The Seahorses farewelled their 2019-20 Cricket Southern Bayside Championship Division premiership captain and ex-St Kilda all-rounder Dan Forbes, who has crossed to Subbies club Caulfield.

All-rounder Charlie Ross has replaced him as skipper.

Now the Seahorses are welcoming another former St Kilda player, Jarrod Munday, as they gear up for pre-season training.

Munday is a wicketkeeper and lower-order batsman and played 33 First XI matches in Premier Cricket.

He made his debut in 2014-15 and his last appearance for the Saints in 2018-19.

Putting a high price on his wicket, Munday averaged 22.35 with the bat and had a highest score of 67 not out, suggesting he will be a good performer in the middle-order for Hampton.

The keeping position at Hampton has had a few occupants in the past couple of years.

Veteran Joe Kenny stood behind the sticks in the grand final win over South Caulfield.

Oliver Tate, a noted leggie, had the gloves in the early rounds last season and then Jack Smart took over.
