Adult Team England Manager and Selectors Announced

The BTBA is delighted to announce the appointment of Ian Oakley as the new Adult Team England Manager. Ian brings with him a wealth of experience as both a coach and manager, and is looking forward to working with both current and future Team England squad members. I am sure that members will join me in wishing him all the best with his new appointment.

Joining Ian on the England management team as selectors are Kim Johnson and Lisa John. Both players have many years experience behind them in our sport and will bring honesty, transparency and knowledge of bowlers to the selection process.

At this time, the position of Adult Coach is not yet filled, but with a wealth of knowledge out there to tap into, we are sure of continued success.

Finally, I would like to wish all new members of the England team great success and a warm welcome to the squad.

Jo Cundy
