Well done to Tim Paine for the vital role he played in helping the Australian Test team win the Ashes this week.
Tim and his family have played a major role at our club for the past 20+ years, firstly as a young teenager coming through our junior program, and then subsequently as a representative cricketer and a leader of our club.
We are all aware of the significant challenges Tim has had to face over the past few years and it is a credit to him that he persevered through these times and when given the opportunity he has taken it with both hands (literally!).
His role around the club in recent years has been pivotal both on and off the field, demonstrated by him scoring 1972 runs at an average of 56 in the past 5 seasons since returning from injury, and the key role he played in reshaping our coaching structure in the most recent off-season.
Keep it going Painey and we look forward to watching you play in many more games for Australia!
