David Moore To Step Down As Cricket Coach

October 19, 2012

The Bermuda Cricket Board confirmed that David Moore has indicated that, “for personal and family reasons,” he is not available to continue to work in Bermuda when his current contract expires on March 1, 2013.

The BCB said: “As an interim measure, until May 6th, 2013 (the completion of World Cricket League Division 3), Arnold Manders will assume National Head Coach duties with Clevie Wade remaining as national assistant coach. David Moore will provide guidance and support to the national team support staff to ensure a seamless transition for the players.

“The Executive will consider over the coming months, in conjunction with its long-term and annual plans, the appropriate coaching structure for its programs post this interim appointment.”

BCB President Lloyd Fray said: ”David has had a major impact on both our national senior squad and our development programs and leaves big shoes to fill. The evolution of the BCB junior elite programs into the current National Academy set-up has created a world-class preparation platform for our young men and women.

“Of particular importance is the holistic approach that the Academy delivers that not only includes technical, tactical, physical and psychological development but a major personal development component. I am very confident that the combination of Arnold and Clevie, on this interim basis, will allow the players their best opportunity to reach the next stages of the global competitions.

“The next 12 months provide an unparalleled chance for our team to return to the ICC High Performance program – I encourage all of Bermuda to support its team and coaching staff in pursing this strategic goal,” concluded Mr Fray.

      Ditto, it must be difficult working here where the “cricketers” have very little in attending training sessions and representing their country.

  2. Walsh says:

    Being that there is a new captain selected an will be a new coaching staff selected. Will there be a new squad selected?

  3. Rockfish #1 says:

    oops—-very little interest in attending etc.
