Dear SUCC Community,
It is with sadness that I advise that our General Manager, Dale Bryant, has decided to move on from SUCC after 5 seasons in the role.
Dale joined the Club in 2014. His passion for both cricket and the role was obvious during his interview when he flew down from North Queensland to spend the afternoon watching the SUCC 1st Grade team crumbling to be all out for 37 runs in the 1st Innings of the 2013-14 GF (which Uni went on to win in a thriller). Somewhere overlooking that spectacle at Hurstville Oval, an interview took place with Matt Phelps, James Rodgers and Rob Smithies.
Dale went about servicing the Cricket Club with both professionalism and dedication over the ensuing five seasons.
During his tenure, the Club has seen considerable success both on- and off-the-field.
On-field, the Club has won a Club Championship (2018-19) and seven premierships across the grades (all but 5th Grade). Off-field, he has overseen the development of the Club’s strategic plan; attracted new sponsors including current major sponsor, FDC Construction; guided improvements to the club’s event calendar including the Golf Day which saw numbers triple; ensured efficiencies in operating match days; placed a strong focus on the AW Green Shield (U16) program; created improvements to the club’s website; supported the transition to a new coaching structure; recruited talented people to the Club’s admin office and set about helping them achieve success; built strong working relationships with other Clubs, NSW Premier Cricket and Cricket NSW; and overseen a complex period for ground access with the loss of No. 2 Oval and diminished access to St Paul’s during construction work.
Dale leaves us to take a well-suited position of Senior Match Operations Officer with Cricket NSW, a role matched perfectly to his skills and passion. His final day with the Club will be the 14th August.
Please join me in thanking Dale for his service over the last 5 seasons and wishing him all the best for the future.
Naturally Dale’s departure leaves a big hole, and we are now actively recruiting for Dale’s replacement. Please be sure to pass on the below details to anyone you think would be a great fit to drive the club forward.
