Angus reports

“A great performance by the girls this week against OBC gold on Sat. The girls put on 226/4 in 26 overs and then kept OBC to 158/6 in their 26 overs. Some great batting by our girls including a number of personal bests for the season. Bethany Fox scored 32* off 21 and Eliza McIntosh 51* off 39.  There was lots of great bowling, but I should mention Abby McKissock’s three overs, one wicket for three runs.”
BWU3 had a 40 run win over Sumner CC in which Oakley Hawes 40 and Sam Forster 42* making the honours board – well batted.
Please remember to send in any photos or match performances! The Honours Board has been updated which can be found here
Coach Education Service – Extra Cover Coaching
Our Premier Mens Coach, Alex Reese has started a Coach Education service in Christchurch with Keryn Ambler (CHCH Metro) and Matt Parr (CBHS) called Extra Cover Coaching.
They specialise in modular Coach Education sessions, focussing on the ‘how’ of coaching, rather than the ‘what’.
On Monday 15th February, they will be running a session on ‘Coaching and Understanding Youth Athletes’. This session will be run by Sports Psychologist, John Quinn.
John works with a number of professional sporting outfits and athletes including the Canterbury Kings, New Zealand Cricket, Canterbury Tactix and local Shot Putter, Tom Walsh.
This session will be held at 6pm, Monday 15th February at Christchurch Boys’ High Cricket Pavilion and costs $10.

The Premier is back at Burnside this weekend for their match against St.Albans who are third in the points table – leading by less than half a point over BWCUCC, so a good time to come down and support the side.
A special mention goes out to Blake Coburn who playing for Canterbury A this week against Auckland A took 6 wickets – well bowled!
Deon Cremer is back to scoring runs after a very quick 77, which as not enough to overcome a MPCC side playing at home against the Brawlers – better luck this week.
Presidents Foxes overcame OBC on Saturday with a 4 wicket win with some of the players returning to Burnside Oval on the Monday to play in the 2nd rep fixture of the grade where North vs South with 2 players from all the clubs represented. A great initiative for the spirit of Presidents Grade cricket
