Former England all-rounder Paul Collingwood has agreed to rejoin Scotland’s coaching staff and help them throughout the 2015 World Cup.
After helping them qualify for the World Cup last winter, Collingwood decided to return and assist head coach Grant Bradburn in Australia and New Zealand.
“It’s a great pleasure for me to be back on the coaching team with the Scotland squad for the 2015 World Cup,” Collingwood said. “I’m very much looking forward to working with them to help get the team fully prepared for these incredibly important matches.”
Bradburn added: “We are fortunate to once again have the valuable services of Paul Collingwood on board with us for the World Cup. Paul will bring a calmness and confidence to our environment and is very familiar with all of our players having been a support coach with Scotland during the World Cup qualifiers in February. The World Cup will be a massive stage for our players to step out onto and release their vast natural skills. Having the experience of Paul in our corner will be a huge asset for all of us during this event.”
Since this will be Scotland’s third World Cup campaign, they have already started preparing for the tournament as they recently travelled to the Land Down Under and New Zealand, where they beat Tasmania and Wellington.
