The former NSW batsmen and highest run scorer for the Waratahs was giving retirement a fair bit of thought, but ultimately was never going to walk away from the prospect of further success for our 1st grade side.
“I have been captain of our 1st grade side for the last 3 years, and feel that I have been improving every year” said Cruickshank. “This being my 4th season, I really feel like it’s time to shine and I will be able to bring out the best in our first grade side and the club as a whole.
“We have a hugely talented 1st grade squad. There’s plenty of experience with the likes of Beadle and Merchant, and plenty of up and coming talent with the likes of Edwards, Visser and Beatty. We had the team in 1st grade to win the competition last year, and with a few announcements coming shortly I feel we are going to be extremely competitive again this season.
“The club has been a huge part of my life, and I’m really looking forward to that being the case again this coming season”,
