Mark’s playing abilities speak for themselves; a former contracted Tasmanian Tiger and Ford Ranger Cup winner, back-to-back CTPL Premierships, a dual Emerson Rodwell Medalist and a Prime Minister’s XI cap; Mark has achieved plenty on the playing field.

During his playing days, he completed his Cricket Australia Level 3 Accreditation and has been honing his coaching skills ever since. He now has over 15 years of coaching experience, and with his deeply ingrained passion for coaching, he thrives on the coaching environment that HPCT provides. Mark believes strongly in the importance of developing a good relationship with players in order to help them get the best out of themselves, across all ages and abilities. He pioneered the HPCT Winter Academy program, and takes pride in it’s contribution of players to the Cricket Tasmania pathways programs and representative teams. He goes over and above to provide an exceptional service to his clients and we are very fortunate to have him leading our coaching programs.

What do you enjoy most about coaching cricket? Being able to support and assist players to achieve things beyond their own expectations. I am pleased to be able to provide a supportive environment and facility to the Tasmanian community.
Most respected player? Steve Waugh
Playing Highlight? Being a part of the Tasmanian Ford Ranger One Day Cup winning team. The opportunities to meet so many great people locally and internationally is something I look back at with great joy.
Coaching Philosophy? My coaching philosophy begins with demonstrating belief in all players. Cricket and sport is about achieving your personal best, so everyone is capable of doing this. My role is to then provide the environment, advice, drills and strategies to help the players learn. It is then about motivating and encouraging the players to make the necessary commitment to achieve their desired outcome.
