All-rounders Tony Caccaviello and Matt Combe to coach Bullants in Horsham cricket

Leading country Victorian all-rounders Tony Caccaviello and Matt Combe will be joint captain-coaches at Noradjuha-Toolondo Cricket Club next season.

The appointment represents a major coup for the Bullants, keen to hit the ground running if and when Horsham association competition gets underway in spring.

The pair are good friends, having played together at Horsham Saints, Caccaviello a primary wicket-taking opening bowler for the Saints.

Combe has spent the past couple of seasons playing in Bendigo.

Caccaviello, also Cricket Victoria’s North and West Country manager, said the duo would have joint responsibilities at the Bullants, but Combe would most likely take on the main captaincy role.

“In talking to the club committee, members were keen to get some new ideas,” he said. 

“Matt and I have both played at different clubs and explored different ways to go about things.

“We’re looking forward to making training and playing cricket as enjoyable as possible. 

“If we try to achieve success through enjoyment and competitiveness it will be a good summer.”

The Horsham association is yet to appoint a new executive and board after all members stood down last year amid criticism over a season finish.
