Jeremy Bray has left Denmark for a new role as Head Coach of Vanuatu.

The 47 year-old has been at the helm of Danish cricket since first accepting the role back in the summer of 2014.

The Australian born wicket-keeper batsman enjoyed a successful career with Ireland, for whom he played 83 times between 2002 and 2009, scoring Ireland's first World Cup century against Zimbabwe in 2007.

"After six fantastic years as National head coach of Denmark I felt it is now the right time for a new challenge and a fresh face to come in to take Danish cricket to the next level," Bray told CricketEurope.

"I am so grateful for the Danish Cricket Federation to have shown such faith in me over these years and wanting me to stay on longer.

"Special thanks to Alex Olsen the CEO of Danish cricket who is without doubt the most amazing boss and friend to work under who has shown immense loyalty to me over these years.

"Also, I'd like to thank Ole Roland, Peer Jensen, Lars and Morten Hedegaard who gave me the chance to start the fantastic journey as Denmark’s national coach.

"To see the amount of high quality applicants already showing interest in my vacated position shows just how enticing a role the Head coach of Denmark has now become. I leave with a heavy heart but know Denmark is in great hands with Freddie Klokker and the great young talent that is on show in the country.

"I now look ahead with great excitement in my new role as National Head coach of Vanuatu Cricket."

Vanuatu have been without a Head Coach for a year, and their CEO Shane Deitz has recently accepted a new role with the KNCB as their Women's Coach.
