The Commissioner of Police (ag), Nigel Hoppie, who chairs the Police Sport groups, has congratulated Ryan Hercules on his ascension to the Manager/Assistant Coach role of Guyana Harpy Eagles, the country’s senior national Men’s cricket team.
Hercules, who also coaches the Force’s cricket team, was confirmed for the national job late last year, and his first task will be the Regional Four-Day Championship next month.
A release from the Guyana Police Force indicated Hercules started his journey as a cricketer at the Parika/Salem Sports Club as a teenager and represented Essequibo for a number of years before playing in England and Australia.
After returning to Guyana, he served as assistant coach of the Guyana Senior Female and Guyana Under-15 teams and is currently on the pathway to Level III accreditation, which is understood to be among the highest accredited level.
According to the release, Hercules in his new role plans to work hard with players to help them achieve team and personal goals, bring success to the franchise, and keep intact with the development of players going into the West Indies set-up.
