At Mount Lawley District Cricket Club (MLDCC), our coaching team is the driving force behind our success on the cricket field. They bring expertise, dedication, and a passion for the game that's truly inspiring.
In our "Coaches Corner" series, we're excited to introduce you to the brilliant minds moulding our cricket stars of tomorrow. Through a series of brief but insightful questions, you'll get a flavour of their cricket journeys, coaching philosophies, and the invaluable wisdom they impart to our players.
This week we have the pleasure of introducing:
Where did you play most of your cricket growing up? Swan View CC & Helena Halley CC (Community). Midland Guildford Cricket Club (District). Guildford Grammar (School).
As a player your cricketing skill was… Top Order Batsman.
Three (3) people you would have to dinner? With 4 kids I'd just like to take my wife Holly out for dinner.
How long have you been at MLDCC and what is your coaching level and role? This is my 5th year at MLDCC, 3 as a player and 2nd as a coach. My role is 1st Grade Squad Coach & level is Cricket Australia High Performance Level 3.
Why do you choose to coach cricket? I coach cricket as I've always loved the sport and enjoy seeing players develop into something more than they feel they probably could.
What is your coaching philosophy? Cricket is a simple game complicated by a few muppets.
Beyond team success, what is your coaching aspirations for your team this season? Hold the culture the squad was able to develop last season through adversity. With new players in, it will be interesting to see how that goes!
What values do you believe contribute to a good team/club culture? Respect. No single person is bigger than the team/club.
Join us again for the next instalment of “Coaches Corner” where we continue uncovering the unique stories, experiences, and knowhow that make our coaching staff an integral part of our MLDCC cricketing family.
