In 2014 he was appointed as Ikageng Hub head coach and was instrumental in the success of hub program in Ikageng, where he produced a number players for our youth teams. He also coached the NW Under 13 boys, Under 16 boys and NWC rural team were he won a few accolades during his tenure. 

He started to coach the North West Rural Dragons team in the 2016/2017 season to date. During his time as coach of the NW Rural Dragons team he was very successful in implementing a winning culture. He won the Inland Rural Competition on four (4) occasions consecutively until last season. he also won the National Rural Week on 3 occasions, and he was always very proud of this achievement. Both these achievements have not been met by any coach in RSA. In total he won 28 games in a row as the coach of the NW Rural Dragons, a remarkable achievement for a provincial side. 

“He had a very good understanding of developing cricketers in the Pipeline. He was always cool, calm and collected. Under his leadership and mentoring a lot of young men become more accomplished cricketers and they all looked up to him as a coach, brother, and father. We as the NW Rural Family will miss our coach, brother, and friend.  William, rest in peace Brother” said Christo Gous (Chairperson of NWC – Cricket Committee).
