Paul Shaw has been appointed head coach of Manchester Originals women in the Hundred.
Shaw, 48, coached the Thunder in the inaugural Rachael Heyhoe Flint trophy this summer on an interim basis, and has now been awarded that role, plus the Lancashire and Manchester Originals jobs, permanently. He has previously worked in a number of different roles at the ECB, including as head of England women’s performance – effectively head coach – from 2013 to 2015.
With a level of collaboration and interaction between the eight new regional hubs and teams in the women’s Hundred, the recruitment process was carried out by Lancashire.
The Originals will play their games at Emirates Old Trafford and Sedbergh School in the Hundred’s inaugural season, with Kate Cross their only confirmed player to date.
“I am really pleased to have been offered the opportunity to continue the project which was started this summer,” Shaw said in a media release. “It was a really productive, albeit short, summer of cricket and as a side we had some excellent days and some tough days, but I believe that all of our players made huge strides forward.
“I am also looking forward to coaching the Manchester Originals side in the Hundred which will involve working with some of the world’s best, while continuing the progression of our own North West crop of players.”
