MANAGERS: Western Australia and Perth Scorchers cricket teams coach LACHLAN STEVENS has resigned admitting the season's start has been "extremely challenging." The Western Australian Cricket Association said that Stevens recently advised them that "he would not seek reappointment" at the end of the season, but has since decided he should go now (THE AUSTRALIAN, 11/7). In Perth, Ben Papalia reported that Australia's assistant coach and batting coach JUSTIN LANGER will replace Stevens. The WACA is also looking to hire WA "great" ADAM GILCHRIST as Langer's assistant (PERTH NOW, 11/7). ... Football coach KIM PAN-GON "has been given six months to prove his worth" after taking charge of the Hong Kong national team for the second time in three years.
