Sunrisers announced the appointments of Luke Pomfret and Cain Hamilton-Boyle as senior regional talent manager and emerging player talent manager respectively. They started their roles on October 1, and have since begun "the observation process" for the academy and emerging players programmes.

Danni Warren, Sunrisers' regional director for women's cricket, said that the appointments of Pomfret and Hamilton-Boyle are key to their development plans across the region. "To have two talent developers with their passion and experience of the local landscape is a huge asset to us."


"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with both Luke and Cain since they started at the beginning of October and cannot wait to see the positive impact that will have on women and girls across our region,” Warren said.

Pomfret earlier worked at Northamptonshire CCC where he held the role of pathway performance coach, assistant Women’s 1st XI coach and academy coach. He also worked as the women and girls’ pathway scout for England and Wales Cricket Board and also as the assistant coach for Loughborough Lightning. 

Pomfret, who has championed the women's game since his early days, was awarded the Chancellor’s Scholarship from his university for his effort in promoting the participation of women in cricket among the community.


Cain, on the other hand, has worked with the Bedfordshire and Huntingdon girls’ county age group. Earlier, he was working as the performance and community coach at Cricket East.  In 2019, he was selected as the 'ECB Young Coach of the Year' award for his work within the Bedfordshire CCC girls county age group program and performance pathway.
