We are pleased to announce Ben Speake as Senior Coach for season 2017/18.
Ben came to Seddon CC at the start of last season, immediately making an impact with over 600 runs for the season, including the unforgettable 216 in the Grand Final win over Sunshine United. Ben also impressed with his on and off field advice and leadership to Mark Webb and John Taylor throughout the season.
Ben has previously coached in New Zealand and the UK, and is an accredited Level 1 coach. Along with the experience that Ben brings to the role as Senior Coach, Ben has recently played in the VTCA Senior Division, with an understanding of the commitment required as the 1st X1 make the step up to the highest grade.
John Taylor will also remain as 1st X1 Captain for the upcoming season. Mark Webb has elected to stand aside as Senior Coach due to work commitments, but will remain in a leadership role as Assistant Coach. The committee would like to formally thank Mark for his efforts in guiding the 1st X1 to the VTCA North West premiership last season.
In the next couple of weeks you will hear more news from the senior leadership on pre-season training and other exciting developments leading into the season ahead.
We wish Ben and John all the best for the 2017/18 season.
