Manly Warringah Cricket Club Manly Junior Reps Under 11s and Under 14s make history A red-letter day for cricket on the Northern Beaches occurred on Sunday 16th Decem ber with victory for the Manly Warringah Junior Reps in the final of both the Under 11s J.H . Creak Shield and the Under 14s R.H. Moore Shield. This is the first time since 1971 that Manly Warringah has won the H.M . Moore Shield and it is believed that it is the first time ever that the Reps have won the J.H. Creek Shield. It is hard to recall when the last time won 2 premierships were won in the one season. The last Junior Premiership won by Manly Warringah by a Jav ed Badyari led Under 10s was m ore than 10 years ago. This is a superb achievement, as for so long the Manly Warringah Junior Rep sides have struggled to be competitive against other districts across the Sydney region and beyond. Howev er with great workers such as Shane Moran and his Junior Rep committee, as well as Danny LeMoy and his Junior Association Committee, this would not be possible. It is also a great credit to our MWDCC Vice President David Gainsford and Pathway Manager Greg Boyer who hav e worked tirelessly on the pathway program and were on the sideline cheering every run and wicket on Sunday. It was also great to see our Green Shield team down there supporting the boys, many of whom will be playing in the elite junior competition in a few years. But the biggest credit must go to the boys.

Under the guidance of Matthew Phelps for the Under 11s and Paul O'Sullivan and Roy Vumbaca for the Under 14s, the boy s had the v ery best coaching from the outset and listened and learned intently all season. Both finals had it all. In the Under 14s, Manly scrambled to be all out for 134 in the 49th over. Star batsman and recent grade debutant Aidan Bariol was run out for 3, followed quickly by 2 golden ducks. At 3 for 7 things were looking shaky. However a great 42 from N. Osborne, along with some help from I. Vumbaca (23), M. Moran(12) and M Brewster (23) allowed a defendable score to be reached. South Eastern started at a consistent pace. They got to 1 for 71 and looked to be on track for an easy victory. However inspired spells of bowling from Matt Moran (4 for 10), Isahai Vumbaca (2 for 22) and J. Wilson (2 for 20) saw South Eastern lose 9 for 33 and hand Manly Warringah a memorable victory. The Under 11s m atch was as tense. Making 9 for 128 from their 50 ov ers, the boys bowled North Shore out for 124 in the 48th over, winning an amazing game by 4 runs. It was a great year for our Junior Rep sides. Making the
