Greater Northern Raiders marked a Cricket Tasmania debut season by announcing two key commitments for next summer at the club's end-of-season celebration.
Head coach Andrew Gower has been reappointed to the role for a second year that also includes an invitation to a Cricket Australia level 3 coaching course at Brisbane.
"I am really excited to be reappointed," Gower said.
"You're never guaranteed anything in life."
That comes on the back of the Raiders' application to join the Cricket Tasmania women's competition next season being accepted.
The new side's desire to join their male counterparts against the best in the state started in November when a feasibility study was first commissioned.
Gower felt the club was now in a better position to fully attack the Hobart-based competition one year down.
The Raiders finished 2018-2019 with four wins, 13 losses and one no-result.
"I thought we were on the right track this year," Gower said. "It was a difficult year with coaching as there was obviously just so many other things also going on.
"So I am just really looking forward to this year being able to coach to help the lads out rather than just chasing players and doing other stuff in a more management role.
"This year we believe the program is going to be a lot stronger and we'll get a lot better buy in from the talented players we want to engage into the program."
Experienced Cricket North West administrator Chris Mitchell was confirmed to take over from Richard Bennett as the club's chairman.
The late end-of-the-year celebration on Thursday night at UTAS Stadium also centred much on Raiders spearhead James Beattie.
The star South Launceston product was named Raider of the Year after also winning the club's bowling award.
He polled 26.5 votes, well ahead of Ollie Wood on 19.
Beattie, who spent part of last summer at North Hobart, took 25 wickets this season at an average of 22.64.
Westbury's Jake Williams captured the batting award after a solid maiden Cricket Tasmania campaign.
The 19-year-old compiled 383 runs at 27.36 that included 140 against Glenorchy, the club's historic first century.
