Without our sponsors, this club could not function. So, we are very grateful for their generosity, and this week we highlight two sponsors who we encourage you to support:
Martyns and Mowers who assist in looking after our grounds gear but are also regular supporters of events such as golf day
White and Taylor Plumbers who are also suppliers to, and ongoing supporters of, the club.
SUCCESSFUL CLUB DAY; JUNIOR PREMIERS KEEP ON WINNING
It was great to see so many BWU Junior players on Burnside Oval during Saturday’s Junior Club day, and then to have so many players and families up in the clubrooms afterwards.
In the afternoon, the Junior Premiers continued on their winning way against Sydenham. Read about their match here, and also how the Year 7 Premiers and the Year Six team fared. Also, Peter Hay reflects on the contribution of the Year 8 players to the club, and acknowledges a representative achievement by Matthias Paltridge.
HONOURS BOARD FOR FOUR JUNIORS AND ONE SENIOR PREMIER
No, Tim Southee’s not on our Honours Board (that’s the one at Lord’s) but on the BWU Honours Board there is now a second female player, only a week after our first. This time it was Eliza McIntosh with her 3/24 against OBC. Find out who the others on the Board are on this page.
PREMIERS MISS OUT ON ONE DAY COMPETITION SEMI-FINAL
To make the one day competition semi-finals, our Premiers needed LPW to beat OBC on Saturday, and to beat East-Shirley themselves. LPW did their bit for us, but unfortunately our boys went down by two wickets and therefore will not be semi-finalists. They play off for 7th or 8th place this week.
Our 2A’s two day match against OBC is evenly poised but all other teams except the 3B Cannons did not have a happy day. The Cannons beat East Shirley by four wickets and are now a clear first on the points table.
LOUIE CHAPMAN PLAYER OF TOURNAMENT AT NATIONAL PRIMARY SCHOOLS
Heaton Intermediate last week were in Palmerston North competing in the national Primary Schools tournament – the ‘Active Post Cup’. BWU had three players involved – Louie Chapman, Dominic Cornish and Cullen Moody. The team went very well but lost one game and ended up coming second on countback by 0.06 runs after 3 teams ended with one loss each! The boys were gutted as you can imagine. Well done to Louie who was player of the tournament – a great achievement. Congratulations, too, to Brendon Donkers, our BWU Premier coach, who also oversees the Heaton teams.

DID YOU KNOW?
….., continuing our West Indies theme, that a BWU player holds a share of the highest partnership in tests against the West Indies? Terry Jarvis, who played for our Premiers from to, scored 182 and put on 387 with Glenn Turner (259) against the West Indies in Georgetown, Guyana in 1972. This is still the fourth highest partnership for the first wicket in tests and the eighteenth highest for all wickets in test history.
Terry Jarvis, ex BWU player, batting for NZ in Georgetown in 1972 during his record stand with Glenn Turner. Current BWU Life Member Brian Hastings also batted in this innings (18 not out).
Have a great cricketing weekend.
