England cricket legend Andrew Flintoff has been appointed as Head Coach of Northern Superchargers men’s team in The Hundred.

Flintoff, 45, is renowned as one of England’s greatest ever players. He played over 200 times for his country and was also Test captain.

Since retiring from cricket in 2009 he has become a television host – including as part of The Hundred team in 2021, and recently has been working as a consultant coach with the England Men’s team.

The former England all-rounder will take on his first Head Coach role through the competition in August, looking to inspire his new side to success in the fourth year of The Hundred.

Flintoff said: “I am excited to have been appointed Head Coach of the Northern Superchargers men’s team. Big thanks to Kirsty and Marcus for trusting me with the team. My time with the England Men’s team has been a reminder of just how special cricket is to me, and I’m relishing the opportunity to be back amongst it, helping to guide the Superchargers team to success on the field while making memories off it and helping to take cricket to more people.

“The Superchargers have a great fan base who I cannot wait to meet and bring along with us this season. I’m looking forward to making Headingley my new home.”

He is an inspirational figure who has huge respect across the game of cricket and he is someone we know will excite our players, coaches, and our fans. Andrew will help us to create a unique culture and we are extremely excited about working with him to inspire our squad further with positive, entertaining and consistently winning cricket.”
