The Rock-itt : June 2011
A great season for Warringah Cricket Club with the Under 24's boys winning the Frank Gray Shield final – Captain Bourke leads Warringah to his second Frank Gray Trophy. Skipper Tim Bourke won the toss in the Frank Gray Shield final against Lindfield at Alan Davidson Oval and chose to bat. Ethan Collett (50) produced another fine innings to build a partnership with season’s batting star Craig Pecar (28) but with two quick wickets W arringah were in strife at 5/100. Captain Bourke batted through the innings to combine in a few small partnerships as the Young Green Men finished on 9/192 off their 50 overs. Bourkey finished unbeaten on 37 Sam Smith and Scott Butterworth had Lindfield reeling at 3/35, however their star batsman Adam Rezek remained at the crease and looked in ominous form. Lindfield then started to pull ahead in the m atch and with Rezek being dropped three times, the score moved out to 4/117 and the Green Men needed to dig deep. Craig Rupert was thrown the ball and with his very first ball clean bowled Rezek to bring the Greens right back into the match. A few small partnerships built the Lindfield total and needing only 4 runs an over for the last 10 they managed to reach 7/183 to be in within a sniff of victory. Scott Butterworth, finishing with the figures of 1/23 off 10, came back on and picked up a wicket and a runout to leave Lindfield needing 8 runs off the last over with one wicket in hand. The greens were able to run the last batsman out off the first ball of the over and seal the 7 run win. Craig Rupert ended up with 3/34 off 9.1 and Sam Smith 3/28 off 10, a truly great team win and one which the boys will savour for many years to come. At the Shires Dinner Craig Rupert FINALLY picked the Man of the Match award. Report by Simon Lyon, Photos by Ian Bird
