"I’m really looking forward to taking on the role as coach this season. This is an exciting opportunity in a club that had some great success last year with both the 1st and 2nd XI’s making the finals after coming up into Senior Division and the 4th XI narrowly losing the grand final. I feel I have a lot to contribute in a broader leadership position and I’m looking forward to the challenge" Josh said.

Charlie has moved to Thailand, for personal reasons, and we hope to see him on
a visit to the country when he visits his sons, Andrew and Chris, who were both
We wish him the best on the next leg of his journey through life, and I am sure he
