James Pamment will continue coaching the Northern Districts until the end of the 2016-17 season after he signed a two-year contract extension.
Pamment signed the two-year extension before the Northern Districts travelled to India for the recently concluded Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20).
During last year’s domestic season, which was Pamment’s first as head coach, the Northern Districts won the Twenty20 competition and were the runners-up in the one-day tournament.
“I am honoured to continue to coach this group of men, and proud that the organisation have seen fit to extend my contract ahead of time,” Pamment said. “We are an extremely proud region comprising our six districts, and I look forward to continuing to work with them and their players over the next three seasons.
“We look forward to the coming season with great optimism. We have a strong core group of senior players, and some really exciting talent that we expect to keep developing.”
Northern Districts CEO Peter Roach added: “When we were recruiting for a coach before the start of last season, our brief was to find the coach that would best maximise the individual and team performances of our next great crop of players. We have seen nothing in the past 18 months to indicate that James is not the very best person to achieve this goal.
“In James we have someone that really believes in ND’s philosophies around individual player development, and understands fully where we wish to head as an organization.”
