A message from the President
Welcome to Season 2017-2018! Amazingly, the days are starting to get a little longer, the weather a bit warmer (on occasion), which means that cricket season isn’t too far away.
As a committee, we’ve been busy in the off season setting up for this season to be our most successful yet. Preseason training is about to kick off, construction is about to begin on the new nets and teams are starting to take shape! I am particularly excited about our new nets, which should be finished early in the season. We will all need to be a little flexible and patient as the nets may be out of action for a small part of the lead up and start of the season, however it will be great to welcome such a great new feature to the club.
I would like to make special mention of Dom Pius who stepped down as President at the AGM this year. Dom has done an amazing job as President over the last four seasons. Dom has committed countless hours in his role and been responsible for so many amazing initiatives and changes over the past few years and has left club in a really strong position. He will not go far, however, and will continue his role in the Executive Committee as Vice President.
I, personally, look forward to building on Dom’s solid foundation and continuing to take this club from strength to strength in all aspects, both on and off the field.
We are really proud of how are junior program has progressed over the past few years and are looking to accelerate the great momentum that has been built. We have made some small changes at a Committee level. Graeme Richings has taken over from Graham Matthews as Junior Coordinator. Graeme, through his experience in sporting clubs has already been a great asset to BTCC and has added another layer of structure to the junior program that we felt necessary to help develop on the foundations we have built over the past few years.
We, of course, cannot thank Graham Matthews enough for his commitment to the club over the last countless number of years. Graham has committed tireless effort and hours as Junior Coordinator over the past decade. He has helped grow our successful junior program on a number of levels, on multiple occasions and ensured an everlasting legacy will endure. Graham will remain our Head Junior Coach where he will focus his time on enriching our junior program by utilising his unrivalled cricket knowledge and passion for the game, to add to our great club.
We also welcome Craig McMahon to the committee for the first time. Last year, Craig rejuvenated a Veterans’ team back at Ted Ajani for the first time in a long time, and with his involvement in the Junior Footy Club will be a fantastic addition to the Committee.
With preseason just around the corner, make sure you get down to as many sessions as you can. I am personally looking forward to rolling the arm over with a Kookaburra ball again!
We are always on the look out for new players (in both Juniors and Seniors) so please feel free to bring friends and family down to the club or give me a call or email if you have any questions.
Look forward to seeing you down at Ted Ajani soon!
