The Rock-itt : February 2011
cricket. Once again the Manly Cricket Club had hosted an event of quality and with the Grandstand and the Hill being well attended, then popularity of this form of the game is without doubt. WARRINGAH, the Beaches MEN IN GREEN cricketers Warringah Cricket Club, Manly's junior cousin, continues to dominate in all Grades this summer whilst still awaiting the refurbishment of the main Oval at Weldon Park, in Curl Curl. This year both Clubs have made significant ground in formalising the Junior Cricket Pathway in establishing a 5th Grade on turf which has enabled many young men to make the transition from Synthetic wickets to men's turf wickets. Some of these players are going to make a big impact on cricket in the district in the future, and while they are learning their trade, under great role models like Doug McGrath (who is looking after the successful 5th Grade this summer) and Danny Reynolds, who as Captain of WCC's 3rd Grade and as a former Manly 1st Grade opening bowler, these young blokes are in very, very good hands. So there is much to be excited about in the District this summer, and we have to take our collective hats off to those who had the vision, and the courage to see it through. Let us hope that in time we will see the fruits of this effort coming through with a player from this District playing for NSW or even Australia. With the Aussies struggling a little this summer, and likely sweeping changes, the opportunities for young stars to come through have only increased.
