John Steele Retires
John Steele has decided to hang up his Tutor / Assessor hat and retire from the delivery of Coach Education for the Lancashire Cricket Board after many years of service.
He believes that during the transition of the coach education programme from old to new, this is the ideal time to do this and he reckons that he would find it difficult to fit it in along with his other cricketing commitments.
Tony Potter, Coach Education Manager of the LCB, said: "On behalf of us all I would like to thank him for the service he has given to Coach Education over the past years. As a tutor he prepared diligently in order to deliver a high quality product, was extremely reliable, had a great empathy with the candidates and was totally devoted to producing coaches who would do outstanding jobs back at their clubs.
"His work was greatly appreciated by all of us but I am sure through his involvement with Ramsbottom CC and the Bury CDG we will still see an awful lot of him.
"Good luck for the future John and thanks again for your great work in Coach Education."
John coaches at Ramsbottom CC as first team coach and is involvd with the Bury Cricket Development Group where he coaches in their District Cricket programme.
