Boland will start advertising for a new head coach this week.

Boland are replacing the outgoing JP Duminy, who succeeded former Boland head coach Adrian Birrell before joining the Proteas.

“We are out in the market. We are asking the coaches to tell us they are interested in the position. When you’re advertising you must keep an open mind otherwise you are limiting yourself,” Boland chief executive officer James Fortuin told IOL.

“We are looking for a knowledgeable and dynamic professional coach. We are really looking for good people, someone in the mold of Adrian Birrell and JP Duminy.”

Former Cape Cobras head coach Paul Adams will not be re-contracted by Border. Adams might be in contention for the Boland head coach role.

Meanwhile, Proteas batsman Keegan Petersen and seamer Glenton Stuurman have joined Boland for the 2023-24 season. They have also contracted batsman Janneman Malan.

“They will bring their winning mentality but most importantly they are good guys,” added Fortuin.

“Keegan we know because he comes from our pipeline. Glenton is just a top professional. The man is a Protea.

“We’ve made the kind of signings that we think will position us to seriously challenge for trophies across all formats.”
