The KNCB have agreed a contract extension with Head Coach Ryan Campbell.

His original four-year deal was due to run out next month, but the parties have agreed a deal for an extra 18 months which will take him to the end of the World Cup Super League series, which culminates in a series against Pakistan at the end of next summer.

"Iím delighted that the KNCB have seen it fit that I continue on our journey together," said Campbell. 

"I feel we still have unfinished business and canít wait to begin the Super League and compete at the T20 World Cup.

"Our youngsters are ready to roll and our experienced players are jumping out of their skin to get back on the park and Iím extremely happy to be the one guiding themĒ.

The deal was widely welcomed with High Performance manager Roland Lefebvre delighted that terms had been agreed with the former Australian and Hong Kong international.

"Over the last four years, Ryan has done an amazing job with the National team and youngsters coming through. There are more players pushing for a position than ever before.

"The extension will allow Ryan to oversee the whole the Super League series which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The last series against Pakistan is scheduled to be played in the summer of 2022".

The Netherlands first matches in the series will be three home games against Ireland, currently scheduled for June 4, 7 and 9, but obviously fluid given the pandemic.
