The England Men’s Physical Disability team has appointed a new coaching team

The England Men’s Physical Disability (PD) team has announced the appointment of Chris Highton as Head Coach and Lloyd Tennant as Assistant Head Coach.

The pair will join the England Men’s PD set-up on a two-year contract, bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and experience from across the professional game. Chris Highton has been with the Men’s PD team for 10 years, having first been introduced to the side in 2014.

Highton currently serves as the batting coach for the Derbyshire County Cricket 2nd XI. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge about the physical disability game and the players.

Tennant, formerly a player for Leicestershire, joins the squad after spending the last four years as the head coach at Central Sparks. He has over 20 years of coaching experience in the professional game.

England Men’s Physical Disability Head Coach Chris Highton said:

"It's a real honour to be named Head Coach of the England Men’s Physical Disability team. Since being exposed to the PD environment back in 2014/15, I’ve been blown away by the extraordinary talent and truly great people involved. It’s a privilege to work in this environment.”
