    Dan Ashworth, ex-FA boss, to join Warwickshire committee

    Brighton technical director Dan Ashworth is to lend his football expertise to cricket by also working for new county champions Warwickshire.

    Ashworth, 50, who began his career as a footballer and reached director level with West Brom and England, will sit on the Bears' cricket audit committee.

    "To tap into his skills, experience and vision could be game-changing for Warwickshire," said CEO Stuart Cain.

    "Dan has been working at the highest level of football for several years."

    After Ashworth's hopes of making it as a professional footballer ended at Norwich, he worked in youth football with Peterborough United and Cambridge United before joining West Bromwich Albion in March 2004.

    He then took over from Aidy Boothroyd as the Baggies' academy director in June 2004 before succeeding Simon Hunt as their sporting and technical director in 2007.

    He was then headhunted by the Football Association to become director of elite development in 2012, a role he filled for seven years until resigning from the FA in 2018 to join Brighton.

    He is still based in the Midlands, from his time with West Brom.
