A quick update on our forthcoming season…
We now have another qualified coach joining us this season. His name is Sean Fitzgerald and he is a bit of a superstar having been Coach of the Year for the South West of England in 2012. Formerly, he was a Dorset Minor Counties Wicket Keeper/Batter and is the last person to have represented Dorset at Senior Level Football and Cricket!
Sean is now a full time cricket coach and amongst other things is the Community Coach with the Dorset Cricket Board for North and West Dorset. We are rather fortunate to have grabbed his services.
As he can only help us on Friday evenings, that decides our weekly training evening. This year’s registration is on Friday 12th April followed by practice evenings every Friday evening 6-7:30. We recognize this may not suit everyone, but given the quality that Sean brings it is the right thing to do and we really hope everyone will manage to accomodate this. If there is anything we can do to help, please do let Simon Dodd know.
Sean and Simon are now working on training plans for all the players. If anyone hasn’t yet replied re being part of the Buckeroos this season, please do so ASAP.
