A summary of Julien Fountain's international cricket coaching career 1996-present


BIOGRAPHY

Julien Fountain is a High Performance Cricket Coach and former Great Britain Olympic Baseball player.

He has performed the role of Head Coach, Assistant Coach & Specialist Coach for a variety of teams around the world and has featured on the coaching staffs of the West Indies, Pakistan, Bangladesh & England. This includes 36 Test Matches, 106 ODI's & 28 T20 Internationals, including two ICC Fifty Over World Cups (UK 1999 & Asia 2011) & an ICC T20 World Cup (Sri Lanka 2012), an ICC Asia Cup (Bangladesh 2012), an ICC Champions Trophy (UK 2013) & an Asian Games (South Korea 2014).

Julien was part of the, the BPL 2012 Bangladesh Premier League winning Dhaka Gladiators coaching staff & the PSL 2016 Pakistan Super League runners up, Quetta Gladiators. He has also coached a range of ICC Associate or Affiliate teams, professional, national & international cricket teams.

Julien has been present at a number of key moments in cricket, including the West Indies players strike on their tour of South Africa in 1998, the forfeited Oval Test for alleged ball tampering, during the Pakistan v England Test series in 2006 and the Stanford Superstars "20 Million Dollar Game" where England were convincingly beaten in a one off T20 game by the newly created, privately owned franchise team.

Julien started his coaching career with the ECB England & Wales Cricket Board in 1996, working with their high performance youth teams where he coached the likes of Andrew Flintoff, Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad, Joe Root & Ben Stokes. He has coached at two world cups with the West Indies & Bangladesh and a T20 World Cup, an Asia Cup and a Champions Trophy with Pakistan. He has also coached South Korea at the 2014 Asian Games.

Julien took to the field as substitute fielder for the West Indies against the Prime Ministers eleven at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. He rose to the challenge by running out Anthony McQuire with a direct hit from the boundary. He has subsequently acted as substitute fielder three further times for both West Indies (Australia, UK) in 2001 & 2007 and Pakistan (in Abu Dhabi) in 2013. 

During the 2010 ODI series against Zimbabwe, Julien was appointed temporary Head Coach of Bangladesh, for the 3rd & 4th ODI's, whilst Jamie Siddons attended the birth of his 2nd child back in Australia. Bangladesh won the 3rd ODI, however the 4th was unfortunately abandoned due to rain. 

In January 2015 Fountain launched a project called Switch Hit 20 designed to help former professional baseball players transition into T20 Cricketers. This coincided with him accepting an invitation from the American Cricket Federation (ACF) to join their Honorary Advisory Board.

England Youth Teams

Julien’s cricket coaching career started in 1996, when he was approached by the British Baseball Federation to assist with a cricket coaching being run in Taunton by the National Cricket Association (now known as the England & Wales Cricket Board.) 

He agreed to attend, and was subsequently recognised by delegates as a former Somerset County Cricket Club youth player. After demonstrating a selection of applicable elite skills to cricket, he answered questions about how baseball skills transfer into cricket and what cricket could learn from baseball. Delegates were very keen to learn how a former cricket player had acquired these new fielding skills.

This course demonstrated that Julien had a vital contribution to make to improve English cricket’s fielding, so course organizer Gordon Lord started involving him in coaching across all the England Development Youth Teams. He became the official ECB Fielding Specialist Coach and has coached many players who have gone on to become high profile senior England players including Andrew Flintoff, Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad, Joe Root & Ben Stokes.

During his early stages with the ECB coaching system, Julien was also involved with coaching the England Women’s Cricket team and its various development squads.

 

England 'A' & ECB National Performance Centre

Over the winters of 2006 & 2007 Julien worked with England 'A' Team players, England youth team players, National Skill Set and Regional Skill Set Players at the England High Performance Centre at Loughborough University.

 

 Head Coach -  England U16

After the West Indies v England Nat West ODI series finished, he returned to the National Cricket Performance Centre to continue his work with both current and up and coming England Cricketers which culminated in his selection as Head Coach of the England Under 16 for a home series series against Australia Schools Under 16.

Not only was Julien able to pass on his elite fielding skills, but the high quality batting and bowling expertise he had gained over his extensive international career. This tenure was one of his proudest moments in cricket coaching as England U16 won the series against without losing a single game.

A number of these players have gone on to have very successful cricket careers including Joe Root & Ben Stokes.

 

England World T20 Squad 2007

It was also at this time that he achieved another seemingly unattainable milestone by coaching a group of England T20 specialist players at the National Performance Centre, prior to their departure to South Africa for the T20 Cricket World Cup.

 

ECB Coach Education

A fundamental part of changing he culture of English cricket’s fielding was improving coach Education for fielding and Julien played a key role in improving the fielding skills & drills involved within the ECB coach education system for many years.

He was integral in redesigning all levels of ECB courses and was the Lead Fielding Instructor for both the UKCC Level 3 course & UKCC Level 4 course. Subsequently Julien has been involved with Coach Education with every national governing body he has been involved with including (but not limited to) the Pakistan Cricket Board, the West Indies Cricket Board and the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

 

County Cricket Teams

During his career, Julien has run countless coaching clinics at County Cricket Teams, for first class teams, development teams and county coaching associations.

Pakistan 'A' Team Tour of Sri Lanka 2001

Julien’s first involvement with Pakistan came in 2001, after finishing with the West Indies he was immediately hired by Pakistan to assist Mudassar Nazar with the Pakistan ‘A’ Team on a tour of Sri Lanka. On the tour he focused on raising the teams fielding performance and many players from this team went on to have successful careers representing Pakistan at senior level.

Upon completing the Sri Lanka tour, Julien accompanied the team back to Pakistan where he was tasked with holding Elite Fielding Clinics at all the major academies across the country, including Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Sheikupra and Rawalpindi. 

He attended a week-long camp in Karachi under the guidance of Pakistan Head Coach, Richard Pybus with the senior Pakistan Team working with the players prior to their upcoming home series. He also held a series of clinics for Pakistan coaches at each of the venues in an effort to raise the standard of fielding nationally.

 

Pakistan Tour of England 2006

By 2006, Julien had gathered a considerable amount of experience having coached at a World Cup with West Indies, coached the Pakistan ‘A’ Team in Sri Lanka, and coached at a large number of academies & professional teams around the world.

Due to this extensive experience he was hired by Bob Woolmer as Specialist Fielding Coach for the Pakistan National Cricket Team on their tour of England. During the tour his role as specialist fielding coach was altered to allow for a greater input into the team's batting performance. He was used extensively by both a range of both senior & junior players.

Julien was in the Pakistan dressing room at The Oval in August 2006 when the infamous alleged "Ball Tampering" incident occurred which culminated in a forfeited test.

 

Pakistan 2012-2014

In 2012 Julien was appointed as Specialist Fielding Coach for the Pakistan International Cricket Team. He was based at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore,  where he worked exclusively with Pakistan cricketers at matches and during pre tour camps and clinics.

These included Test's, ODI's, & T20 series against Sri Lanka, Australia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, West Indies, Scotland, Ireland and India.

 

Major ICC tournaments Julien was involved with:

  • Asia Cup 2012 in Bangladesh
  • ICC T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka
  • ICC Champions Trophy in England

International Coaching Debut 1998 West Indies 'A' Team in Antigua.

In 1998 Julien was approached by the West Indies Cricket Board to help coach The West Indies ‘A’ Team in Antigua, prior to an overseas tour. He assisted with an intensive training camp, focusing on up-skilling the players with elite fielding tuition prior to their upcoming tour.

 

West Indies Tour of South Africa 1998

Having conducted a very successful pre tour clinic in Antigua with West Indies 'A" he was asked to accompany the full West Indies Cricket Team on their tour of South Africa as well as coaching on the WICB Advanced Course in Trinidad and Tobago. He undertook the course in T&T, then flew with the coaching staff & management to South Africa, via London. Unfortunately, his tour was cut short due to the unforeseen players strike which saw the team management in SA and the players still in London.

However, following this positive start, he was retained as part of the West Indies back room staff under then Head Coach Malcolm Marshall rejoining the national team in Jamaica for the second Test against Australia.  This was a landmark series and Julien was able to achieve remarkable results almost immediately. The tour culminated in an historical series finish in Barbados.

 

Cricket World Cup UK 1999

After the home series against Australia, Julien was selected as part of the coaching staff for the West Indies Cricket team to travel to the UK for the ICC Cricket World Cup. Despite having just performed well in the Caribbean, the team's performance was below par. This poor performance was, unfortunately, overshadowed by the sudden illness of head coach, Malcolm Marshall.

It was a very sad moment for Julien, as he had coached alongside Malcolm at Hampshire a number of times, as well as the West Indies. He had always looked up to him as a coach, and more especially because he was Julien’s hero as a young player growing up.

 

Queens Park Cricket Club, Trinidad

In 2000, following his successful involvement with the West Indies cricket in the Caribbean and then the Cricket World Cup in the UK, julien was appointed Head Coach, at Queens Park Cricket Club in Trinidad where he combined coaching with playing for the club throughout the 2000 season.

During his tenure he oversaw the development of exciting new talent such as Dwayne Bravo and Devon Smith. It was whilst performing this role he was again contracted by the WICB to coach the senior West Indies team, for a preparatory camp, in Jamaica before joining them as their specialist fielding coach on their tour of Australia. 

 

West Indies Tour of Australia 2000/01

This tour was a particularly tough one for the West Indies, where they struggled in most departments, losing the majority of their games, however the fielding continued to improve under the guidance of Julien.

It was during this tour that Julien had to put his money where his mouth was when, due to a large number of injuries, he had to take to the field as Substitute Fielder during the Prime Minister's Xl v West Indies game at the Manuka Oval, Canberra. He rose to the challenge admirably by running out Anthony McGuire with a direct hit from the boundary. In addition, he acted as substitute fielder against Australia 'A' in Hobart, Tasmania a few days later. 

 

South Africa's Tour of West Indies 2001

In 2001, following the tour of Australia, he returned with the team to the Caribbean for the home series against South Africa. Julien combined involvement with the national team with various coach education & elite player development clinics around the region. Julien was not retained after the South Africa Series, allowing Pakistan to immediately recruit him to work with their elite players.

 

West Indies Tour of England 2007

DSC00132.JPG

In 2007, after working with Pakistan in 2006, and England’s High performance unit at Loughborough Julien was contracted by the West Indies Cricket Team, who were touring England under their new Head Coach David Moore. This was on the recommendation of the senior players, who had requested Julien’s assistance for the remainder of the Test Series and the ODI / T20 series.

As he was then based in the UK, Julien was more than happy to assist some of his former players with their cricket in the UK. This proved to be somewhat of a turning point for the team, and they entered the ODI / T20 series with a new-found enthusiasm for fielding, culminating in the Nat West ODI Series win for the West Indies. 

 

West Indies Substitute Fielder

Julien had to put on the whites yet again as substitute fielder for the West Indies against the MCC at Durham. MCC were captained by Sanath Jayasuryia.

Stanford T20 Cricket Professional Franchise Teams

Late 2007 Julien was contacted by the Stanford T20 Cricket organisation, who had recently established new professional teams in Antigua, Nevis, St Lucia and Anguilla. His brief was initially to run a series of specialist fielding clinics with each of the teams with the goal of raising the levels of fielding performance across the region. He spent several weeks not only coaching these newly formed professional teams, but conducting an assessment of each organisation, looking at coaching, facilities, players and every aspect of their day-to-day operations to ensure that the Stanford Cricket brand was meeting its targets.

 

Stanford Superstars

In 2008, Julien was contracted by Stanford T20 Cricket, to be the official fielding coach for the newly formed Stanford Superstars professional franchise cricket team. The Stanford Superstars were formed with the intention of playing a Super Week T20 Cricket Tournament, culminating in a one off Twenty Million Dollar Game against England at the Stanford Cricket Ground in Antigua on 1 November 2008.

The event became the Stanford Super Series of cricket where Middlesex County Cricket Club from England, along with Trinidad and Tobago national cricket team, both of which had won their respective domestic T20 tournaments, joined England and the Superstars to play in a round robin series of games in Antigua, culminating in the 20-million-dollar T20 game against England.

As history shows the Stanford Superstars duly capitalised on their intensive coaching regime under Eldine Baptiste, Roger Harper, Cardigan Connor and Julien, by winning every game they played that week and receiving 20 million dollars, the biggest winners cheque ever offered in cricket by beating England.

This was for the 3rd ODI at Sher-e-bangla National stadium in Dhaka, which Bangladesh won. He was also head coach for the 4th ODI at Chittagong, which was rained off.

 

ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

Julien was part of the coaching staff for the Bangladesh National Cricket Team during the ICC Cricket World Cup.  Bangladesh played six games at this ICC Cricket World Cup; beating England, Ireland and the Netherlands but losing to India, West Indies and South Africa. They were knocked out at the group stage.

Julien Fountain's Playing Career & the ways Julien has brought Innovation to the game of cricket


Playing Career & Innovation

Julien Fountain's Playing Career & the ways Julien has brought Innovation to the game of cricket


Playing Career & Innovation

Cricket

Julien started his cricket career with Somerset Youth development squads, as a medium pace all rounder later switching to wicket keeping due to his desire to be constantly involved with every delivery. He was later selected to play in the Somerset Under 19 team aged only 15 due to a thumb injury to their regular wicket keeper. 

Since he began coaching internationally, Julien has represented a range of premier league clubs over the years, however due to his time & travel commitments, he seldom gets the opportunity to play a high standard of cricket now.

 

Baseball

Julien decided to take up baseball after watching the 1987 World Series between the Minnesota Twins and the St Louis Cardinals. He felt that the skill set needed for baseball was similar to that of cricket, so thought it worth pursuing as a possible career option. This is where the concept for his project Switch Hit 20 originated, and why he still believes today that former professional baseball players will make good cricket players.

 In July 1988 Julien was selected to represent Great Britain Under 19 Baseball Team at the European Championships in Bordeaux, France, having only played baseball for six months. The following year, 1999, he made his debut for the full Great Britain National Team, still aged only 19. He represented Great Britain, as part of the British Olympic Squad in the European Championships 1989 in Paris,  and again in 1991 in Rome. Julien represented Great Britain as a pitcher between 1988 and 2002.

In 1989, Julien was part of the British Olympic Baseball Team who took on an MLBPA “Major League Players Alumni Legends" team at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. The Legends team comprised of household names Bert Campaneris, Doug DeCinces, Bob Feller, Mark Fidrych, Tim Foli, George Foster, Jerry Grote, Mike Hargrove, Tug McGraw, Craig Nettles, Larry Sorenson, Willie Stargell, Rennie Stennett, Luis Tiant, Roy White, Billy Williams, Al Oliver.

During the early stages of his baseball career, Julien attended professional tryouts with Major League Baseball teams including the Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox and New York Mets. He spoke to a number of universities, with the intention of taking up their partial scholarship offers, however financially he was unable to, so instead opted to continue playing in the UK whilst attending Thames Valley University in London.

In 2002, aged 32, Julien was recalled to the Great Britain Baseball Team, to add depth and experience to their pitching staff for a qualification tournament in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

INNOVATION

Fielding Analysis System & Software

Something that had always puzzled Julien was the question how can you select a cricket player, when one section of his game has virtually no statistics to base it on. It seemed strange that such in depth statistical data was available for both batters and bowlers, but there was little or no data for fielders except catches.

It was for this reason, Julien designed an analysis system that would allow him to keep track of every single fielding event that occurred during a game of cricket. This system would then provide far more evidence of a team or a player, in terms of their performance on any given day and allow far more accurate, unbiased selection decisions removing opinion as is the case with batting and bowling.

The system was first used by Julien during his early involvement with the West Indies International Cricket Team on the 2000/01 tour of Australia; but he has subsequently used updated versions with every professional cricket team he has been involved with. It was converted into a software program to make it easier to both collect and analyse the fielding data. Generally, the system has been widely appreciated by both players and coaches alike, as it provides professionals with a way to measure their daily performance, which is important.

 

Slower Deliveries

In 2010, whilst on assignment in Bangladesh Julien and Ian Pont combined forces to create a devastating slower ball for pace bowlers or quicker variation ball for spin bowlers. With backgrounds in both cricket and baseball, they realized there was a potential skill crossover from pitching into bowling off speed deliveries. After some initial testing to ascertain the best possible grips and release methods, the slower delivery was added to both Julien & Ian's skill coaching repertoire. With T20 bowling relying increasingly on change of pace & slower balls, it is now replicated in some form by several bowlers worldwide.

They named the delivery the "Butterfly Ball" due to its erratic movement patterns through the air. It is based on the same aerodynamic principles as baseball's knuckleball pitch. Julien also teaches bowlers how to curve drop a ball using the principles of a baseball curveball & slider release.

 

Pro Batter Video Simulator Bowling Machines

Whilst at the National Performance Centre in September 2007, after a research trip to the USA, Julien brought the concept of using the Pro Batter Video Simulator Pitching Machines for cricket to the attention of Peter Moores and David Parsons. He introduced Pro Batter Sports, to the England & Wales Cricket Board and finally in 2010 Pro Batter completed the installation of two units at the National Performance Centre at Loughborough. Other units have been installed in the  ICC Academy, Dubai and in Australia.

 

 Media & Published Work

Julien has written many articles for a variety of well-known cricket publications. These include the following:

·      Wisden Cricketers Almanack, the worlds premier source for cricket data and statistics. “Chandimal, Chopsticks & China”

·      Wisden Cricket Magazine, leading UK cricket magazine. “Become a power Hitter”

·      Maxim magazine, a major UK men’s magazine. “How to throw a ball further, faster”

·      ECB England & Wales Cricket Board T20 Cricket Finals Match Day Program. “The Extra 5%”

·      Inside Edge, formerly a leading UK cricket magazine. “What Cricket can learn from Baseball”

 

Julien has also been involved with research, production & presentation of coach education material for a wide variety of NGB’s such as:

·      On The Up, the England & Wales Cricket Board High Performance Magazine. “But they do it in Baseball”

·      Hitting the Seam, the England & Wales Cricket Board Coach Education publication. “Something Old, something New, something Borrowed, something Blue”

·      Hitting the Seam, the England & Wales Cricket Board Coach Education publication “Fielding & Throwing”

·      Hitting the Seam, the England & Wales Cricket Board Coach Education publication. “Throwing”
