For the current 2016/17 season, as President of Phoenix Cricket Club I am very much looking forward to an exciting year ahead. We have been able to regain the services of, in my opinion, the best coach in the competition with Peter McGillivray.
Peter, or Macca as he is affectionately known around the club, has coached Phoenix in our golden years where we were club champions 4 out of 5 years and won premierships in all grades. So get behind him guys and success that has been lacking over the last couple of years will come.
With a lot of hard work by the committee and coach this year, we have been able to grow as a club and increase our number of sides from 5 to 6, which to me this is a great achievement. I encourage all current players to keep training hard and attending social events, to ask for the support of all our non-playing members, our life members and their families to do the same and attend our social events; I also ask all of our sponsors to continue with their fantastic support of our club and we will be successful on and off the field, not just in this year, but many, many years to come.
As President my key goals for the upcoming season and long term goals are to;
* Develop a culture of success
* Encourage fellowship
* Be Family friendly
* Continue to develop our Junior club and entrench close relations
* Provide the best possible coaching for all player regardless of grade
* Encourage the youth
With our goals being met we will go from strength to strength at Phoenix and we will become the success and power-club we all want to be. The Phoenix CC spirit and environment will always be one where we are friendly, inviting, caring, supportive, a winning attitude and put our members above all else.
"Everywhere we go'!
