BARANDUDA has appointed Craig Scammell as coach for the next three seasons.
Scammell will take over the leadership role from Mitch Ryan with the Rangers likely to announce several signings for the Cricket Albury-Wodonga district season in coming weeks.
It will be the long-time New City player’s first crack at senior coaching.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Scammell said yesterday.
“We start training on the first Sunday in August and I can’t wait to get into it.”
Besides New City, Scammell also spent a decade with Canberra club Queanbeyan and a season with Tallangatta and Wodonga Raiders.
Baranduda president Mick Hardman said Scammell would bring plenty of experience to the Rangers.
“His experience is invaluable,” Hardman said.
“He’s a long-time Provincial player and from that point of view it provides us with a rock to build around.”
Baranduda dodged the wooden spoon last season when it defeated Dederang in the penultimate round of the season.
