Colin O'Reilly joins Keanes Killorglin as player/coach

Killorglin CYMS basketball club have announced Colin O'Reilly as player and head coach of Keanes Supervalu Superleague team for the upcoming 2019/20 season.

O'Reilly has extensive experience, in Ireland and abroad, as a player and coach, and the Killorglin club says it is delighted when O'Reilly approached them as "we believe that his addition to the team will inevitably elevate the club to greater success going forward."

O'Reilly said: "The club have shown nice progression over the past few years and something that really interested me in the role is the challenge of using the momentum built already and adding to success on and off the court.

"The ambitions of the club are high and I believe is a situation that can bring out the best in both the club and myself as where we both are in development terms. With all new challenges there's always a small presence of the unknown which helps focus the mind into ensuring all angles of the preparation are covered and in place before pre-season kicks off and the fun of trying to maximise a groups potential begins."
