Phoenix Cricket Club are delighted to announce three new additions to their coaching team as the club continues to invest in the future.

Leinster U17 coach Richie Lawrence joins the club from Terenure as adult teams coach, Sunderland native Chris Siddell joins as womenís coach and overseas pro for 2014 is Lucky Peterson from Brisbane, Australia who will be working primarily with the clubís youth teams.

These new appointments represent another significant step for the club as it looks to deliver a high quality programme to just under 200 youth members alongside the addition of a sixth menís team and an expanding girls and ladies section.

Head coach, Matt Lunson is understandably excited by the prospect Ė ďThe clubís commitment to coaching is fantastic and itís great to be part of again. Iím particularly excited by the signings as Iíve built up close working relationships with Richie, Lucky & Chris in recent times and am aware of what they will offer the club.

"I worked with Lucky at South Brisbane CC in 2011 and was impressed with his commitment and professionalism. He will be a terrfific role model for all our young cricketers. Richie is a proven Division 1 player and we particularly look forward to him sharing that experience with our great group of teenagers as they establish themselves in the 1st X1 over the next season or two.

"Iíve worked with Chris all winter and although heís signed on as Malahide CCís CDO and we wish him well in that role, weíre delighted to have him on board with the ladies squad as they aim for promotion to Division 2.Ē
