(Article reporduced from The Press article at http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/cricket/5239014/Lance-Cairns-takes-coaching-role-in-Christchurch)
Former New Zealand cricketer Lance Cairns, unwanted as a national selector after just a few months in the role, is coming to Christchurch to take a new coaching position with the Marist-Harewood club and St Bede's College.
Cairns, 61, who played 43 tests and 78 one-day internationals, will be director of coaching at the club and school in a joint initiative. The position was originally filled by Garry MacDonald. However, McDonald resigned to take a coaching role in Nelson.
Cairns, who was based in Gisborne, has no qualms about coming to earthquake-stricken Christchurch. He lived in the city for about five years a decade ago, when working with a fudge-making business run by son Chris. "I love Christchurch and I'm very keen on the role," Cairns said.
Cairns, a New Zealand under-19 selector, believed one of his strengths was identifying teenage talent and helping develop that talent to a bigger stage. "I'd like to think I can watch a guy bat or bowl for a while and have a fair idea about his ability and where he is heading," he said. Cairns said too many players burst onto the scene at youth level but were pushed too quickly and had a setback to either be lost to the sport or resurface a few years later. "I like working with them and getting bowlers working on line and length and batsmen working on building an innings," he said. "Sometimes we tend to interfere with techniques when this is what has been working for the youngster."
Cairns was reluctant to comment on the reasons for his dismissal as a New Zealand selector, having only been appointed in December. New cricket director John Buchanan is using a national selection manager to work alongside coach John Wright in picking the Black Caps. "They have gone down a new path, but I would still like to be involved with New Zealand Cricket and believe I have something to offer," Cairns said. In the meantime, Cairns will take up his new position in mid-August, about six weeks before the start of the Christchurch cricket season.
Marist-Harewood director of cricket Peter Boock said Cairns' publicised hearing loss was not an issue. "Previously, his hearing was only 7 per cent, but after surgery it is 75 per cent," Boock said. "We had Lance in Christchurch to interview him and were very impressed how the surgery had repaired his problems," he said. Boock said he used to play with Cairns in Dunedin. He said, at that time, Cairns could often not tell when a batsman had been caught behind from an edge.
The committee are still meeting monthly to make sure things are underway for the start of the second half of the season. Below are some of the tasks currently in the pipeline.
We regret that Garry MacDonald will not be joining the school as Director of Cricket as announced below, however, plans are still underway to employ someone in this role. A number of factors have seen Garry leave Christchurch and move back to Marlborough - we wish him well in his continuing coaching career.
Silverstream will visit during the October school holidays for a Twenty/20, 50 over and the traditional 2.5 days game against the 1st XI.
We are investigating holding a Youth Cricket Tournament in early December - details to follow.
Different fund raising activities are being discussed. If you have any suggestions, please contact any member of the committee. See the Contact Us link on the left.
At the last meeting of the cricket committee, we discussed the subs that had been invoiced just prior to the February earthquake. The committee have decided to reduce the subscriptions for the 2011 calendar by 20%, to reflect the lost playing time for the season. The effect of this will be the reduction of the $100 subscription to $80, and the $150 subscription to $120.
In addition, we are happy to receive the subs in two payments. For those invoiced for $100, $30 due for immediate payment, and $50 due before the resumption of the second half of the season. For those invoiced for $150, $45 due for immediate payment, and $75 due before the resumption of the second half of the season. I know many have already paid the sub in full. We thank you for this and a credit will be shown on your account for the balance.
