The Rock-itt : March 2012
want to see how well the Shires lads are doing down at Weldon Oval where a fantastic refurbishment of the Weldon Pavilion is about to conclude, there are three grounds to watch good cricket and a cross section of the districts up and coming young cricketers. On the two contiguous grounds Frank Gray Oval where Warringah play and Mike Pawley Oval where Manly 5th Grade play alternate weeks, is to be found a scene rarely to be m atched in the whole of Sydney. Two lovely cricket grounds with atmosphere and the sound of bat on willow; what more could you ask for to see 44 players jousting for a finals berth. I encourage you to get down there to watch some of these games and I am sure that you will be welcomed for your support. FRANK GRAY SHIELD Once again Warringah Under 24’s are in contention for this Trophy known to them as “Frankie”, which in recent years has been won twice by Captain Tim Bourke, a champion of a fella, who leads by exam ple and sheer determination, and who carries all his players with him along the way. Young players like Hamish Ferguson, who has made his debut in Warringah’s 2 nd Grade side this summer and also scored his maiden century has enjoyed this new experience of playing in the same team with older players. James (Jimmy Crombie) has also starred in 2 nd Grade, scoring 42 not out last week against Norwest Sydney and then taking 3 wickets for 13 runs enabling Warringah to maintain 4 th place on the ladder. Jimmy was part of the Green Shield campaign for Manly where his batting was outstanding and has developed so well this summer that he can be seriously considered as an all rounder of some class. Watching these lads develop is a thrill for all those involved with their cricket future and to see the enjoyment of this group of players when they do well. With the Finals approaching for the Frank Gray lads, be sure to watch out for notices of the Final itself; we hope to see these young lads bring in the bacon again this summer.
