The Carrum Downs Community Bank Frankston Blues are pleased to announce the re-signing of Mike McInnes who will lead Frankston’s SEABL men’s program as Captain in season 2016. Mike continues in the role as club Captain which he commenced in 2015 from Mitch Chapman.

The former Junior Blue and state representative, Mike enters his 7th season with the SEABL Blues and after an indifferent 2015 as a program is looking forward to getting on-court and start to prepare for what is shaping up as an exciting 2016. "After having a large turnover or personal, both in players and coaches, I'm really looking forward to getting on the court with the new group and starting our 2016 campaign. I'm really excited to play under Grant Wallace, especially after witnessing the success he has had in his past." McInnes said.

"Mike has a great love of our Club and possesses the perfect work ethic, experience and game awareness to lead our young group of players to ensure sustained success for years to follow.  He is a wonderful ambassador for Frankston Blues Basketball in our community and I am enjoying working with him in our SEABL Season 2016 preparation."
