Stewart’s Melville CC are delighted to welcome Riyaad Henry to the club as part of our junior and senior club coaching team. Riyaad joins us from Ferguslie CC, whom he led to the Scottish National Club Championship title during the 2022 season.
Club President Greg Bissett commented “We are excited to welcome Riyaad and are naturally thrilled he has chosen to join Stew Mel.”
“The club was fortunate to have Riyaad’s input for parts of our junior coaching programme earlier this year, and we saw first hand the sort of individual he is and how influential a coach he can be. He really buys into the whole club ethos and the impact of that can be seen with the successes he achieved at Ferguslie and the manner in which they achieved it”.
“I am absolutely certain that he will add huge value across our whole club structure going forward. Being able to pair his talent and enthusiasm with our existing leads Shaylen Pillay and Hannah Short will be a great benefit to our most promising young players”.
Riyaad will get started in early January when he will lead our winter indoor coaching programme.
This week he travels to Spain as the Head Coach for the Scotland Mens team at the finals of the European Cricket League.
Best of luck, and Welcome to Inverleith Riyaad!
