After joining our coaching staff last season, Elliot Richtor has been appointed head coach, a role which includes the responsibility of first grade match-day coach. Els coached our Poidevin-Gray Shield team last year, leading the team through a very successful season, which culminated in our first PG’s premiership for 45 years.
Elliot had a long and successful career in first grade for Gordon, scoring 3,570 runs at an average of 30.51 between 2009 and 2019 and taking 57 wickets with his medium-pace bowling. He scored 787 runs in the 2016-17 season and took 22 wickets at an average of 17.82, and was awarded the O’Reilly Medal as NSW Premier Cricket Player of the Year in 2017, sharing the award with team-mate Mason Crane.
Elliot will be supported by our new Assistant Coach Nick Miller. They will work closely with our new Director of Cricket, Mark Carmichael, to help our players perform at their best in the upcoming season.
