TO ALL PLAYERS AND SUPPORTERS
APPOINTMENT OF SENIOR COACH NICK SPEAK
The Dandenong Cricket Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Speak as Senior Coach for the next 2 seasons.
Nick brings to the club a wealth of experience having played county cricket for both Lancashire and Durham between 1986 and 2001, captaining Durham in 2000. In all he played 177 first class matches making 9692 runs including 15 centuries.
In 2008 he was appointed assistant coach/batting coach at Melbourne Cricket Club, and in his 6 years at the Demons he helped them secure two 1st XI flags and numerous lower grade premierships and club championships.
Nick is keen to take on the challenge of strengthening our first eleven to become a serious contender in premier cricket, with the obvious goal of playing and being successful in finals cricket. As well as this he wants to ensure that the club’s priority of player development in all grades remains a key focus.
Michael Findlay (President) said; “It is exciting to have Nick return to Shepley oval in a coaching role. To have a cricket person of his calibre take over the good work of Ross Woodall is exactly what we were seeking. We know that Nick will re-invigorate the top two grades and develop the talent so evident through our lower grades.”
