KES Old Boy Nic Pothas to join Sri Lanka coaching staff

Congratulations to KES Old Boy (Class of 1991), Nic Pothas on his appointment as Sri Lanka’s new fielding coach.

Currently Leicestershire academy director Nic is to join Sri Lanka as fielding coach at the end of the week.

The 42-year-old, who also spent time coaching the Foxes’ first team and second XI, will link up with Sri Lanka for a home series against Australia.

Pothas said: “The opportunity to be involved in the game at the highest level is not one that I could pass up.”

Nic also spent 10 seasons with Hampshire and made three ODI appearances for South Africa.

The Red Community wish him well in this new position and may success continue to follow our Old Boy.
