So,I presume it's a done deal.

Interesting.

So Nick Pothas is effectively replacing Richard Johnson.

That must make us the only county without a real specialist bowling coach.

I realise all top coaches understand the principles of all the disciplines, but surely someone like Johnson had the experience of what it is like to bowl 25 overs in a day, and the understanding that goes with being a bowler.

Alan Coleman is a specialist bowling coach and a highly-rated one. Not always necessary to have played test cricket to be a good coach.

DB- That's fair enough.

If he is taking on the role of bowling coach (as well as 2nd XI coach) it would be nice if the club formally announced it.

Nic Pothas appointment now on the website (and I see Alan Coleman also gets a mention, without specifically using the term 'bowling coach')

Pothas was West Indies fielding coach? Not sure that is in itself the greatest of recommendations, though perhaps it would have been even worse without him!

In the article confirming the appointment of Nic Pothas, Angus Fraser says “Stuart [Law], Nic and Alan Coleman give Middlesex Cricket a coaching team to be extremely proud of”, so it seems unlikely that we will make any more full-time coaching appointments. However, I know that we tend to use other coaches on a less regular and less official basis, as I know that Jack Russell has previously worked with our wicket-keepers, and I think Min Patel has worked with our spinners. Of course, as Pothas used to keep wicket and once dismissed Scott Styris, it is uncertain whether we will need to resort to bringing in these extra coaches.

Pothas and Law have spoken to our YouTube page:
