The magical bus trip home after our first win on tour. I will never forget the buzz we had on the way home. These are the moments you coach for!
Without doubt the player that made the most use of my arm was my good mate Hayden Pye-Redfearn. Hayden and I spent countless hours in the nets working on technique and approach and we developed a close relationship to the point I felt I knew his game better than him. We rode the waves of success together, both the highs and the lows and I'm very proud of the success he's currently having in the premier team
WCC tour of 2013. This was an initiative I was pleased to have got off the ground with the support of our sponsors
Carbo, another great mind that I was able to bring back & give a year of service to the club. One of the best coaches in Auckland
Captain Sam Bing. Most people wouldn't have seen us as a match but we formed a great partnership & he is an excellent student of the game with his own style. Sam was Premier Reserve grade cricketer of the year for the 2012/13 season.
End of season photo with my boys. We had a great 2012/13 season where we went undefeated for the last 2.5 months of the season
Happy times with the boys on tour. Nobody will ever be able to take those memories away
Another proud day for Liston College & myself having no fewer than 6 current or former students playing for the premier reserves.
The gentle giant Raja Sandu. A new recruit to Waitak and unfortunately I didn't get the chance to do a great deal of coaching with him but an outstanding young man none the less and I'm sure he will have a huge impact at the club.
Another mate of mine, Chris Fenner, was someone I was proud to bring back to the club this season. I hope it goes the way he wants and he achieves his goals
