Welch joins Essex coaching staff

Welch finished his playing career earlier this year

Essex have appointed former Derbyshire and Warwickshire all-rounder Graeme Welch as their seam bowling coach.

Welch had to end his playing career earlier this summer because of a persistent Achilles injury.

"After retiring from playing, I've been looking for a new start," the 35-year-old told Essex's website.

Coach Paul Grayson added: "Although Graeme will primarily act as a bowling coach, I'm sure he could offer assistance to our batters as well."
