Shiv Chanderpaul appointed as Jaguars’ interim Assistant Coach
The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) announced the appointment of Shivnarine Chanderpaul as interim Assistant Coach of the Guyana Jaguars team. This appointment is with immediate effect, and comes on the backdrop of the ascendancy of Head Coach Esuan Crandon, who has departed to take up his position as Assistant Coach with the senior Cricket West Indies team. Crandon
has been the Guyana Head Coach since 2011, with Guyana winning the Professional Cricket League for four consecutive years during his tenure. Crandon will be with the Windies team at least until the end of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket World Cup 2019.
The GCB wishes to indicate that the appointment of Chanderpaul comes at an imperative time in the development of Guyana’s cricket, where the utilisation of knowledgeable and experienced coaches can lend effective support to the programme, which has shown significant growth.
Chanderpaul’s appointment is aided by his on and off field experiences in the sport. He has been a very productive ambassador having played all levels of cricket and it is expected that he will transfer valuable knowledge to the Jaguars.
With the elevation of Crandon, Rayon Griffith will perform the duties of Jaguars Head Coach, and is expected to continue to present his motivational approach, which has unarguably lent to the success of Guyana.
As part of the coaching development programme, Julian Moore will now be joining the Academy set-up with immediate effect as the Academy Coach. Moore currently serves as a Berbice Head Coach and that of the Guyana National Under-19 team and he is also the Tucber Park Head Coach.
