Coaching hunt begins


MYRTLEFORD plans to appoint separate coaches for both its men’s and women’s Country Basketball Leaguesides for next season.

Les Stevens took charge of both teams in the club’s inaugural season and is expected to put his hand up for one of the two roles.

Brendan Cusack said all roles within the two teams are open.

“We’re advertising for head coaches, assistant coaches and team managers,” he said.

“It was a bit unfair on Les last season but he did a fantastic job with both sides and if it was anyone else in that position they probably wouldn’t have done anywhere near as well.

“We’ll go through a process this year to find the best person for each job.”

Both teams finished fifth in their debut seasons, one place out of the finals.
