Date of Event Essendon Maribyrnong Park Ladies Cricket Club: Mon Jul 1, 2019 7:03PM

The EMPLCC Executive Committee is pleased to announce the club’s Coaching Panel for 2019/20.


We are excited to announce that joining last season’s panel will be Natalie Schilov, who has been appointed to the role of 1st XI coach. An EMP Life Member and ‘veteran’ of over 200 Premier Firsts matches, Nat’s role will lead midweek trainings and oversee the 1st XI side as they strive to return to finals action.  


Neil Gray returns to the role of Coaching and Program Director.  His passion for the club after just one season has been infectious and we are looking forward to seeing the role further evolve.  Neil will be responsible for managing the program structure, training content and individual player plans. Neil will also be responsible for providing training support to the other coaches, co-ordinating specialist sessions and team selections.


Lyndall Daley returns to the role of 2nd XI Coach. The former first-class cricketer has had an enormous impact in her first two years at EMP with her knowledge and commitment to the development and growth of players an outstanding asset for the Bomber playing group.


Responsible for continuing to develop the EMP/Williamstown Congs partnership, Sonja Jenkinson takes on the role of 3rd XI Co-Ordinator. Her passion for the game, outstanding organisational skills and ability to mentor a young group makes Sonja an invaluable member of the EMP Coaching Panel. Her value to the club recognised at last season’s awards night with the entire Jenkinson family awarded the ‘Keanest of them all’ award for the best club person.


We are also extremely fortunate and excited to appoint representative stars Elyse Villani and Kristen Beams to the positions of Specialist Coaches.  Elyse will deliver specialist support throughout the season with a focus on batting and tactical decision making while Kristen will focus on fielding and overall game sense.


Welcome and congratulations to all our coaches for 2019/20!
