Sunbury Cricket Club is proud to announce the appointment of Dylan Wright as Senior Captain / Coach for season 2017/18.
Dylan’s background includes stints in Premier cricket in both Melbourne and Adelaide. He has played in a McIntyre Cup premiership and most recently played in a 1st XI Premiership in Wodonga the season before last. He brings to Sunbury playing and coaching experience from both football and cricket and is excited on his appointment as Sunbury Roar look to go one better in the coming season.
Dylan’s coaching philosophy has a strong emphasis on improving technique in all aspects of the game. Cricket is a sport where there are a lot of closed skills put together in an open environment and he believes if we can get as close as we can to perfecting those skills then we are going to go along way towards putting ourselves in winning positions every time we step onto the field. In saying that this pre-season is going to be very much focused on working on our deficiencies and where we can improve.
SCC are holding a “Meet the Coach” golf day / catch up at Macedon Golf Club on the 30th of July. Following that we will be our first “cricket” session which is Sunday the 6th of August at the nets. – weather permitting of course.
My advice though would be that within the next couple of weeks if you haven’t already grab a cricket ball & start tossing it around when you can. Also grab your bat and get used to that feeling. After all that’s why we play the game. Play a few shadow shots.
With a new coach comes with a fresh start, I don’t know anybody & I have no pre conceived perceptions about pigeon holing certain players in certain grades. This is a massive opportunity for the individual to step up and grab their chance.
Selection will be based around training attendance & attitude. No matter who you are & how good you think you are.
Finally – Attitude is a choice and how you perceive yourself is how others will perceive you. So I ask you, what’s your brand? What do you stand for?
Mediocre application = mediocre results.
There’s no ceiling in life. Only what others try to tell you what your limits are.
My advice to you all is to empower each other by using positive reinforcement and really get around each other. Life is hard enough without feeling as though our mates don’t have our back. I really want to know you all have my back. I know I already have yours.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
Senior players wanted
This is the perfect opportunity for senior grade players new to the area, sick of travelling to town each week or for those wanting to make a stamp on the competition in a team with some great players mixed in with stars of the future. Come and join new Coach Dylan Wright and up and coming young players such as Stephen Treweek and Jack Landt and be part of what is to be an exciting season.
Our club has also a strong Juniors program with an emphasis on parental involvement.
Sunbury Cricket Club fields four junior teams. It is this commitment to junior cricket and the promotion of healthy activity in a family environment that ensures a successful future for the club and an attractive environment for new families to the area.
We are the envy of the competition being based at the Clarke Oval which is currently having the players facilities refurbished and we have the use of the Sunbury Bowling Club for after match activities and functions.
