Liam Freeman – club overseas 2018

We are delighted to announce the impending arrival of Australian Liam Freeman (25) as our overseas player for 2018.

Liam grew up on a sheep station and was home schooled for 6 years before moving to Wentworth, New South Wales at the age of 11, boarding with family friends to attend high school.

His mother Caroline Freeman said “he had the cutest curls which I couldn’t bear to cut off, and thus, his first day at high school was sporting one of the best mullets in the outback. It wasn’t long before he was given his nickname, which he is still well known by today – MULLET.”

After years of back yard cricket with his dad Phil and brother Justin, he got his chance to play for Coomealla Wentworth, as a junior. He started as a bowler, but became very gangly (all arms and legs) and his action suffered, so became a batsman.

Liam has played for Coomealla Wentworth CC, Mildura since the 2007/2008 season. He is regarded as a useful top order batsman, who bowls a lively medium pace. He was joint leading wicket taker, this season, with his brother, Justin – having taken 18 league wickets in 12 matches, at an average of 17.61.

Last season, Liam finished as one of the top 10 players in the Sunraysia district. However, this year has been a difficult season with the bat.

Liam is due to arrive in the UK on the 18th April, in time for the first friendly at home against Broadbridge Heath, on Saturday 21st April.

We are extremely happy to have Liam represent the “Horses” and look forward to him (and the rest of the club) having a highly successful season.

His preferred drink is Scotch, but will also drink beers.

Welcome to Findon, Mullet !

Rest assured, we won’t be calling any of our league games off due to the temperature exceeding 43•C.

Matt Machan – club coach

Findon Cricket Club appoint Matt Machan as club coach

Findon Cricket Club has teamed up with the former Sussex and Scotland International cricketer.

FCC are delighted to announce that Matt Machan will become the cricket clubs lead coach for the 2018 season. Matt will be coaching throughout the summer on Tuesday and Friday nights spreading his time between the senior teams and all junior age groups. This is massive coup for the club to bring in such a high quality coach. The knowledge and experiences Matt will provide will undoubtedly aid the development of our juniors and senior players. We think this will also put us above other clubs in the area by being able to provide high quality coaching available to all playing members and help with recruitment for future players.

After retiring from professional cricket last summer through injury Matt came in and did a number of sessions with our juniors at the back of last summer and became an instant hit with kids and parents alike.

Matt will be coaching our 3 senior sides plus the u17 and u19 squads on a Tuesday night, and will also be coaching our juniors on our new junior night up the club starting on Friday 20th April, which will run throughout the summer term.

Alongside his club commitments Matt will also be available for 1 to 1 sessions, group training sessions to all FCC members up the club during the summer, plus Matt has secured the facilities at Arundel Castle for 1 to 1 sessions and small group sessions during the Easter holidays available to all FCC members on first come first serve basis.

If you are interested in any additional coaching and sessions with Matt please check out his website at www.precisecricketcoaching.com and get in touch with Matt at matt@precisecricketcoaching.com should you have any questions.
