Cricket Australia Coaching


Premier Coach Competition Winner

06 December 2018

Fran Sullivan from Hobart has won the Premier Coaches Competition.. Entry was available via the first Premier Cricket Newsletter, and Fran will now be a guest of Cricket Australia in Melbourne at the Boxing Day Test.

Fran has spent the last three seasons as Head Coach of the female program at Newtown Cricket Club where the season has typically provided a nice mix of successes and challenges. The senior team is currently sitting atop of the 40 over ladder but the higher level performances are proving elusive in the T20 competition matches. Fran introduced a significant preseason program this season with great success. The program included both male and female juniors and was very well received.

She is an active member of the coaching fraternity, extending her involvement into the Tasmanian Pathway programs. Fran is the Head Coach of the Hurricanes Youth Academy side Southern Storm and is an assistant coach of the Tasmanian Under 15 Female team where she has thoroughly enjoyed the dedication, enthusiasm and involvement of all the players.

We congratulate Fran on her contribution to Australian Cricket and encourage all Premier Coaches to consider being involved in these opportunities in the future.
