Johnston to be a coach in Australia
30 Jul 2014 10:10
Trent Johnston has accepted a coaching job with Cricket New South Wales and will begin a two-year contract with the Australian side in September. The 40-year-old former Ireland captain will have a dual role for the state he grew up in, assisting NSW senior coach Trevor Bayliss and also serving as a Pathway Coach. "It's a wonderful opportunity for myself and my family and one that I simply can't pass up," said Johnston, who has been the heartbeat of Irish cricket during the past decade. "I didn't go looking for the switch but now that's it's happened, I'm relishing the challenge and looking forward to what I suppose is a homecoming for me, having started my cricket career at NSW what seems like a lifetime ago. "I'm going to an organisation that is steeped in tradition and history and is of course my birth state.
“I will miss Cricket Ireland and its people, sponsors, and fantastic supporters. Everyone has been amazing to me and my family over the past 10 years, and I'll never forget that." Johnston will relinquish his coaching roles with Cricket Ireland and Leinster Lightning on September 10, and it's clear that he will be leaving with a heavy heart.
