Former Easterns head coach Richard Das Neves has been appointed high-performance manager at Northerns, ahead of South Africa’s 2021-22 domestic season.
Das Neves has effectively succeeded former Northerns high-performance manager Mark Charlton, who has joined Northern Cape as head coach.
Northerns have been placed in the first division of the country’s new domestic structure. Provincial has replaced franchise cricket.
“To work in a professional, well-run structure with a great vision is really exciting,” said Das Neves.
“I look forward to working closely with head coach Mandla Mashimbyi and the players, to continue the success that the union has had in the past, as we head into the new era of South African cricket.
“The vision and championship mindset is aligned with my way of thinking.”
Das Neves’ former assistant coach at Easterns Tumelo Bodibe, meanwhile, has been appointed to the same role at Border.
