Gloucestershire to recruit performance director, eye first-ever Championship title


Ian Harvey expected to be in running for permanent head coach role

Gloucestershire have advertised for a new performance director and head coach, with the ambition of winning a white-ball trophy in the next two seasons and the club’s first-ever County Championship by 2025.

Richard Dawson, the club’s long-standing head coach, was appointed as the ECB’s elite performance pathway coach in March, with his assistant Ian Harvey promoted to interim head coach for the 2021 season.

Gloucestershire were well placed to qualify for both the top division of the County Championship and the quarter-finals of the Vitality Blast but missed out after a poor week of results in mid-July. ESPNcricinfo understands the club have been in constant discussion with Harvey throughout the season about his future and he will be considered a strong candidate if he applies for the head coach role.

The club have never previously employed a performance director and have made clear that they see the role as differing from a traditional director of cricket role, inviting applications from those involved in other sports and with backgrounds in talent identification and development.
