SOUTH AFRICA coach Harry Shapiro was full of praise for the 22 local coaches who completed a Level 2 training course at Lugogo on Thursday.

Shapiro described the participants as enthusiastic, hard working and full of potential capable of furthering the development of the game. They were attending a one-week course in coaching cricket.
“They are a dedicated lot with a lot of enthusiasm and talent. They only need a little more hard work,” Shapiro remarked.

Shapiro, 65, is a South African professional coach who has also been instrumental in guiding some players on the Proteas national squad.

He guided the coaches in batting and bowling techniques, fielding options and also took them through theories. He was assisted by Sam Walusimbi.

Local development officer John Mayeku was optimistic the candidates were now ready to coach in schools and clubs.
