Second XI coach Sean Ackermann has been promoted to Durbanville Cricket Club’s first XI head coach ahead of the 2024-25 Western Province Cricket Association premier league.

Ackermann coached Durbanville Cricket Club’s second XI to the WPCA reserve division A title earlier this year.

He has succeeded former Durbanville Cricket Club head coach Manny Senger, who stepped down recently.

“We are thrilled to announce Sean has been appointed first XI coach for the upcoming season,” said Durbanville Cricket Club chairman Morne de Beer.

“Sean brings a wealth of experience, passion and expertise to our team.

“As a former player and dedicated coach, he is committed to nurturing talent, strategising gameplans and leading our players to victory. We wish him all the best in this crucial role.”

Senger coached Durbanville Cricket Club to several titles, including the T20 Community Cup, WPCA premier league, National Club Championship and Cape Town Club Cricket League.

“As I end off my time as head coach of Durbanville Cricket Club’s first XI, I would like to reflect and thank all administrators, support staff, opposition players and coaches, family friends and supporters,” said Senger.

“It has been fun, momentous, emotional, challenging, sensational, satisfying, developmental, educational, celebratory, proud, but most of all a relation-building process with a special bunch of cricketers.

“We always stood firm through those trying times, finding ways within the squad to come out on top. This we did time after time. We were tested, but we never gave in, we built a proud brand based on success. This success will form the base for future successes – this I truly believe.”
