Red Hill Cricket Club has sadly announced that Simon Dart will move on to a head new coaching role in Japan shortly, A state-contracted player in 2005-06, Dart’s brilliant club form of 1098 runs for Hawthorn-Monash University won him the 2004-05 Jack Ryder Medal, but he was unable to transfer his returns into a first-team promotion. The 42 year old will move shortly to the new role. It was reported on the 2nd September (according to the “The Sun/Herald”) that a contract extension had been signed.
