NEW NORTHERN DISTRICTS COACH ANNOUNCED…

ND Cricket are delighted to announce that John Bracewell will be the new head coach for the Northern Districts Men’s team (fist-class and limited overs).

Starting immediately, Bracewell brings a wealth of coaching experience within New Zealand and abroad. Northern Districts Cricket CEO Ben MacCormack is thrilled with the appointment. “John obviously comes with a huge level of varied coaching experience from all across the world, he also feels connected to our philosophy of developing future BLACKCAPS. To have secured the services of someone of John’s calibre speaks volumes for the organisation and the culture that has been built here for many years, he is now part of the Northern Districts family” MacCormack concluded.

Bracewell’s coaching career has included roles with the BLACKCAPS, Ireland, Auckland and Gloucester and has taken New Zealand to semi-finals at T20 and ODI world cups along with many domestic titles. He is looking forward to building on the good foundation laid by the coaching team over the last 3-5 years. “I spent some time with the ND lads over the summer working with coaches and was very impressed with the athletic presentation of the players and forward thinking nature of the administration and support staff. It was great that the courage of their conviction paid dividends. I’m really excited to be working with this organisation.”

Graeme Aldridge and Matthew Horne will continue to deliver as specialist coaches across the Men’s programs and Gareth Hopkins as the Knights T20 Men’s Coach

 



Welcome to Northland Cricket

Greg Guy…

It is with great sadness that the NCA recognises the passing of Greg Guy.

Greg was an unwavering supporter of cricket in Northland. His involvement in OCCC, NCA, NDCA and NZC showed the true passion he had for the game, at all levels, and his commitment to supporting cricket was tremendous. He was, throughout many years, heavily involved in the Northland Cricket Association, within various managing and administrational roles.

He had two stints as the NCA Chairman (1982-88 and 2011-14). During his time as Chairman in the 80’s, Northland won the Hawke Cup twice and Greg often told stories about those days and the strong relationships he formed and continued to have, with players who played in that era, was something very special. Greg will be sorely missed, but he will most certainly not be forgotten within the cricket family.

The NCA’s heartfelt condolences go out to Carol, Stephen and the Guy family during this tough time.

 

QSM Medal for Peter Crawford…

Northland Cricket would like to congratulate Peter Crawford on his QSM medal that he received in the Queens Birthday Honours list this week. Peter received his medal for services to the community and sport, an accolade that is more than deserved. His association with cricket goes back a long time, and was instrumental in setting up the twilight cricket league in the late 70’s that is still running to this day. Peter also helped found the Northland Charitable Cricket Trust in 1986 and his name is proudly on the Johnson Crawford Indoor Centre at Cobham Oval. Congratulations Peter for being recognised for your services to Northland Cricket and beyond! Click here for the full article in the Northern Advocate….
