Easterns have confirmed the return of head coach Geoffrey Toyana.

Toyana coached at Easterns previously before working with the Lions and Titans.

“We are pleased to have Geoffrey come back to Benoni, where it all began for him,” said Easterns manager Colin Gxowa.

“It means a lot to us, especially because the man brings calibre and experience. Back in 2008, when he started coaching, he had just left the playing field.

“Now, he is an accomplished coach with loads of experience. With the talent and young team we have, we are certain the players will learn a lot from Geoffrey.

“Geoff is coming back to familiar territory, where he played club and first-class cricket. He knows the area well and the potential it has.”

Toyana has succeeded former Easterns head coach Sandile Masengemi.
