Slav has been a passionate member of our club for over 20 years. During that time he has served as a player, junior coach, committee member, sponsor, and most recently has run our canteen on match days. For the last 3 seasons his role as our canteen manager has been immense. He has quadrupled our canteen profits during that time, which is a lifesaver for a club that sits in a low socio-economic area, where every dollar counts. He is at the canteen every Saturday and most Sundays from October to April, giving up his entire weekend for the club. In recognition of this, we’ve awarded him the Clubman of the Year 2 times running. We were forced to change the rules to allow us to award him a second time in a row, such was his contribution.

Slav is the go to point for every cricketer in the club, always there for anything they need. On game day he is our chef (his toasties are famous throughout Newcastle), physio, and on the tough days, our psychiatrist. He truly is the heart and soul of the club, and without him we may cease to exist.
