Our progressive and forward-thinking Club requires a coach, and assistant coaches, for Season 2007/08.
We are one of the largest clubs in our region, and in 2006/07 fielded 20 senior and junior teams.
Our Club has been at the forefront of innovative practice in recent seasons, including being a forerunner in Sunday turf cricket, and in encouraging past players back to cricket.
In the past four years we have added a new senior team each season through innovative and targeted recruiting. Our Club has also been at the forefront of retaining its juniors and moving them successfully through to senior cricket.
Our Club is based at Ormond Park, Pattison St, Moonee Ponds, with secondary facilities at Debney Park in Flemington.
