The Rock-itt : March 2011
the other teams are in contention for a finals berth and are knocking on the door for the Club Championship. Even this year’s newbies, the Shires 5th Grade playing in the Tim Creer Cup, a 45 over one day com petition played around metropolitan Sydney, are leading their competition. Doug McGrath, a veteran player playing with injured knees and hip, captains this side with a blend of enthusiasm and encouragement that many others would do well to copy. His hard work and a squad of players that has extended to over 50 players so far this summer, has enabled an inflow of youngsters who would normally only be able to play Saturday morning Junior cricket on synthetic wickets. A batch of 14 year olds have been bloodied this summer and this early exposure to senior cricket will ensure that these youngsters get the opportunity to learn some tricks that will stand them in good stead in future seasons. Players like Hamish Ferguson, Matt Cole, Jimmy Crombie, W ill Outred, Blake Schiffers and Coby Steven are just a few of these promising young cricketers who will make their way through the Cricket Pathway that has been developed for Northern Beaches boys this summer. Some of the players who have taken their chances this summer are Sam Gainsford who is holding down a regular spot in 2 nd Grade and Sam Hole in 3 rd Grade with Ben Falconer improving every week in4 th Grade. So exciting times in this wonderful corner of Sydney. How far can these teams go and who will make the journey?
