Season 2023/24 sees Nathan Shoesmith appointed as Senior Captain & Coach.

It is with great excitement we announce Nathan Shoesmith as the new Captain-Coach of the Rupertswood Cricket Club for the next two seasons.

Nathan achieved some wonderful feats during his eight years in Premier Cricket. We welcome Nathan and his partner Adele to the RCC family.

President PK: “I am over the moon to welcome Nathan back to the Club in a coaching capacity. To appoint a new coach who loves the Club so much is brilliant. I cannot wait to see what we can achieve. It’s exciting to be able to build on the foundations Piza has done so well to provide.”

Shoey bleeds yellow and blue. Always striving for excellence. One of Rupertswood’s favourite sons, we know this will be great news for all
