Harewood are excited to kickstart 2021 with our Mens & Womens CPL / Div 1 Programme!
The CPL Women are coming off the back of a title in 2020, after being led by Matt Ling who will continue as Head Coach of the women this year. Matt is an experienced coach & player as well as a life member of Harewood. He has many coaching accolades to his name, including successes at 1st XI school level and various Canterbury teams. Matt will look to drive the Women to defend their three titles they hold including the Championship, Rosebowl and Presidents Shield.
Chris Leslie took over the role of coaching the CPL Men in 2020. In a rebuilding year, the men placed 3rd in an extremely tight competition. Chris will continue this role in 2021 alongside the assistance of Glenn Hayde. The men are in great hands with Chris having been to 4 Olympic games and involved in the national programme for over 20 years. He has had success at a regional level and 1st XI school level as well.
The Div 1 Men will be coached again by Andy Innes and Mike Skilton who took over the team last year. Andy & Mike are both passionate coaches with many years experience both playing and coaching at high levels. Andy has previously been the assistant coach of the National women and coached the Canterbury Cats. They did a fantastic job last year and are excited to continue developing this talented group of athletes.
Our Div 1 Women are one of our strongest teams having represented in the top 4 for many years now. They are looking to defend their title they have held for the past two years. Kim Grafton, our club president and Women’s Club Captain, takes on the coaching role this year after the success of Kate Trolove for the past few years. Kim has coached in our Harewood Platinum & Junior programme for many years, as well as Junior Canterbury teams, most recently the U15A girls in 2019.
