Former England seamer was forced into retirement by injury last summer

Graham Onions has been appointed as Lancashire’s new bowling coach, after injury forced him into retirement last summer.

Onions, who played nine Tests for England between 2009 and 2012, suffered a back injury ahead of the Bob Willis Trophy season and retired in early September following medical advice.

He has worked in a coaching capacity with Lancashire’s age-group and academy sides since joining the club ahead of the 2018 season, and continued in that role last year following his retirement.

Onions has a level four qualification from the ECB, and joins a coaching set-up that includes Glen Chapple as head coach and Mark Chilton as his assistant. The club have also regularly used Carl Crowe as a spin-bowling consultant in recent seasons.
