England team director Andy Flower picks up two accolades at the 2011 UK Coaching Awards after an "outstanding" year
The England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive David Collier has hailed the contribution of England team director Andy Flower after he won two prestigious accolades at the 2011 UK Coaching Awards.
Flower was named UK Coach of the Year and High-Performance Coach of the Year at an awards ceremony in London, having helped England become the No1 ranked Test side in the world following a 4-0 whitewash of India earlier this year and after leading England to their first Ashes success in Australia since 1986-87.
“Andy has been an outstanding Coach to the England cricket team and I am delighted that his dedication, knowledge and all-round leadership skills have been recognised within the wider sporting world,” said Collier.
“The last 12 months have been momentous ones for the England cricket team and this is in no small part due to Andy’s personal drive and determination to bring the best out of his players and ensure that our preparation and performance are second to none.”
