Good work by GM Bashar :up:

One correction needed though -
The first sentence of second paragraph contains ... "as does the Richach McInness the <b>recently departed</b>" ... those last two words need to be replaced.

Btw, the new coach sounds good and very diplomatic (in a good sense).

are you thinking of dead ppl? while that is the most popular usage, I think this is still correct?

On to the actual article, I'm disappointed that AdW has not already dounded out Richard/Observer already.

But more seriously, I am glad that Allister will bring in the same Australian work ethic that Richard had brought in.

Yep. That is pretty much the only usage when used in that way. Departed is used in the same vein as deceased. When used as a verb, the usage changes of course.

Anywayz, don't mean to nitpick on grammar or syntax. It was a good introduction to the new coach nevertheless.

... as long as you don't see dead cricketers or fans :D

I agree, the continued exposure to Australian professionalism is going to be good for the young 'uns. Work ethic is fundamental.

Very nice!
So we already have contacts with our next U-19 coach and I hope we will be getting time-to-time updates from him as we used to get from MacInnes.
