Dear Players, Members & Supporters,
I would like to advise of some exciting news regarding our Premier Men’s Head Coach Damian Shanahan.
Damian will head to the UAE/Oman at the end of this month to take up a 7 week position in Sep/Oct as the Senior Assistant Coach of Papua New Guinea at the ICC T20 World Cup. It’s a wonderful compliment to Damian and will enhance his growing reputation as a Coach. PNG will play in a number of international games before the T20 World Cup starts in earnest in October.
Indeed, should PNG finish in the top two of its 4 member group and progress to the Super 12 Stage, Damian will be pitting his wits against the likes of Australia, England or India. It will be a tremendous coaching and learning experience. To be in this elite group will allow Damian to fine tune his coaching skills and will inevitably result in benefits flowing back to our playing group.
We all wish Damian every success and do so in the knowledge that the playing group are in the safe hands of Barry and Matthew during his secondment.
President, Greenvale Kangaroos
