Cape Town - Former Western Province and Highveld Lions fast bowler Eugene Moleon has been named the University of Cape Town Cricket Club’s new head coach for the 2018/19 season.

The news was confirmed by South Africa's Club Cricket website on Tuesday.

Moleon will take over from Paul Phillipson, who has accepted a coaching post at Wynberg Boys’ High School.

The 41-year-old Moleon played 49 first-class and 66 List A matches for the Lions, North West, Western Province between 1996 and 2007.

“Welcome, Eugene. The former Western Province and Lions player will be taking over the first team for the 2018-19 season,” read a social media statement from the club.

“He won the Pro20 with the Lions and represented South Africa at the Hong Kong Sixes, so there is no doubt there will be some explosive cricket coming from the players.”
