HAVING spent two seasons as an AFL Central Victoria regional football manager, Shane Koop is moving into a new cricket role with Northern Rivers.
Koop has been appointed the new Northern Rivers cricket manager and will begin in the role on Tuesday, March 5.
Prior to working for AFLCV Koop had an eight-year stint employed by Cricket Victoria as the Inner East Metro regional cricket manager.
He has also been involved with Northern Rivers as a specialist network coach.
IT’S tight at the top in the Flack Advisory Distance Series points aggregate with three races remaining.
The series continues on Thursday night over 1000m at the Tom Flood Sports Centre in conjunction with the Bendigo District Cycling Club.
Peter Cowell leads the series with 60 points, but has Luke Matthews (59), Aaron Norton (56) and Mandy Worthington (56) all hot on his heels.
Cowell took over the leadership last week with a second-placing behind Michael Preece, who was too strong in the windy conditions over 1200m in his first run of the series.
If Preece backs up on Thursday night he’s going to be tough to beat again.
However, front-marker Worthington should relish the shorter distance as she has led into the final straight on several occasions in the series.
