Maddinson joins Easts as Junior Ambassador11-Jul-2014
Easts Dolphins are excited to announce that NSW and Sydney Sixers star Nic Maddinson has joined the club.
The left-handed batsmen is still only 22 years old, despite having already played 38 first-class matches and represented Australia in T20 cricket.
Aside from playing for Easts when his representative duties permit, Maddinson also joins the club as an ESCC Ambassador for Juniors with a view to helping grow, develop and promote the game in the local area.
ESCC is currently one of only two grade teams in Australia to administer a junior cricket club as well as a senior club under its central Committee of Management. Last season ESCC Junior Club rose to over 650 members.
Maddinson, is enthusiastic about helping the game grow in the Eastern Suburbs region he now resides in.
"I am very much looking forward to it. Easts has a proud and rich history and has produced some very good cricketers over the last few years. Hopefully I can help Easts win a few premierships along the way".
"I also look forward to working with the Easts Dolphins Juniors in helping provide positive pathways for the junior cricketers to help improve their games and progress them into ESCC senior grade cricket club and then hopefully higher cricket ranks from there".
Maddinson will also get the chance to work with club coach Michael Bevan, who was himself a talented young left-hander from the country before going on to win two World Cups and being one of Australia's leading domestic and international batsman.
Easts President Jim Maxwell believes the signing of Maddinson is a great move for the Senior and Junior Cricket Clubs.
"Nic's arrival at Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club is met with great enthusiasm. He has advanced cricketing skills and we look forward, through our strong cricket and off field networks, to aid his own on going development. I know there will be some very excited Easts Junior Cricketers who want to meet and work with Nic. There are a lot of great things happening at the club. We welcome Nic on board to be part of it all"
