Onions beaming as he gets to work in life after playing

Onions beaming as he gets to work in life after playing

The 38-year-old was appointed as Lancashire's full-time bowling coach earlier this week

Sat inside his room at Emirates Old Trafford's Hilton Garden Inn after another busy day at the office, Graham Onions is beaming after the announcement of his appointment as Lancashire's bowling coach.

The role comes with sacrifices for the former England international, who will be spending perhaps more time than ever away from his young family in Gateshead.

But for a man who has become a firm Red Rose favourite, the opportunity to take up his first full-time coaching role at a Club with so much talent was too good to miss.

“I'll throw everything at it and give it my best shot. I'm going to dedicate everything I possibly can to the players, which is great," he said.

“The way I am as a person and the dedication I give towards everything I do, from a cricket and coaching point of view, is throw everything at it and give the best I possibly can.

“I’m going to be working with those players and making sure that they’re competing against themselves to constantly get better.

"I love this club. I've not been here that long, but I feel as though it is a second home and that I belong to the Red Rose, and I’m desperate to win more silverware and develop some of these young lads from the academy to be professional cricketers.”
