Having transitioned into coaching after his playing days, Delaney spent over five years with Cricket Australian Capital Territory (ACT), where he held various roles in talent pathways and coach development, as well as serving as the elite teams lead. His return to SACA earlier this year as the head of female cricket development and pathways paved the way for his elevation to the head coach position.

Delaney expressed his enthusiasm for the new role, emphasizing the talent and potential within the South Australian Women’s Team. “This is an incredible opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started,” he said. He highlighted the team’s readiness for success and expressed confidence in the group’s ability to achieve their goals.

Acknowledging the groundwork laid by his predecessor, Luke Williams, Delaney extended his gratitude for Williams’ support and the progress made under his leadership. He expressed excitement about the upcoming preseason training, which is set to commence on Monday, 17 June.

Luke Williams’ tenure as head coach of the South Australian women’s cricket team was marked by a clear commitment to player development and a drive for on-field success. His impact there is undeniable, twice in just four years, he guided the South Australian Scorpions to the finals of the prestigious Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL), showcasing the team’s growth under his guidance.
