Scorpions coach wary about effects of COVID-19 lockdown on players

Voice of Jamaica Scorpions coach Andre Coley

With local cricket still at a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic, Jamaica men's senior team coach, Andre Coley says he is well aware of the impact this could have on the Scorpions franchise for the next regional competition.

Coley who led the Scorpions to joint third in the 4-day championship in his first season, says the absence of a local competition will have an impact on the state of players when they return to action.

However, the former West Indies assistant coach says with the ease of some lockdown restrictions, he has taken the opportunity to do one on one sessions with players to help with keeping them sharp.
Coley's comments come as JCA president, Wilford 'Billy' Heaven, told Radio Jamaica Sports new protocols are being put in place for the return of local competition.

In a story aired on Saturday, Heaven said the protocols which took into account 13 fundamental issues, also have guidelines in place which mandate players to wear masks when disembarking their team bus and eliminate the coin toss.
