WR Coach James Bath has confirmed he will return to playing action in 2019, whilst Running Back Coach Simon Smith has taken a step back due to time restraints and assistant Coach Jon Sheelan has also confirmed he will not return next year.

Chairman Luke Clark wishes to thank the departing coaches for their hard work saying “we could not have won a championship without them, they have been an integral part of the Cheetah family and they will always be welcome back when time permits. Thank you.”

We can also confirm that DB Coach Ray Palmer has accepted the defensive co-ordinator role and therefore leaves a void at defensive back.
