Gillespie points way for Yorks

Have your say

NEW Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie breezed back in to Headingley yesterday to meet the players he’ll have under his command come January.

The former Aussie pace bowler - who played for Yorkshire in 2006 and 2007 - stressed he will be aiming for an instant return from Division Two after the county’s relegation last season.

“The players are here,” he said. “They’re good enough and that’s one of the things that drew me back here. It’s exciting and hopefully I can help them because we’re all here to improve.

“We’re going to leave no stone unturned and we’re going to make sure we’re all clear on what we want to achieve.

“Ultimately you’d love to be promoted but there are a lot of things you need to do to that point. Let’s get those things in place, let’s build. If you get that right, results will take care of themselves.”

Gillespie, 36 and with 71 Test caps, flew in from Zimbabwe where he is coaching Mid-West Rhinos. He has been fast bowling coach to Australia A and Kings XI Punjab.
