Cricket in the North takes another significant step forward today with the announcement of eight coaches being appointed to NT Cricket’s Statewide Super Pathways Program.

The eight coaches – two of whom are based in Alice Springs with six in Darwin – will become the engine room of NT Cricket’s new Statewide Super Pathways Program, focused on  developing players, coaches and umpires across the Territory. The eight coaches are:

Adrian Gallagher, Palmerston Cricket Club
Amber Ashton, West Cricket Club
Chris McCormick, Waratah Cricket Club
Darren Treumer, Tracy Village Cricket Club
James Kennedy, Federal Cricket Club
Marc Calkin, PINT Cricket Club
Robert Vandermeulen, Palmerston Cricket Club
Udara Weerasinghe, Nightcliff Cricket Club

Under the stewardship of Head of Pathways, Neale Price, the coaches will implement and drive NT Cricket’s new #TerritoryTough philosophy. 

#TerritoryTough represents the unique and innovative approach our Northern Territory players, coaches and umpires will approach the game, centred around the boundless opportunities and advantages that exist in the Territory.

Under the mantra #TerritoryTough, we will unite and inspire our community by:

Delivering on our promise
Offering no excuses
Being loud, proud and respectful
Drawing upon the skills and knowledge within our community
Educating and upskilling
Being nimble and agile
Capitalising on our unique ability to play year-round across the Territory
Training and preparing with a short format focus

The Territory has proven time and time again that its community has the expertise, resources and resilience to succeed, epitomised in cricket by Territory players such as D’Arcy Short, Kane Richardson, Tabatha Saville, Jake Weatherald, Tom Andrews and Luke Robins starring on the international and national stage.

We punch above our weight and we’ll continue to strive towards producing the most elite talent per capita across Australian Cricket.

We’re #TerritoryTough in the North and that’s how we’ll play our cricket.
