Sussex's cricket manager Mark Robinson will coach the England Under-19s side at the 2010 World Cup in New Zealand.

Robinson will be assisted by Sussex batsman Carl Hopkinson, who was recently handed a coaching role at Hove.

"It's a great honour to be coaching England and this is another good learning experience for me," Robinson told the county's official website.

"I'd like to pass on my gratitude to Sussex for releasing me from my duties for the tournament and I'm very much looking forward to the competition."

Chief executive Dave Brooks added: "Mark's been an exceptional coach for Sussex over the last four seasons and we're delighted this has been recognised by England."
