Cape Town - The Knights
have appointed Werner Coetsee as the Central Franchise's assistant coach for
the 2019/2020 season.
The Knights' former captain has worked closely with the team for the better half of
the 2018/2019 season as an interim assistant coach.
wonderful to see a great servant of the game brought into coaching and
managerial position in South Africa," commented Johan van Heerden, Chief
Executive of the Knights.
"Werner has proven himself to make a success of
everything he is involved in."
Coetsee will be
assistant to Alan Kruger, who was appointed as head coach of the Knights
three weeks ago.
Both Kruger and Coetzee took charge of the Knights late last
year when Nicky Boje parted ways with the Central Franchise.
"As a qualified
accountant, Werner will give more structure to the management team, and his
knowledge and love for the game will be of great influence on the young team we
have," commented Van Heerden.
As someone who
has played at such high level of cricket, Werner will bring his experience and
professionalism to the team.
"We are looking forward to his contribution in the
2019/2020 season," concluded Van Heerden.
