The Margaret River Hawks Cricket Club is gearing up for the summer season which kicks off in just a couple of weeks.

President Al Wilkie said the Hawks were excited to announce Grant Garstone as captain of the A Grade side, and B Grade captain Alistair McIlroy.

"Grant captained the B Grade team to victory last season in the T20 competition, and runners up in the one day comp," he said.

"His return to A Grade clears the way for Al Mac to take on the reins of B Grade, with a view to going one step further."

Wilkie said the C Grade captaincy would be announced shortly.

"We are also excited to have acquired the skills of Alan Seymour as training coordinator, coach and net captain.

"Alan is a Level 3 coach and brings a wealth of experience to our net sessions."

Junior cricket looks to be strong again this season with the Hawks fielding teams in Master Blasters, Stage 1, Stage 2, Under 14 and Under 16 competitions, as well as a girls' team for the very first time.

A womens' team is currently in development.

Training takes place at the Hawks Nest at Gloucester Park, Western Oval. All players new and old are welcome to come along.
