Rush have appointed Barry Scott as their Director of Cricket.

34 year-old Scott has extensive coaching credentials, not only working at several clubs in his native North-West, but also throughout Ireland and abroad in New Zealand and Australia.

"I'm excited by this new challenge," he told CricketEurope.

"I'm looking forward to working at Rush, who have a proud history of winning titles at Ireland level with both their youth and senior teams.

"I certainly hope to develop and mould further talent, helping the club achieve their ambitions."

Rush welcomed the appointment of Scott, who will lead their coaching team during the 2021 season.

"After a competitive selection process the club are delighted to welcome Barry Scott to Rush as our new Director of Coaching," the club said.

"Barry will work closely with all sections of the club - Mens, Ladies and Juveniles - to develop our players and bring through young talent.

"We know all our members are looking forward to welcoming Barry to the club as we look forward now to the start of the 2021 season in just a few short months."
