The Rock-itt : November 2010
SAM WEBBER AND DYLAN MARSHALL MAKED 2ND GRADE DEBUT Manly’s up and coming off spinner, Dylan Marshall took 5-60 in his 2 nd Grade debut on the opening day of the season in Round 1. In Round 3, Sam Webber, last year’s 5 th Grade and Green Shield keeper, was promoted to 2 nd Grade and on the first evening of the two day match against Mosman (Whales), took a terrific diving leg side catch to leave the visitors in some trouble at 3-8 (BEACHED AS) chasing Manly’s massive 1 st innings score of 9-350 including a fine hundred by skipper Ben King. MANLY-WARRINGAH DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE SEASON MWJCA Rep season starts on Sunday 24 th October with players from Under 11 to Under 16 all representing the Manly-Warringah District for 2010 season. An incredible amount of effort has been made this season, not least by the Rep Association’s Committee and its Chairman, Ross Trewartha, who has led from the front. With a large group of volunteers coaches and managers, this group is providing the young cricketers of the Northern Beaches with a fabulous opportunity. The Under 15 DCA side led by Captain James “Jimbo” Boyer and ably supported by Sam Hole as Vice Captain in a partnership of 125 runs, secured a fine win against opponents North Shore at Mike Pawley Oval in the final trial, posting 217 in a good team effort before this weekend’s competition starts. Spinners Sam Hole and Raj Mehta took 5 of the North Shore wickets in a 20 over spell that strangled any real resistance in the run chase. Good luck to all the Rep sides for the opening round. Next month’s feature will have updates from all the age groups in Reps plus news of Poidevin Gray results. In Round 1 against Epping an amazing 177 not out by red head fast bowler Craig Pecar in Warringah’s 3 rd Grade side led by Danny Reynolds (former Manly 1 st Grade opening bowler) has been the season’s highlight thus far. That said the performances of many of the MWJCA juniors have been superb, with Sam Gainsford showing early season form in 3 rd Grade as well scoring a fine 51 and 46 in consecutive matches. The Club has had a large influx of the district juniors and has been refreshed by the new blood and the new programme which effectively has built a PATHWAY for junior cricketers playing on turf for the first time. W e shall be watching this development with interest as the season progresses. Doug McGrath has taken on the role of leading the new 5 th Grade on turf this season which is a very exciting new initiative by the combined Clubs. This one day Competition is played on either Saturdays and Sundays on available turf ovals around metropolitan Sydney and we believe it will provide a higher level of challenge to those former Academy players who previously only played in the “park” on synthetic wickets. Some younger players are playing Junior cricket in the mornings, then Shires 5th Grade in the afternoon and then following that up with a Rep match on Sundays. What a fantastic opportunity for these youngsters to develop their skills Sam Webber and Dylan Marshall waiting to bat at Manly Oval against Mosman in the Peter Philpott Trophy Hamish Ferguson in defence opening for U15 DCA against North Shore MWJCA Under 15 DCA Squad at Mike Pawley Oval
