5 Red and 5 White played a local derby at Jindalee State School in the final round of U11 junior club cricket with 5 Red holding bragging rights over the winter months. The match featured great efforts from Ethan March, Caleb Poulsen and Byron Butcher. Well done to boys from both teams playing in a tough competition. The benefits will be apparent come next season.
U10 teams concluded their junior club cricket season on Saturday with matches against teams from Ferny Grove and Albany Creek. Boys in these teams have improved their skills each week and we look forward to watching their progress in the years to come. Special mention must be made of U10 Cork who went through the season undefeated, with seven wins and one tie, and U10 Galway who had five wins and one tie.
Notable performances were Will Sharkey (34* runs for 6A against TSS), Sam Loch (24* runs for 6A against TSS), Alexander Sherratt (4/10 from 3 overs for 6C against TSS), Oliver Kelly (2/3 from 2 overs for 5A against TSS) and Oliver Jackson (3/5 from 2 overs for 5B against TSS).
College wide results from the school cricket season were very encouraging. Omitting internal matches, ATC won 67 of 126 matches played i.e. 53%. This is up from Term 1 2015 and could have been much higher with losses by less than 6 runs in the double digits. Well done boys and coaches!
As this is my last report for the 2015-16 season, I take the opportunity to thank each and every member of the ATC cricket community for their contribution in making the season such a success. A solid platform has been established over the last two years on which future seasons can be built.
2016- 2017 season
Preparations for the next season have already commenced (can you believe it?) and there will be some exciting news very soon in regard to plans for the Term 4 season to enhance the cricketing experience for both experienced and novice players. Stay tuned.Good luck to luck to all with your chosen winter sports.
