Female coaches set to benefit through mentor program

Brisbane Roar W-League coach Belinda Wilson.
Australia’s female coaching fraternity are set to be the beneficiaries under a new mentoring program aimed at advanced coaches.

With funding from the FIFA Goal Project that was announced in August, the program is intended to help allow Australian women’s coaches and teams reach their full potential.

The Mentor Program is linked to achieving objectives stated within the 2014-2016 Women’s Football Strategic Plan.

The first step will occur next week when the 87 current advanced accredited coaches will have the opportunity to apply for one of six scholarships on offer.

“This is an important step in increasing the number of females coaches at all levels which is a strategic priority for FFA as was identified in our Women’s Football Strategic plan,” said Emma Highwood, FFA’s Head of Community and Women’s Football.

“We would like more females to coach at the highest level within Australia, which includes the Westfield W-League and the National Teams, but to achieve this we must put in place the support structure, to enable females to be identified and supported to reach their full potential. The Mentoring program is the first step to increasing the number of females coaching at levels within Australia.”

In addition to receiving financial support, the successful applicants will receive other benefits including access to high level training sessions, hands on support and guidance through a formalised mentorship program and the mentees will also be provided with coaching opportunities.

“Given the huge number of female players, it is very important to have female coaches to guide some of the female players,” said Eric Abrams, FFA’s National Technical Director. “One of the targets we have now is to encourage ex-players and Westfield Matildas to follow a coaching course. It is very important to have these players involved for many reasons, including as role-models.

“It would also be an advantage to have female coach educators to explain to our coaches what can be expected by young female players. To reach that point it is important to have a large number of female coaches enter the system. There are many advantages to further developing and encouraging female participation across all aspect of the game.”

Sean Abbott being supported by Phillip Hughes’ family

November 28, 2014 – 4:17PM

The thoughts of Phillip Hughes’ extended family are with Sean Abbott, the bowler who delivered the ball that struck the former Australian Test opener on Tuesday.

As Hughes’ family and the cricket world mourned the death of one of Australia’s finest young players, there was also considerable support for Abbott.

Friends and teammates of the NSW all-rounder, who made his international debut last month, are doing their best to make sure he is not left alone.

Abbott has been consoled by Hughes’ sister Megan, while Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland and former Test and NSW paceman Stuart Clark were among those to offer support to him after Hughes’ death.

A close family friend of the Hugheses said the family wanted Abbott to know he had done nothing wrong.

“We really want to support the bowler, Sean. He’s someone who we’re also considering at this time,” said Anthony Miles, who describes himself as Hughes’ “adopted older cousin”.

“Phillip would have said ‘good nut, bowl the next one’.”

While much of the public attention has focused on Abbott’s situation, it has been pointed out the bowler was one of 12 players on the field at the time Hughes suffered his fatal injuries.

His South Australian teammate Tom Cooper was at the non-striker’s end while former teammates Brad Haddin, David Warner, Peter Nevill and Nic Maddinson were only metres away when Hughes collapsed on the pitch.

Sutherland commended those involved in Australian cricket and the wider community for the concerns they had shown Abbott.

The boss of Australian cricket spoke to Abbott at a gathering attended by the Hughes family, current and former Australian and first-class players and cricket officials, held at the SCG members’ bar on Thursday night.

“Sean’s holding up really well. I had a chat to him last night and I was incredibly impressed by the way he was holding himself and his maturity,” Sutherland said.

“The point is this is not a moment in time thing. This is a grieving process and it’ll affect people in different ways.

“What we will do and the relevant experts will [do is] provide Sean with all the support he needs to work through this. Right now, I can say he’s holding up very well and I’m incredibly impressed with him.”

Clark said while Abbott was handling the situation now, he was worried how the player would react when left alone.

“It will be the hardest for him when it’s quiet and there’s nothing happening,” Clark told Sky Sports Radio.

“When he’s sitting at home at night before he goes to bed, that’s when the thoughts will start recurring in his mind.”

Former Test captain Mark Taylor said he hoped Abbott would be able to recover and continue his career.

“I hope he can forgive himself because the cricket community don’t feel that he needs forgiving,” Taylor said on the Nine Network’s Today show.

Phillip Hughes would have followed Hayden, Langer path, says coach

November 28, 2014 – 10:00PM

Jesse Hogan

Phillip Hughes’ first international coach is convinced he would have emulated and Justin Langer in overcoming early career hiccups to become a mainstay of the Test team.

Tim Nielsen coached Hughes, who was then “a brash 19-year-old coming out of the sticks”, in the winter of 2007 at Cricket Australia’s National Cricket Centre in Brisbane. Just over 18 months later Hughes was atop the batting order in South Africa in a Test team led by Nielsen.

“He made zero in the first innings, 75 in the second innings and the rest is history: two hundreds in Durban, where we won [the series] two-nil,” said Nielsen, now South Australia’s general manager of high performance. “There was a picture on the television that summed it up for me … he [Hughes] made that [maiden] hundred and you saw [Ricky] Ponting leaning out those big windows at Durban and doing the [passionate] clapping.

“From the minute he walked into the team people identified him as being the young kid that was pretty special, not too dissimilar to what happened with Michael Clarke in 2004. They grabbed hold of him and everyone gravitated to him.”

Nielsen said Hughes had provided an “awesome” influence on the Test squad in the following Ashes series, even after he was dropped for the third Test due to concerns he was too vulnerable against bouncers delivered by England’s towering pacemen.

“That was a tough tour of England. They had … big, tall quicks – [Andrew] Flintoff, [Steve] Harmison, [Stuart] Broad – and [Jimmy] Anderson was bowling well,” he said. “It was thought that the time might be right to give him a spell, to let him think and learn about how he was going to cope with those sorts of things … and at the time I wasn’t a selector but I didn’t think it was a bad selection. I thought it was quite long-term focused and to give him the best chance [to thrive].”

As well as providing a positive influence on teammates, Hughes’ other focus was to eradicate the flaws that triggered his omission. “To his credit, ‘Hughesy’ asked and talked about how he needed to improve and then decided that the only way he was going to force the envelope was to be better, and he continually did that,” he said.

The lowest point of Hughes’ career came in the 2011-12 season. Not only did he lose his Test spot after a disastrous series against New Zealand in which he averaged 10.25 in four innings, after which he pulled out of the Big Bash League to restore his shattered confidence, but he finished the Sheffield Shield season with an average of 28.56, clearly the worst of his career.

After then cricketing honcho Jamie Cox and coach Darren Berry implored South Australia to make the left-hander a compelling offer, it had to be ratified by the South Australian Cricket Association’s new chief executive, Keith Bradshaw. Having been at the helm of Middlesex three years earlier when Hughes dominated in a pre-Ashes stint in county cricket, Bradshaw endorsed the three-year offer ultimately accepted by Hughes, despite the bad season he had just endured.

“Phillip is a fighter. Under adversity he’s always shown his character, and the fact he never gives up,” Bradshaw said. “He never lost that ambition to play for Australia. We were very keen to have him come to South Australia because he’s such a talent. He’s a player who would’ve been one of the greats of all-time. We all saw that in him, and he felt, for his own development, that this was an opportunity for him to progress his career.”

Nielsen, who by that stage had left the national coach job and was charged with running the Redbacks’ academy, was an enthusiastic supporter, even though he was convinced Hughes’ domestic availability would be curtailed by his eventual return to the Test team.

“Great players don’t ever get it their own way. Hayden had four or five goes at it and Langer had four or five goes at it, [Steve] Waugh was 39 Tests before he made a hundred. All these great players took their time,” he said.

“There’s no template for making a great player. Each one will develop at their own pace and in their own time. What Hughesy always did, and what his first-class record proves, is whenever he was left out he went back and dominated, so he forced the hand of the selection panels to give him another opportunity, a lot like what Langer and Hayden … who turned out to be great players did in the early parts of their career.”

Conservative commentators Andrew Bolt, Alan Jones and Janet Albrechtsen turn on Tony Abbott

November 28, 2014 – 9:53PM

Lisa Cox

National political reporter

Conservative commentators appear to be growing increasingly frustrated with the Abbott government, as it struggles to present a coherent message leading into the final parliamentary sitting week for the year.

The Prime Minister said this week he wanted to clear a few policy “barnacles”, but by the end of the week it remained unclear which barnacles he was speaking of.

It was a difficult week for the government, which faced criticism over mixed messages about the future of its GP co-payment, its broken promise not to cut the ABC or SBS and comments from the Defence Minister mocking the government shipbuilder.

Janet Albrechtsen, Alan Jones and Andrew Bolt are among the prominent conservative voices to criticise the Abbott government this week for its struggles. All three commentators were among conservative supporters of Tony Abbott who were invited to Kirribilli House last year for a private function.

But in light of the government’s difficulties they have switched their aim.

“Another week. Another wasted opportunity by the Abbott government to score a political win. And another reminder of one of the simplest lessons in politics and life: respect is a two-way street. On that critical front, the Abbott government has failed time and again,” Albrechtsen wrote in her column for The Australian on Tuesday.

“What should have been an effortless political win this week turned into yet another political disaster.

“But instead of working through that initial error, the government played condescending word games.”

Janet Albrechtsen

On Thursday, Bolt wrote for News Corporation that the government was making “the same blunders that killed Julia Gillard” when it came to the ABC.

“What is so frustrating for those who wish Abbott well is that this disaster was utterly predictable – and, indeed, predicted,” Bolt wrote.

“In April, even though it killed me, I warned through gritted teeth that the government should honour its promise to the ABC.”

Earlier in the week, Bolt argued the government had developed a habit of apologising, “But apologising just signals another mistake was made. And this government apologises an awful lot, lacking confidence in its ability to prosecute an argument in the media.”

In an editorial last weekend, before the government became entangled over the $7 GP fee and ABC job losses, The Australian argued that “Mr Abbott and Mr Hockey appear tongue-tied” and had to “reboot their sales job.”

“Without a clear narrative, the task will be beyond him; his communications strategy is in disarray.”

And in an interview after the G20 summit a fortnight ago, Jones attacked the Prime Minister over the renewable energy target and for “failing the pub test” with elements of the free trade deal with China.

“To win an election – and you’re not worth two bob in opposition – to win an election, you’ve got to pass the pub test,” he said.

“PM, you don’t have a mandate for this.”

“The people who vote are the masters, aren’t they? They have given you whatever authority you’ve got – they don’t agree with this.”

Cricket Australia pledges immediate action on safety as cricket world pauses for Phillip Hughes

Phillip Hughes’ death has had such an impact on the cricket world that every Test- and cricket-playing nation had expressed their condolences to Cricket Australia, chief executive James Sutherland said on Friday.

Sutherland said the international response had been “enormous” since it was announced Hughes had died on Thursday afternoon. He was especially moved by a letter he received from Middlesex County Cricket Club in England, where Hughes played briefly in 2009 and averaged a staggering 143.5.

“He is and always will be fondly remembered here at Middlesex, even in the short time that he played for us. His average of 136.5 alone gives you an idea of the impression that he left on us. But most of all we remember a laid-back fun-filled young man who was kind to everyone and what a great talent he was,” the letter read.

The county’s cricket director, Angus Fraser, also penned a moving tribute of how the boy from Macksville made the seamless adjustment to life in London, aged 20. Keeping a promise to Hughes’  mentor, Neil D’Costa, Fraser would often ask the youngster what he had been doing.

“With a glint in his eye and a smile on his face he’d always insist he was great, the flat was fine and that he had had a quiet night in,” Fraser wrote on the club’s website.

“Like most Aussies he was ‘low maintenance’ and in the end we both just ended up laughing when I asked the question.”

Fraser said Hughes’ approach to the game was a lesson to many players his senior, describing him as a “tremendous competitor”.

Fraser recalled a confrontation Hughes had with the “formidable” former South African Test paceman Andre Nel during an innings of 195 against Surrey at The Oval.

“Nel had taken exception to the hiding he was receiving and bowled a beamer at Hughes,” Fraser wrote.

“Even now I still have this wonderful vision of the diminutive Hughes following the bear-like Nel down the pitch to inform the bowler he was: ‘weak, ******* weak, that is why

you quit international cricket to play for Surrey’. Nel did not turn round to take him on.”

Sutherland said the circumstances surrounding Hughes’ death would lead to an examination of  safety protocols.

While many have said no amount of legislation could have prevented the accident which caused Hughes’ death, CA said something needed to be done in the interests of cricketers around the world.

“Statistics say it’s clearly a freak incident but one freak incident is one freak incident too many,” Sutherland said. “That puts us in a position of looking into that.

“We will immediately, in consultation with the manufacturers and the other safety providers or regulators, look into it to make sure these things are addressed and improved.

“It’s a matter of interest not just for us here but for us in Australia and cricketers all over the world.”

The future of short-pitched bowling is set to be a hot topic, though it’s worth noting it was the lack of pace from a bouncer which deceived Hughes, who was attempting to play a pull shot.

“I think all of those things around safety need to be looked at and will be considered,” Sutherland said.

“One of the things about the game of cricket, it’s finely tuned balance between bat and ball, that’s what the game is built on and those things will need to be very carefully considered.”

Although it remains unclear if the first Test will go ahead, Sydney’s under 21 Poidevin Gray Shield competition will continue this weekend. Junior and club cricket will also go ahead.

CA has urged clubs and associations to observe a minute’s silence before each day’s play and for players to wear black armbands in honour of Hughes.

Junior competitions have also been asked to allow batsmen to retire on 63, Hughes’ score when he was felled on Tuesday, rather than the customary 50not out.

Although this has been one of the saddest weeks in the long history of the sport, Sutherland said cricket would emerge “stronger and better for this”.

He said it was difficult to know how kids around the country would react to Hughes’ death but said it would not stop fans around the country from continuing to love the game.

Departing Australian Taxation Office public servants threatened with two years’ jail over classified information

November 27, 2014 – 11:30PM

Noel Towell

Reporter for The Canberra Times


Thousands of public servants leaving the Australian Taxation Office have been warned that loose talk about their time at the agency might cost them two years behind bars.

But taxation bosses also want officials to use their redundancies as a chance to spill the beans on any crime or misconduct they might have witnessed in their years at the ATO.

The thousands of public servants are also being reminded, tactfully, that they should not take anything that does not belong to them when they leave.

A taxation spokesman said on Thursday that departing bureaucrats were being “reminded” of their legal obligations for their own good but would not say how many dob-in notifications had been made by workers on their way out the door.

Among the information pack provided to taxation officials leaving amid the agency’s massive downsizing program is an attachment outlining their “obligations on cessation of employment”, warning of the punishments for public servants who reveal classified information.

“The obligation to observe secrecy applies not only during your service with the Australian Taxation Office but also after you cease employment,” the warning states.

“Your attention is again drawn to the statutory provision and penalty which may be incurred in relation to any breach of security.

The document goes on to offer a polite warning against stealing government property.

“You are also reminded that you are obliged to return to your manager, any agency authority  and other documents or any other property of the Commonwealth which you may have,” it says.

An ATO spokesman said the warning against unauthorised disclosure was compulsory for staff with  security clearances and that the agency’s management had decided to extend it to all departing employees.

“For staff with a security clearance, the Attorney General’s Personnel Security Policy Framework requires that agencies demonstrate a separation process that ensures staff leaving an organisation understand their ongoing secrecy obligations,” the spokesman said.

“While this is specific to staff with a security clearance, we apply this process to all staff leaving the ATO to reinforce the importance of a robust APS security culture.

“On cessation of employment, all staff are reminded to be conscious of any ongoing obligations as an APS employee, such as the observation of secrecy provisions.

“This is designed to support staff to avoid any unintentional or avoidable disclosures.”

But the spokesman was coy about how many notifications of crime or misconduct had been made be departing officials.

“Exiting staff are also provided with contact details if they wish to report any matters relating to internal fraud and or serious misconduct within the ATO, that they may have observed while they were employed,” he said.
