Senior Coach Announcement
Date of Event Taylors Lakes Cricket Club : Tue Jun 8, 2021 5:13PM

It is with great pleasure that I would like to announce the appointment of Alex Deuchar to the role of Head Coach at Taylors Lakes CC for season 2021/22. As the new Head Coach Alex will head up the Coaching Panel Structure.


Alex joins us from Premier Club Kingston Hawthorn, where he has been in the role of Senior Club Bowling Coach & Senior Club Assistant for the past 2 seasons, he was also the first XI captain in season 2019/20. Prior to his stint at Kingston Hawthorn Alex was Senior Bowling and Senior Assistant Coach at rival VSDCA club Mount Waverley, in addition he also was the Head of Junior Coaching Development (including coaching the clubs JG Craig Shield team), and amongst his many achievements is that he captained Mount Waverley during their premiership year.


Alex originally hails from the UK and learnt his trade at Darlington CC and Durham County Cricket Club, who he represented in Under 19’s, prior to relocating to Melbourne.


This is a really exciting appointment for TLCC, as we embark on our 6th season in VSDCA. We look forward with anticipation to the start of the 2021/22 season as we unveil our new look coaching structure and recruits in a new era and direction for the Lions. 


We look forward to Alex’s experience as Coach as well as an on field leadership role, as a Player.


Please extend a warm welcome to Alex as he joins the Taylors Lakes CC family.
