NEWSFLASH!!!The Inspirations Paint Devonport Orions are delighted to announce the first round of coaching appointments for the upcoming 2019/2020 Cricket North West season.Our senior men's coach will be MATTHEW BENNETT and our women's coach will be SAM FOGG.Matthew is in his fourth season back at the club, and last season captained the 1st Grade team to the semi-finals, where they suffered an agonising draw to eventual premiers Burnie.Matthew also has previous coaching experience at Don in the MVCA.
Following on from the huge amount of work done by Susan Underwood to get our women's program back up and running again, Sam brings his vast knowledge of the game into the role which is set to enhance the players' skill set.
Pre-season training dates and times are in the process of being finalised and will be announced in the coming days, along with further announcements on coaching staff for the 2019/2020 season.
The club would also like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing senior men's coach Stephen Lee, who has stepped down after a stellar six-season stint in the role which saw the club win a CNW 1st Grade premiership, a Greater Northern Cup premiership, a CNW T20 premiership, four CNW 2nd Grade premierships, and two CNW 2nd Grade T20 premierships. Thank you for your time and efforts in a such a demanding role Gyps, and we look forward to seeing you at the Oval throughout the season.
