An important message from the Senior Coach


RaffaeleLou2010SeptAn important message from the Senior Coach

I will be making changes to training, as it has become a little slack lately. From this Thursday onwards, I will be asking that all First, Second, Third, Fifth and Sixth Eleven players train twice per week until we start getting some wins on the board - especially the First and Second sides.
I don’t have a regular say in selection, but if it gets to the stage where we are still not winning games, I will be challenging captains on who gets picked, with criteria based on training attendances alone!
Too many players are having an easy ride and it needs to stop, before the season slips away on us.
From now on at training, no-one gets into regular training until laps and stretches are done. Training won’t be just about batting and bowling all night, either.
Hard yards will be done by all senior players to get us back on track - and if you can’t train, I need to be notified - not the captain or Chairman of Selectors. Any player who can't attend the two sessions will need to ring me or send a text message on 0450 181 948
The Firsts and Seconds are two more losses away from being out of the finals race, and heading towards the relegation zone - which would let all the hard work done over the last few season go down the drain.
All players need to report to me when they arrive at training, and I will delegate as required. All drills will be assigned by me and nothing will be started unless otherwise advised.
I have sat back, watched and let things go for the first few rounds, but enough is enough. We owe it to ourselves to tighten things up, focus and train hard to enable us to play to the potential we know is there.

Lou Raffaele.
Senior Coach,
Moonee Valley Cricket Club.
