Peter Sharp joins Parramatta

The Parramatta Eels have announced Peter Sharp has joined the club's football department to oversee squad list management.

The former Manly and Northern Eagles head coach, and 2014 Cronulla interim coach, has previously spent time at Parramatta as an assistant coach in three separate stints.

In his new role he will work alongside head coach Brad Arthur and head of football operations, Daniel Anderson, to oversee the list management for NRL, NYC and junior squads.

"Having someone of Peter's experience joining our football staff is going to be invaluable for us," Eels CEO Scott Seward said in a statement.

"He has a great rugby league mind and will bring a lot to our future recruitment and retention plans."

Sharp will focus on recruitment and retention across the club's football programs, as well as coaching strategies with the junior grades, the club said.

"I love the club, and I really think it's on the improve, and I'm excited to take this role on as a new career development for me," Sharp said.

"I think the talent in the Parramatta area is fantastic and untapped, and I’m looking forward to getting straight into things."
