Titans Cricket has announced that former Northerns XI cricketer Byron Fraser will be taking over as the head coach of the provincial team.
Speaking about the appointment, Fraser said that he wants to help the Titans players' achieving their dream of playing for South Africa. "The Titans have achieved unparalleled success in the past, and I believe they will continue to do so in the future. I am looking forward to being a part of this and hopefully contribute to further success for the brand," he said.
Fraser has been a player with Northerns XI and also holds a Level Three coaching qualification. He is well aware of the specialised coaching programme SSE at Titans Cricket and is excited to take up the role.
The 31-year-old said that his philosophy of coaching is more about allround improvement of the players. "My philosophy has always been to try and improve on what we were the day before. This philosophy is more than just cricket. Improvement in all aspects is encouraged," he added.
Fraser said that he not only wants the athletes to play as much cricket as possible, but also to work on other aspects of the game, such as umpiring and coaching courses.
"This knowledge could potentially have the added benefit of keeping more women's players on the game beyond their playing days."
"I'm looking forward to building the team spirit and the camaraderie throughout our campaign. I want to use that to pull together in the big moments and win as a team," he concluded.
