Meet your new Club Coach

The Newport Baseball Club is pleased to confirm that Justin Charles has been appointed Club Coach for season 2019/20 and beyond.


Justin brings a wealth of elite sporting experience as a former professional minor league player and AFL footballer and has extensive coaching experience at club and representative level.

Justin has been a member of the Rams Family for the past two seasons and has experienced first hand the resources, talent and club first mantra we live by.

Rams President Ben Portelli said he is “extremely excited that someone of Justin’s pedigree and sheer enthusiasm will lead our playing group into the next phase of their careers.”

For his part Justin says “It is a deep honour and privilege to be handed the responsibility being handed the reins at Newport baseball club. An absolute dream come true.

I look forward to continuing on the superb work of David Asp. With the incredible depth of talent from top to bottom and physical resources we are blessed with, we'll be looking to consolidate our position in Div1 and build from there.

Don't expect massive changes, I feel David Asp has presided over a fantastic base with which to work.

I just cannot wait to get started."

With our coach and Non-National import now locked in, work is already well underway planning for season 2019/20.
