The Rock-itt : October 2009
Warringah Cricket Club Inc. (Affiliated with the Sydney Cricket Association) Home of Shires Cricket on the NORTHERN BEACHES However as in every season before and for many seasons to come, players were turned away and many found themselves training with Shires at Weldon Oval (which is being refurbished). Of these Sam Alexander, Tom Kelly and Jacob Graham all played this weekend. Warringah Shires also had their first game this weekend and at Frank Gray Oval 2nd Grade played host to Roseville. Captain Timmy Bourke's side has already won the match on first innings thanks to some very tidy bowling by the new Club President, Rory Wightley who took 5 wind assisted wickets. On Sunday, 4th Grade decided to bat on the same wicket and amassed over 350 runs thanks to a Captain's knock by former 1st Grader Guy Davies and a debut 70 not out by Jacob Graham, who had been trialling with Manly in the pre season. Roseville were asked to bat for 10 overs at the end of the day once Warringah had declared. The two Northern Shore Clubs play for the Green Rose Cup (Bowl) each season. Early signs are that Warringah will win this year's challenge. As Warringah and Manly share the joint Ovals of Frank Gray and Mike Pawley, spectators, parents and supporters have a great deal of cricket to watch and find much enjoyment at the diversity of the cricket and the standards of the oppositions. Not long ago the ovals looked terrible and we managed to record the development of this valuable piece of sporting land on the Northern Beaches for posterity. Our sincere thanks to Warringah Council for all their efforts in getting these two notable sporting arenas up and ready for play. It is widely recognised as one of the best developments in established suburbs in Metropolitan Sydney. With the help of Cricket NSW this is now considered to be a venue of choice for multiple fixtures and especially for the Emerging Blues or the Emerging Breakers (Women's Cricket) WOMEN'S CRICKET We are hopeful that Women's Cricket will again return to the Northern Beaches and we seek young and enthusiastic young girls of all ages who wish to take up the sport. Not only players but administrators are welcome and all will be playing under the MANLY WARRINGAH DISTRICT CRICKET CLUB brand. Cricket NSW are hosting a small tournament at Frank Gray & Mike Pawley Ovals on 15th & 16th October, when Australian Women's Test cricketer Lisa Sthalekar will bring two squads for CITY team trials. Anyone wishing to watch is most welcome to come along and see the standard commencing at 9am.
