Captains announced for Grade teams

Captains announced for Grade teams

The club has announced the captains for first to fifth grade with the Colts skipper to be announced soon. It is pleasing to have a group of both fine cricketers and great club men who will continue to install the values of our club. 

Club Captain Alex Patterson

First Grade

Harry Evans will captain first grade, however is only available for the first half of the season. Harry will be taking up a position with his work in London after Christmas, however to ensure a smooth take over Tym Crawford has been appointed vice captain to learn the ropes.

Second Grade

Nick Miller is returning soon from his second visit to the UK and will be taking the reins again in seconds. Hopefully Nick’s back will be OK to allow him to provide back up to the second grade attack.

Thirds Grade

The club is pleased to announce a new captain for our third grade side after Pat Effeney’s work load to too much to play this season. Liam McElduff has jumped at the opportunity and we look forward to his calm demeanour taking the thirds to the semis and beyond. Well done Liam.

Fourth Grade

The 4’s will again be led by Stuart Bromley who is busting to take the talented fourth grade side to a premiership. Stuart has shown a great skill to bring along the young players in his side and be the rock in the middle of the order.  

Fifth Grade

The world’s best fifth grader will again act as the world’s best fifth grade captain, and bring home the always well performing fifth grade team. 

Club Captain

As was announced at the AGM, the club has appointed Alex Patterson as the new Club Captain to replace Tym Crawford who has stepped aside after 4 excellent years. We are sure Alex’s enthusiasm for the club will rub off on the players and keep us moving ahead as a well-oiled unit. Dan Stickland and Ryan Tullia will continue in their roles on the Players Committee working with Alex to focus on being a voice for the players to the club’s executive committee.

We have the bases covered for 2019-20 season - Club announces coaching structure

We have the bases covered for 2019-20 season - Club announces coaching structure

It is only June and the Gordon District Cricket Club is announcing its coaching structure for the 2019-20 season. Who said there was an off-season. With the AGM about a month away it wont be long before the track suits will be out and the thoughts of our summer activities will be upon us. It is important however to let both existing players and prospects for joining our club that we will be increasing our coaching stocks for the coming season.

With the view of broadening our approach to our coaching and giving all grade players the opportunity to receive first class coaching assistance, the following group of coaches have been assembled for the season. 

Ben Preece

After joining our coaching staff last season, Ben will now take on the overall head coaching role while also becoming our First Grade match day coach. Before last season, Ben had a stint with Lane Cove Cricket Club, and is a former first class fast bowler with Worchestershire who settled in Australia in 2002 after a knee reconstruction prevented him continuing his first class career. Ben played in the Sydney Shires for South Sydney for 10 years which included winning 3 premierships before he took up the coaching role at Lane Cove in 2015. Importantly Ben also runs a Personal Training company in conjunction with his Original Bootcamp Outdoor fitness business. The players are aware of the great job Ben did with our conditioning last season and is looking forward to starting in the near future with this season's squad.

Trevor Chappell

We are pleased to announce that Trevor Chappell will be with us again this coming season and will concentrate primarily on 3rds, 4ths, 5ths and Colts. The club is very fortunate to have the services of Trevor who people tend to forget comes with a wealth of experience including 88 first class matches, 20 ODI’s (1983 World Cup) and three Test matches. Trevor also played for Australia in the 1977 to 1979 World Series which included a score 110 against the formidable West Indies attack. He has scored over 4000 first class runs with 150 for NSW against WA his best score. Trevor was also a very economical medium pacer who took 59 first class wickets. Our lower grade players will have direct access to Trevor and provide an excellent pathway for their success. Trevor also won the award as Coach of the Year at the NSW Premier Cricket Awards in 2017.

Mark O’Neill

Our long term former player, coach and Gordon Legend Mark O’Neill will again be coming down from his Central Coast hideaway to provide one on one specialist batting coaching for all grade players at the Shore Indoor centre at Northbridge. Again we are very pleased to have Mark provide this service for us as he continues to grow his squirrel grip business in Australia and overseas. Mark’s list of coaching achievements are extensive and we look forward to him taking our batsman to that next level as we push for that elusive club championship.

The club is pleased to have the services again this season of Mark Atkinson who will act as a specialist coach on batting, wicket keeping and fielding during the Tuesday sessions.

Mark did a great job last season and the players will be thrilled he is back.
