England Coach's Glasgow roots examined by the beeb.

McCrea West of Scotland Chairman, Colin Mair, has contributed to an article on the BBC about England Coach Trevor Bayliss.

The article partly examines Bayliss' time as West professional:

'As part of a two-year spell as the overseas player at West of Scotland CC, Bayliss was asked to coach at the High School of Glasgow by West captain Colin Mair.

"He was only in his mid-20s and his first coaching role was working at the school in the summer of 1989," says Mair.

"When he finished playing, the first professional coaching job he got was a development role with New South Wales. I was one of the few people who had actually seen him coach, so I wrote him a reference."'
