The gentle giant Raja Sandu. A new recruit to Waitak and unfortunately I didn't get the chance to do a great deal of coaching with him but an outstanding young man none the less and I'm sure he will have a huge impact at the club.

The magical bus trip home after our first win on tour. I will never forget the buzz we had on the way home. These are the moments you coach for!

Without doubt the player that made the most use of my arm was my good mate Hayden Pye-Redfearn. Hayden and I spent countless hours in the nets working on technique and approach and we developed a close relationship to the point I felt I knew his game better than him. We rode the waves of success together, both the highs and the lows and I'm very proud of the success he's currently having in the premier team

Carbo, another great mind that I was able to bring back & give a year of service to the club. One of the best coaches in Auckland

Captain Sam Bing. Most people wouldn't have seen us as a match but we formed a great partnership & he is an excellent student of the game with his own style. Sam was Premier Reserve grade cricketer of the year for the 2012/13 season.

End of season photo with my boys. We had a great 2012/13 season where we went undefeated for the last 2.5 months of the season

Another mate of mine, Chris Fenner, was someone I was proud to bring back to the club this season. I hope it goes the way he wants and he achieves his goals

My coaching passion at a competitive level really began with the Liston College first 11. Although I went to Waitakere College I am most proud of the time I spent at Liston and the school will always have a fond place in my heart

Me and Scott go a way back and we have been good friends for a long time. A great thinker of the game a truly dedicated club member. One of the best bowlers Waitakere has ever produced.

Without doubt Aaron Jeavons is the best cricketer I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. A man that knows what it means to succeed and a loyal bloke to match.

I've known Luke Hill since he was my captain as a forth former in first 11 cricket at Waitakere College. Perhaps the most natural cover drive I have ever seen #TheBigEasy

Love this boy - "The Tongan Stallion" Tes Taliauli. I've coached Tes since he was a 3rd former at Liston College and I have enjoyed every moment of it. Right up there as one of the most naturally talented young men I have ever coached and a lovely person to boot.
