Former Australia international allrounder Ian Harvey will join Gloucestershire Cricket as assistant head coach.

Ian Harvey won 6 one-day trophies at the club between 1999 and 2003 and says he is looking forward to trying to bring the glory days back to the Bristol County Ground.

It’s a really exciting time. Over the next few seasons we’ve got the opportunity to start pushing for trophies and for promotion.

We are past rebuilding now, we have a lot of senior players here who’ve played a lot of cricket and it’s up to us as coaches to get the best out of these lads.

If we do then trophies and promotion aren’t out of the question.

– Ian Harvey

Ian will work alongside Richard Dawson who was appointed head coach at the end of January. The pair played alongside each other at Yorkshire and worked together at Gloucestershire in 2013.

It’s very exciting for the club to have Ian Harvey as assistant coach. We interviewed some very strong candidates and Ian stood out.

He already knows about the club having been a major part of its most successful period in the late nineties and early 2000s when they dominated the one-day competitions. His passion for the club is clear to see and he wants to recreate the successful environment he experienced here as a player.
