The Rock-itt : December 2011
Manly Warringah District Junior Representative Teams Manly Warringah Junior Representative teams from the Under 16’s W atson Shield and Under 15’s Weblin Shield DCA sides have both reached the Quarter Finals of their respective Divisions. This is an exciting prospect for Junior cricket in this district as few people can recall a time when two of the older Junior DCA Representative sides have made it to the Final stages of these competitions. Both Teams Beat Sutherland in the Early Stages After a disappointing effort against Newcastle the Under 16 Watson Shield boys were determined to show the coach that they were m ade of better stuff and had the visitors from the Shire in huge problems at 7-39, but the Sharks rallied and posted a reasonable soccer of 109. Manly passed them with the loss of two wickets thanks to solid innings’ by Hole 45 not and Boyer 32 not out after Ben Falconer had destroyed their top order with some aggressive left arm pace. In the W eblin Shield (Under 15s) against the same opponents Manly after a good all-round bowling effort had Sutherland all out for 151, (Sam Gainsford 3-25, Matt Levene 2-21, Jack Shepherd 2-22). After being 2-100 (James McClintock 41, Adam McCormick 20), Manly wobbled to 6-110 before Matt Levene 40 not out got us home. Two Games Against Newcastle Another good all-round bowling effort had Newcastle’s W eblin shield side pegged back all day, reaching 9-154 from their 60 overs. (Jack Shepherd 3-29, Matt Levene 2-6, Luke Parkinson 2-22). After being 0-29 after 16 overs, a massive thunderstorm reduced the target to 78 from 30 overs, which the Under 15 Manly boys achieved for the loss of 4 wickets, batting on to 5- 90 from the allotted 30 overs. (Matt Levene 31, Sam Gainsford 28, Ben Wickham 19). The W atson Shield boys who travelled to Kahibah Oval on Rugby World Cup Final day to Charlestown for their first match, did really well to keep the hosts down to 2-109 off 47 overs but the last few overs runs leaked all over the field and they closed at 7-188, which was probably 30 more runs than it should have been. Sadly despite a solid 42 by opener Hamish Ferguson, and two Report by Simon Lyon
