Burnside Cricket – Newsletter 9, 2014/15 Season

Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s “Top Six”


1. Phillip Hughes #putyourbatsout
We join the rest of the cricket community in mourning the death of Phillip Hughes and thinking of his family and friends, and of Sean Abbott.
There will be a moment’s silence at the beginning of club matches today, and members of the Burnside cricket family have joined many others in the #putyourbatsout tribute.

 2. Junior Club Day today

It’s junior club day today at Burnside Oval. All junior teams are playing at home and are warmly welcomed up to the club after their match for a drink and a sausage from the barbeque. Our three senior morning teams are also playing at home so it’s a good chance to see them play and to support them.


3. Junior and Senior results last Saturday

Our Premiers had a slip-up against Canterbury Under 20 in their first one day match last Sunday, but the 2As continued their unbeaten season with a six wicket win over Lancaster Park Woolston.

Other successful senior teams were the Presidents Foxes (by default over Sydenham Hospital), the Cannons (eight wicket win v Sydenham All Stars), the Mariners (nine wicket win over Old Boys Collegians) and the Dubai Diamond Traders (seven wicket win v Southern Districts).

The successful Junior team was BWU2 with a good 76 run win against Halswell. Read coach Ross James’ match report here for details of the exploits of Brandon Gray and Thomas Anderson.


4. Four Juniors and One Senior make Honours Board


Honours Board

Congratulations to Juniors Brandon Gray, Sam Forster, Nick Price and Jordan Sealey, who have all made the Honours Board over the past two weeks.

The sole senior to make the Board this week is James Jacques from the Brawlers.

Check out their achievements here.


5. Senior Subscriptions – Final Call


A reminder to all senior members that today is the final chance to receive the discounted rate on your annual subscription. If you haven’t already paid, or made an arrangement with our benevolent Treasurer, there will be committee members around today who are only too happy to take your money off your hands.


6. Daniel Vettori

It’s great to see Daniel Vettori back in the New Zealand test team, nearly 18 years after his 1997 debut.


He’s a markedly changed bowler after his mid-career back problems. Have a look at him here, taking his first test wicket


Have a great cricketing weekend
