Head Coach

Changes in PNG Orchids coaching staff

The recently appointed head coach, David Westley, believes the coaching staff is made up of individuals who are reliable and can deliver.

The staff is led by Westley as head coach, Sammy Rice Jackson as assistant coach and Ruth Turia as the team manager.

When queried on the exclusion of one of last year’s coaches, Westley said he had his chance last year where unfortunately, his actions have resulted in his omission.

Patel excited ahead of WCLC fixtures

Patel added he was excited ahead of the two WCLC fixtures that will start tomorrow.

Both 50 over matches will be played at Amini Park in Port Moresby on the 21st and 23rd.

“The Barras are going really well. The convincing win adds to their confidence.  

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the result and particular the way we  were able to force the win within the four days.

“The pitch played slow, low and very flat. We felt it was going to be hard to get 10 wickets in the last innings,” Patel said.
