Marsh to coach Workers Cricket Club

By STEVE SPINKS

LISMORE Workers Cricket Club have secured Dominic Marsh as player-coach for this summer's expanded LJ Hooker League.

Marsh, who originally started in the Hooker League with Marist Brothers in the 2005-06 season, moved to Workers midway through last summer before heading to England to further his education.

"I'm doing sports management at Southern Cross University," Marsh said.

"As part of their exchange program I went to England for a semester.

"It was half-way through their winter but I did manage to do a pre-season with a club training on indoor basketball courts with mats rolled out over the floorboards.

"The bounce was pretty inconsistent."

Marsh also played a handful of matches with Bath Cricket Club.

The off-spinner will finish his studies this year but will remain in the area until the end of the season.

He hopes he can help transform Workers from easybeats to genuine contenders.

"The program we've put in place at Workers is to give the club a bit of direction," he said.

"We're not expecting miracles but I think we are going the right way. "We've got a lot of good young players like Jeremy Cowin, Jason Caught and Matthew Knapman and the like." After this summer, Marsh is looking at moving back to England full-time.

"I did my internship with the ICC European division," he said. "It was pretty interesting.

"Also, the Olympic Games s is going to be held in London in 2012 so there is lots of work in sport going on there at the moment."

Workers begin training sessions today at Woodlawn from 5.30pm at the indoor centre.
