Frankston Peninsula Cricket Club is excited to announce the appointment of Paul Boraston as head coach for the next three seasons.
Paul is a very experienced Premier 1st XI Cricketer with a long and decorated playing career to draw experience from. Since his playing days concluded, Paul transitioned to become a successful senior assistant coach with Dandenong for the last seven years.
Playing highlights for Paul includes the 2006/07 Premiership where he received the John Scholes medal for player of the match after claiming 6/22, along with the 2006/07 T20 Premiership where Paul also received the player of the match medal after claiming 4/24 in the final.
He brings strong intelligence and awareness about the Premier Competition to be able to implement new strategies and methods at FPCC.
In response to his appointment, Paul commented that he is “excited by the challenge this brings and can’t wait to get started. Meeting the players face to face may be some time due to the current situation but I’m looking forward to on-line discussions and training. On-field results can turn quickly and I’m confident of seeing more wins on the board”.
In assessing the playing group, Paul said “the club is very young, and giving opportunities to these young players with talent, and just as importantly, the right attitude, will be a focus. Active recruiting and player retention will also be of high importance over the next few weeks.”
Paul also enforced that “we also want to produce players to play for Victoria, as that is what all players playing Premier should be ultimately striving for”.
Away from cricket, Paul is a highly respected PE Teacher and has a young family with wife Catherine.
The composition of the remainder of the coaching structure will be finalized in close consultation with Paul and announced very soon.
Please join us in welcoming Paul to the Heat!
