Har­ley back­ing cricket coaches, teams

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Workplace -

DON Har­ley has re­turned to his ju­nior cricket club as ju­nior co­or­di­na­tor for the 2016-17 sea­son.

Har­ley, of Leed­erville, will sup­port young teams and their coaches at Clare­mont Ned­lands Ju­nior Cricket Club.

He said this sea­son’s aim was to en­sure ju­niors re­ceived good coach­ing and that the coaches got sup­port and re­sources to en­sure that hap­pened.

Nearly 700 ju­niors have signed up with Clare­mont Ned­lands this year, in­clud­ing 40 girls.

Har­ley (24), who runs the Clare­mont Tigers Ju­nior Foot­ball Club pro­gram through win­ter, said he played a big role in get­ting the girls foot­ball team at Clare­mont and wanted to do the same for cricket.

“There’s no rea­son cricket couldn’t fol­low suit,” he said.

“There were no girls teams when I was play­ing ju­niors at Clare­mont.

“We did push to have an older girls team this year but we didn’t quite get there.”

The for­mer Greater Western Syd­ney Gi­ants player takes over from Mickey Arthur, who stepped down as ju­nior cricket di­rec­tor at Clare­mont Ned­lands this year to coach the Pak­istan cricket team.

Reg­is­tra­tions are still open for the T20 Blast that is played on a Fri­day evening and In2 Cricket, which is played on a Sun­day morn­ing.
