Durham have appointed Ryan Campbell as their new Head Coach.

He has signed a three-year deal with the English county replacing James Franklin.

Campbell had been Head Coach of The Netherlands but his tenure there was at an end following the T20 World Cup.

The former Australian and Hong Kong international had also held a coaching role with Hong Kong.

“I am extremely honoured to be appointed Durham’s Head Coach and I can’t wait to get started," Campbell told Durham CCC.

“I will be working with some of England’s best cricketers as well as a young squad full of talent and I hope to bring an attacking, no fear style of cricket to the club.

“I also look forward to working with Marcus North to lead Durham to future success.”
