People on the Move: Enoch Nkwe

Former Proteas Assistant Coach, Enoch Nkwe, has joined Lions Cricket as a strategic cricket consultant for the months of March and April.

The 40-year-old Nkwe is also a former head coach of the Lions and the Jozi Stars, and played 42 first-class and 38 List A matches for Lions and Gauteng between 2002 and 2009.

Since stepping away from his Proteas role in 2021, Nkwe has enjoyed a break from cricket, but is now ready to resume with Lions Union Cricket.

“Enoch has proved himself time and time again and has always been an asset and welcomed member of our Pride,” said Lions Cricket CEO, Jono Leaf-Wright. “This has been several months in the making, with myself, the team and Enoch expressing an interest in working together once more. It all comes down to high performance – we strive for setting up structures that will drive high performance, impacting men and women. Enoch will work with our framework coaches and our system in this space as well as the semi-professional Imperial Lions women’s team and the Imperial Lions men’s team. We know that Enoch will add tremendous value in terms of what players we want to retain, who we want to attract, and how best to position ourselves moving into the next season.”

“Lions Union have been successful over the last couple of seasons under the leadership of the CEO Jono Leaf-Wright, Head Coach Wandile Gwavu and the rest of the Lions staff. We all know that Lions Cricket has the best cricketing system in the country, so I am confident in my decision to be here and hope to help the system reach even greater heights,” said Nkwe.
