HONOURS BOARD PERFORMANCES FROM DOMINIC CORNISH, CULLEN MOODY, BLAKE STOCKS, JONTY HUNTER, GEORGE WORKER, BRETT THOMSON AND CHRIS KINRAID
Players from the Premiers, 2Bs, Cannons, Junior Premiers, Year 7 Premiers and BWU4 teams made the honours board on Saturday. Check out what they did here.

PRESIDENTS FOXES IN THE BAR BY 2.30PM
The phone went in the Pavilion at 2.03pm on Saturday. It was Chris Kennedy. “Is the bar open?”, he asked, “we’ve bowled Sydenham Hospital out for 27 in an hour”. A few balls later, the Foxes were up watching the Canterbury ITM Cup team deal to Auckland in a similar fashion. Read Dave Robertson’s account of how it happened here, including some reminiscing about the NZ batsman with a 0.5 average.

A few photos of Senior Cricket at Burnside are on the Club’s Facebook page.

Elsewhere, it was not the happiest of weekends for the morning grades, with the Premiers losing to Canterbury Country, and the 2As and 2Bs going down to Riccarton. It was a different story in the afternoon grades, with the maximum possible victories. As well as the Foxes, the 3B Cannons (107/7) won the local derby against the 3B Brawlers (106/9), and the 3B Mariners (37/5) overcame Heathcote (35/8).

JUNIOR CRICKET GETS UNDERWAY

DID YOU KNOW?
….that the start of the Canterbury Wizards’ season starts very soon? They play a T20 “double header” against Central Districts and Otago on the evenings of Friday 1 November and Saturday 2 November. It’s just down the roads at Hagley Oval and the tickets are very reasonable. Get some here.

Have a great cricketing weekend.
