Dominic Pius, President
After a one year hiatus, Dom has returned to the position of President in an ‘interim’ capacity. Dom’s previous 4 year legacy as President between 2013-2017 saw the Bullants dramatically increase its junior playing numbers and also introduce the Club’s first Junior Girls teams and Veterans teams. Dom has also run the Club’s Milo In2Cricket Program for the past seven years. Outside of cricket, Dom is an in-house lawyer at Melbourne Airport and enjoys spending his spare time (and money) traveling.

Matthew Hale, Vice President
Following a successful first year as President, Matt has stepped down from Presidency duties for the time being to spend more time with his young family. Matt became a father to Theodore (Ted) who was born on the morning of Senior Presentation Night in April this year. Matt took the skied catch at mid-off to take the tenth wicket which resulted in the Club’s first ever McIntosh Shield Premiership in 2008/09. He was also a member of the Shield Premiership team of 2011/12 against Vermont.

Graeme Richings, Junior Coordinator
Graeme came to BTCC when his sons Ben and Matthew joined the Milo program around 6 years ago. Graeme has previously played cricket for Strathmore CC in the West, and last year took on the all-important role of Junior Coordinator last season, which was one of BTCC’s most successful ever with 3 under 12s teams winning premierships. We look forward to Graeme continuing to create his own legacy with the junior program at BTCC over the next important phase of the Club’s future.

Santino Paolucci, Facilities Manager
Sam has arguably the most important job at the Club – feeding the boys on a Thursday night after training! Sam is a much loved character around both the footy and cricket clubs, and can be seen either behind the grill or in the canteen at most times throughout the year. Last year Sam was a deserved winner of “Club Person of the Year” (for the second time at BTCC).
