This weeks round marks a milestone to remember. Cricket Victoria have confirmed that this round is Michael O'Sullivan's 500 game as coach and player in Premier Cricket. What an amazing effort and achievement.
His figures look like this..
Played 217 games
Northcote 211 and Nth Melbourne 6
Coached 283 games
Northcote, Nth Melbourne, Footscray, Victoria and Fitzroy Doncaster Cricket Club.
He has had many achievements and accolades as coach along the way, and of course his most recent back to back victories as coach of our great club figure prominently.
His ability as a coach of young men who become great young men is his most obvious gift. His is able to galvanise a group of sportsmen behind a common goal and is then build the belief into every player that their contribution is valuable, no matter how small. We all love him and feel blessed that he walked into the door at the club 4 years ago, regardless of any on field success.
GO MOS and GO LIONS.....
