Last season did not go as well as we had hoped after the success we had the year before. A combination of poor form and untimely injuries to a number of players led to us finishing outside of finals.
Captain: Chris Quelch
Gains: Younger players really stepping up and finding maturity in their game. Jack Leach comes to us also from the UK, a very promising left arm off spin option to compliment a promising attack.
Losses: We lost a number of players to other clubs and through retirement, however, this only opened the door for the next crop of A grade Roos to step up with more opportunities.
Predicted Finish: Premiers
Chris Quelch: “I am really excited about the 2015 season with the energy and youth around the group revitalizing. I see our batting as a strength with a lot of pressure coming from good young batsmen in all grades. The presence of 2 new bowling coaches has all seen our bowling group progress to the start of the season better prepared than ever. We look forward to once again be competing for finals success in all 3 formats.”
