The Pirates would like to welcome our newest member Matt "HONDA" Hyden who has come on board the Pirate Ship as Captain Coach.

Honda comes to the Pirates from Brown Hill in the Ballarat Cricket Association where he came agonisingly close to winning the premiership last season but just falling short. He has represented BCA in Country Week as well as being twice a Representative for the Victorian Country Side opening the batting and also making a hundred v QLD when touring in Bunbury.

He brings a great wealth of cricketing knowledge and skill along with a fresh voice and approach that already has everyone around the club buzzing and jumping out of their skins to be involved.

Along with the appointment of Honda, Eiv Bowen has taken on the role of Director of Coaching which will encompass a complete overview as well as strategising a plan to move the whole club forward together with Honda.

A few new recruits will hopefully be announced in the coming weeks so it is very exciting times ahead for all Pirates. Please find attached the Pre Season Training Program with dates, times included.

As mentioned at the AGM there is a Pre-Season MEET THE COACHES DAY on SUNDAY 3RD AUGUST 3:00pm @ Canadian Bay Hotel which is compulsory for all players to attend to be breifed on the way the club is moving on field in this up-coming season.
