Special Mention: Thank you Simon for 12 years of service as Club Manager!

After 12 years in the role of Club Manager Simon Poole has decided to not renew his contract and will relinquish his position on May 31st.

Simon commenced in this role in 2006 following our Centennial and has been a major driving force in not only the day to day running of the club but the success and progress we have made and continue to make.

With the removal of our own clubrooms during the 2009-2010 season and we as a club not being able to utilize the now Kolmar Centre till late 2011 he saw us through some incredibly turbulent times particularly off the field as our club was severely impacted both financially and playing numbers wise.

Through this period and ever since he has continued to make sure we always have teams on the field, gear provided, junior teams transported and that the club was in good heart and spirit so we could function as a club again.

Simon’s service and dedication well surpassed the remuneration and the hours this “part time” role was meant to be, but his sole drive in the role was for the betterment of our club and his love for Papatoetoe Cricket.

He has continued his coaching and his involvement with Manukau Districts Cricket, flying the Papatoetoe flag supporting our junior club throughout this time.

In 2010 Simon was made a Life Member of Papatoetoe Cricket Club

Along with the day to day roles it’s the unseen hours and time Simon has sacrificed, attending meetings with the ACA, representing our club at user group, and grounds meetings, liaising with the groundsmen being a handyman and go-to guy around the centre that many don’t see but most of us expect someone to do.

Personally I have known Simon for over 35 years from our playing days to more recently as the 6 years as Chairman of our club, his integrity, passion, drive and commitment for our club I cannot thank him enough for, he has been great to work with and will be missed, we as a club are truly indebted to Simon.

We as a committee will now be working through the direction and roles required to fill this position and will use this as a time to refocus on what is required to continue to progress the club forward and meet the needs of our membership, we would encourage any feedback or suggestions you all may have.

Simon, on behalf of all of our club I thank you for all the roles you have filled and all that you have done during the last 12 years, I know you will not be lost to us and I look forward to you now being able to enjoy your role as a Life Member and supporter of our club.


Peter Boyd,
Chairman Papatoetoe Cricket Club
