CCC Signings for 2018/19 Announced

Hi All

The recruitment committee has been very busy for the past 6 months working towards getting the best team on the park for the first XI for the coming season. We have also filled the senior coaching vacancy left by senior coach Ash Chawla departing for work reasons.

Coaching

We have appointed Ajay Bhatt as senior coach for 2018/19. Ajay was assistant coach at Premier Club Prahran last season. Ajay has heavily involved with junior development at Prahran so he will be great with our wealth of junior players that are starting to play senior cricket. Ajay is a very experienced high level coach and continue our clubs focus on coaching and player development.  He suits a large growing club like CCC perfectly. He is also a very experienced district and sub district player and will take plenty of wickets in the first XI.

Captain

After a successful first season as captain of the First XI last season, Vinay Tripathi has agreed to skipper the side again. He also brings a wealth of experience to the roll with prior district cricket and Victorian 2nd XI experience. Vinay also had a top season in the CSB last year.

Returning Players

CCC has worked very hard to retain our existing players who made the semi final in our first season in to top level championship division. The below returning players have signed with CCC for the coming season:

Abhi Sharma (Hard hitting top order batsman, 400 runs in the 1st XI last season)

Tatsat Brahmbhatt (Very quick opening bolwer, 25 wickets in the 1st XI last season)

Tej Gandhi (Top order bat and front line left arm off spinner)

Ashish Harsolia (Top level wicket keeper and middle order bat)

International Players

Jon Burden is joining us from the UK this season. Jon is a tall quick opening bowler that is keen to take wickets in the CSB. Jon has played County 2nd XI this season and will come here in good form.

CCC Jnr Newsletter February 2018

Neggie of the Month

The Neggie of the month is an important monthly award within the club. Each month we present an award for efforts above and beyond the call of duty. We are a big club and to keep everything running smooth we need everybody to pitch in an assist.

The winner for December 2017 was Hilton Duncan, Hilly can be seen working hard early in the morning on match days getting Lord ready for play and getting sponsor signs and barriers out at KP. Hilly is also always cleaning, this is a never ending task in a big facility like ours. If you see him around see if he needs any assistance.

The winner for January 2018 was Tarun Grandhi, Tarun runs the nets for senior cricket both Tuesday and Thursday, this is not an easy job with 50+ at training. Everybody wants a bat as we all know! He also calculates all our stats, awards and assists with subs collection (very important roll). Not to mention he can be seen assisting behind the bar/kiosk.
