We are delighted that Joe has agreed to come on board as Head Coach to help develop and improve the talent we have at the club and to drive the club forward to more success. Without question, Joe was one of the best Professionals the league has had in recent years. He had fantastic cricketing ability and just as important, he had the passion and will to win that produced a lot of success at the clubs he played for. He comes with a wealth of coaching experience both in the UK and abroad and I am sure he will be a great addition to the club.”

On accepting the appointment, Joe commented :

I’m looking forward to the exciting opportunity and challenge of working with Haslingden CC to develop existing senior players and to also help progress players from juniors to seniors in what will be a new era of the Lancashire League.”
Joe’s work will start in earnest early in 2017 as pre season preparations commence. The work will continue over the summer  months when it is targeted that we will have progressed our outdoor state of the art non turf practice facility in order to enhance the benefits this appointment can bring to the club.

As well as his cricketing and coaching skills, Joe is also an accomplished drummer. If you want an early chance to meet Joe then his band “The Joe Publix” are performing at HCC on Friday 30 September playing a set including The Clash, The Jam, Madness, Ska and many many more. Doors are open from 7.00 and ADMISSION IS FREE !!!

We look forward to seeing the results in 2017.
