Cameron Dunn (Reserve Grade Captain)
I am very passionate about cricket and have played since I was five, missing very few games ( as my cricket widow can attest to ) as I love the game.
Rick Spratt was my neighbor and Sean Lett was a bouncer at Harringtons, so Cadets was the only club for me to join back in 1992 upon leaving Tauranga Boys College. I had a great time playing for the club in what was a very productive period with a strong club on and off the field.
I emigrated to Australia in 2000 and resided there for 16 years. Whilst in Australia, I managed to play cricket all year round and captained numerous sides successfully in the Sydney and NSW Central Coast region until 2016 when I returned with my family to New Zealand whereupon we re-established ourselves in Tauranga.
After my first season back playing for Cadets, I had the honor of captaining a resurgent Reserve Grade side in the 2017/18 season and will lead the team again in the 2018/19 season where we are going to challenge again for top honors.
It is great to be back at the club and see the culture of Cadets has been retained and grown over the years. Personally, it is satisfying to be able to contribute something back to the club in my role as Captain and on the Committee.
Looking forward to the season ahead and welcome to any new players!
