Three of the coaches invited are part of the Bulls Masters Premier Cricket Competition while dual World Cup winning captain Jodie Fields will enhance her coaching involvement through the program.

Ashley Holznagel (Sunshine Coast Scorchers), Ciara Metcalfe (Wynnum- Manly DCC) Peter Clarke (University of Queensland DCC), and Jodie Fields (High Performance Programs), will be part of the program at the Bupa National Cricket Centre that starts tomorrow and continues until Wednesday.

The four Queensland coaches are part of an intake of 22 from throughout Australia who qualified based on their work in Premier Cricket, Pathway or High Performance programs.

Ashley Holznagel has experienced success coaching at both the Scorchers and Sandgate-Redcliffe Premier Clubs, highlighted by the Scorchers' Kookaburra T20 title in 2015. 

Metcalfe has expanded her coaching credentials since retiring from a distinguished playing career, including captaining Ireland and playing in four World Cups. She has taken over Wynnum-Manly’s female program, as well as coaching juniors, and is excited at the opportunity to develop and embed a strong female program within the Club. 

Peter Clarke has been involved with University Cricket Club for seven years after establishing their Academy program prior. He has lead a highly successful program as Head Coach over the past three years, claiming a hat-trick of Club Championships. The Blues Premier Club team has claimed two-day, one-day and T20 titles during his tenure and finished second in the inaugural FOX Cricket National Premier T20 Championships last season.

Former Australian Captain and Queensland Fire legend Jodie Fields will also be part of the course after working in the Pathway and Elite coaching programs on a guest basis with Queensland Cricket and Cricket Australia over the past three seasons.

State Coach Development & Pathway Manager, Jeff Thomas congratulated the four successful coaches on their inclusion.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for Ashley, Ciara, Peter and Jodie who have shown a great desire to develop their coaching skills to help advance their Premier Clubs and State Programs,’’ he said.

"We are extremely pleased that Queensland Cricket has been rewarded with four positions on this year's program."

"Each season we invest in developing Premier Cricket & Pathway coaches and we've rewarded these coaches who are committed to learning and developing their individual craft and demonstrate an athlete-centered approach."

"We aim to build on each individual's competence, confidence, connection and character to enable them to be the best version of themselves and help their athletes achieve success."

Thomas said it was no secret that Premier Cricket coaches had been targeted for the program.

"Premier Cricket is the entry point to High Performance and we will continue to embrace this pathway."

Queensland Cricket thanks the Australian Cricketers' Association for their support of Jodie's application to the program.
