The Rock-itt : November 2011
Manly is sitting atop the SCA Club Championship after winning three grades against Sydney University last Saturday. With Andrew “Billy” Lindsay making his comeback in 1 st Grade after a year’s break through injury with a match winning 5 wicket haul against last season’s premiers and Cameron Merchant with a special 92 the win was exceptional as the visitors were confident of overhauling the home sides total of 204. Third Grade under Craig Little also beat the Students quite easily at Grahams Reserve and Fifth Grade in a reduced overs match at Mike Pawley Oval created a win thanks to a solid 61 from opener Billy Darcy and another 5 wicket haul by Sam Alexander. This weekend Steve O’Keefe m akes his comeback from the T20 tournament in South Africa as First Grade travels to Glen McGrath Oval in the Sutherland Shire who fortunately do not have Phil Jacques or Stephen Smith available on Day 1. With the momentum that is with the Manly boys we are hopeful that we can get a win in our first away match of the summer. Also this week end First Grade and the Poidevin Gray elevens took on Bankstown at Bankstown Oval in the First Round of the summer T20 competition. With both teams winning handsomely and with Coach Gilchrist at the helm, last summer’s winning coach at Parramatta in T20, our hopes are high for success this season in this form of the game too. PATHWAY UPDATE The Pathway Program is up and running and working well. With availability a constant issue some new players have already made their debut in Manly’s Fifth Grade. Matt Cole, Cam eron McCallum Toom ey and James Crombie are the first beneficiaries. There is no doubt that the amount of effort put into this program has been extremely worthwhile. Cricket NSW have stated publicly that this initiative is probably the only one like it in the whole of Australia. WARRINGAH CRICKET CLUB Warringah have got off to a good start as well with ex Manly First Grader and now Warringah First Grade Captain Danny Reynolds setting the standard. This week his star bowlers Guy Davies, Vinnie Rehaan, Matt Butcher and Craig Rupert (on debut in A Grade), the latter three all ex Manly young cricketers, ripped through the Report by Simon Lyon
