Lou Raffaele is back as our senior coach
Moonee Valley Cricket Club has reappointed Lou Raffaele as our senior coach for the fourth season.
Lou's reappointment was ratified by the Club Committee following interviews at the North Suburban Club on July 13.
In announcing the reappointment, president Charlie Walker said the Club had shown marked improvement under Lou's leadership - with the top four teams making grand finals in 2009/10 and the Firsts and Seconds winning their flags.
"Stability and communication have been vital in our onfield improvement in recent seasons, and Lou's reappointment will ensure that this continues," Charlie said.

Lou said he was excited with the next phase in Moonee Valley's development, with our Firsts to play in the North Division in 2010/11 - just one rung below the top, metropolitan-wide division in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association.
Lou said he was just as excited by the young talent coming through the Club, with seven players aged 18 or under having played off in our Thirds Grand Final team on turf.
Lou is now finalising the pre-season training roster, and it will be posted on the website shortly.
We have not been able to have our return matches against the Lucknow Cricket Club at Bairnsdale this season, as we were unable to find a date that suited both clubs.
***Lou says new players are needed NOW for season 2010/11. Anyone wanting to play for our progressive and successful club, at any level, should ring Lou on 0433 383 387 or Charlie Walker on 0409 237 543.
