The Rock-itt : January 2014
Quarter Finals in 4 grades, the Sem i Finals in 3, and winning 2 competitions, shows that our junior development program is on track. Not only do we have great teams and great coaches in our juniors, but we have som e juniors earmarked for big things. Perhaps the future for Manly Warringah Cricket is in good hands and looking fine. Let’s hope so. A. W . GREEN SHIELD SQUAD NAMED FOR 1st TWO ROUNDS vs EASTS and NORTHERN DISTRICTS The following young men hav e been selected to represent Manly Warringah District Cricket Club in this summer’s Green Shield tournam ent. Played during the Christmas holidays on both sides of Christmas, this competition is rated as possibly the premier test for Under 16 year old young men. 1 Joel Wood, 2 Aiden Bariol, 3 Jake Carden, 4 Jack Pickering, 5 Joe Graham, 6 Alex Bain, 7 Ned Hole, 8 Isaiah Vumbaca, 9 Abhijeet Virdi, 10 Ned Healey, 11 Lachlan Kerr 12 Glynn Archer. WARRINGAH CRICKET CLUB Warringah’s Masters X1 ends the year unbeaten in second place (with 5 wins out of 6) on the Sydney Masters Ladder behind Georges Riv er who have won 6 out of 6 games. In the last game before the Christm as break, the older Men in Green travelled to Hunter’s Hill’s Boronia Park to play newcomers Ryde Hunter’s Hill Pirates. Arriving at the former picturesque Ov al, the team was surprised to find an unprepared wicket so both sides agreed to play on the Saturday wicket which was less green than the prev ious gam e against North W est Sydney Hurricanes, where the team had knocked ov er their hosts for the trifling total of 25 in 19 overs. Fortunately Captain Mick Day won his first toss of the summer and chose to bat first. However batting was not easy and with Paul Dolby departing as first of the 4 LBW victims for 20 it was clear that the wicket was “up and down”. No-one scored more than 29 and the final total of 139-10 was considerably more than the team could hav e hoped for at the 20 ov er mark, thanks mainly to Daryal Genc and Dennis Valsamis who put on 30 runs for the last wicket. This stumbling perform ance before the festiv e season caused some nervousness but luckily the bowlers once again rescued the team . Wickets cam e quickly for the Green Men and at drinks Ryde HH were in serious trouble at 7-52. Needing 80 odd off the last 20 overs, resistance suddenly stiffened until LBW’s once again played a role and their chase was ov er at 109. Georges Riv er m eet the Green Men in February which may be the key game of the summer. Warringah Masters X1 Unbeaten at the Christmas break
