Somerset Cricket Board's Boys Head Coach will be leaving SCB at the end of the year. Somerset County Cricket Club have restructured the current coaching set up and Greg Kennis will be joining the County Club as an Assistant Coach and will oversee the Second XI.
The decision comes following an extensive review carried out by Director of Cricket Andy Hurry and Head Coach Jason Kerr.
Discussing his appointment Andy Hurry said: “This is recognition for the outstanding work he has delivered over a number of years and the impact he has had in developing the foundation skills across our Player Pathway both within the Somerset Cricket Board and the County Club. I am pleased to announce that he will move across to the Club to fulfill the role as an Assistant coach, with added responsibility to lead and oversee our Second XI, from January 1st.
SCB would like to wish Greg all the best in his new role and we unreservedly thank him for his contribution and commitment throughout the past 5 years. During Greg's time with SCB we have seen the emergence of several high quality young players and his commitment to the cause has been absolute.
Commenting on his departure, Greg said: 'It has been an amazing experience to be part of the growth of SCB and in particular the strides forward the boys game has taken throughout the County in recent years, evidenced by the succession of young cricketers on to the academy and further onto the professional staff, something that I will continue to observe and enjoy, only now from a different role“
As SCB move forward and review the pathway process, Greg will continue to be a regular face around Age Group cricket until a new Head Coach is appointed. The recruitment process for a new SCB Head Coach will begin shortly.
