Ryan will arrive in Hong Kong on 5 August 2012.
As a player, Ryan’s First Class career spanned for more than a decade, during which time he played 98 First Class games for Western Australia and Australia A, 105 List A games, and ten T20 games. He is ranked 9th on the ‘All-Time Run-Scorers’ list for WA and 4th on the ‘All-Time Most Dismissals’ for wicket-keepers for WA. He has also represented Australia in two One-Day Internationals. He has been a part of WA’s last two winning Sheffield Shield teams as well as the last three One-Day Domestic titles.
From a coaching perspective, Ryan has an ACB Level 3 Coaching Certificate and has been a coach and player at the largest First Grade District club in WA, Joondalup Cricket Club.
From humble beginnings, his coaching role in recent seasons has seen him turn the club into a powerhouse of WACA cricket. By implementing structured junior programmes and identifying young talent, a high number of these young players have grown into quality First Grade players and beyond. He has also been the personal batting and wicket keeping coach for several current first class players.
Ryan possesses a strong work ethic and is incredibly passionate about the game. He is a down-to-earth person who doesn’t come with an ego. He is a forward thinker who is very determined and disciplined. He possesses all of the attributes that we could hope to see in our new Head Coach. The Cricket Section Committee is very excited with the prospect of what he can bring to KCC cricket as we look to take our game to the ‘next level’. We expect that Ryan will provide the KCC with excellence both on and off the field.
When you see him at the Club, please make yourself known and welcome him to the KCC.
Ryan Campbell replaces Peter Wooden who took up an appointment as National Head Coach and High Performance and Development Manager at Vanuatu Cricket.
