Newsletter 16, 2015/2016

Cricket is back in full swing with some great results for Premier Men and 2a’s both having outright win’s against St.Alban’s. The Dubai Diamond Traders winning the grade in the regular season and a Ton for the Red Barron – all took our mind of the test match in Wellington.

Friday Night Super Star Academy Cricket is ON for Friday night, 19th of Feb

There is NO cricket this week on Saturday 20th February due to the Test Match at Hagley Oval. Weather going to be great according to the forecast so let’s get plenty of support for the Blackcap’s, or club man Tom Latham and Brendon McCullums last test. If you are going to the test here are Hagley Oval updated terms and conditions here

Club Day – Saturday 27th of February – 

The club is arranging another club day on Saturday the 27th of February at Burnside Oval. Its a good opportunity to get the Saturday Juniors to play at the club, while the Premier Men start the first day of their two match against East Shirley as 2 play 3.

It’s also going to be a good opportunity for the members of the club and have a get together and catch-up to remember Andrew Hintz. Hamish Kember is also in the process of arranging a cricket match to be played on the 20th of March against some of “Reggies” former team mates so if you have played cricket with Hintz and want a run please get in to contact with Hamish, or put your name forward by email to the club.

Let’s make a day of it at BWCUCC!

Junior Cricket

A win for BWU4 vs St Andrews college by 66 runs at Burnside Primary school , BWU3 went down to Sydenham by 40 runs – please let me know if there are any special mentions for the honours board or send some pictures in that would be great.

Last Friday was the first cricket back for the Super Star Academy players, and Peter Burke reports it was as full a session after the holiday as he has seen in recent years – and with couple new coaches to help out. The youngsters must have taught Liam Winn as think or two as he went on to score 55 for Premier Men against St. Albans. Let’s hope the warm evenings continue.

BWU9 – Year 7/8 Girls team news and CJCA representative news. Angus report that

“The girls had another great game last weekend despite turning up to find a sprinkler truck had just turned their pitch at Polo into a swimming pool. A quick trip to Tai Tapu saw the girls batting on a dry pitch in a lovely country setting. They scored an imposing 214/5 off their 26 overs with Joey Hull 30* off 30 balls and Eliza McIntosh 59* off 31 balls. In reply Tai Tapu were all out for 68 in 19 overs. This was a great all-round bowling effort with only 15 extras, their lowest for the season and a reflection of all the coaching work Dawn Prestige has done with the girls.”

This week the bowling efforts of Eliza McIntosh at the CJCA tournaments and the girls South Island tournament in January (where she was joint top wicket taker) were rewarded at the Metro Youth cricket awards with the CJCA’s Jubilee Bowling Cup. Well done Eliza – we think you are the first Burnside junior to get one of those Jubilee awards.

The Burnside girls are also well represented in the CJCA’s U14 girls team announced this week to contest a quadrangular 20/20 tournament in Auckland at Easter. Well done to Molly Dunlop, Eliza McIntosh and Joey Hull for making that team!

There is no doubt that the success of this side is down the determination of the girls to improve their cricket as well the enjoyment from playing the game as part of a team. The support and help of parents and coaches is also very important. Many of the girls would have played in mixed junior teams for the club, but were also involved in the very well run CJCA girls tournaments, if you have a daugther interested in playing cricket and want to discuss this with anyone Angus McIntosh and Mike Dunlop would be only to happy to share their experiences, just email in your query to the club and we can put you in touch.

Adult Cricket


CMC Cavaliers, T20 Grade Champions, Regular Season – Dubai Diamond Traders

Back Row – Left to Right – Angus Mckenzie, Gerard Pottinger, Guy Archibald, Sam Harrison, Luke Moore

Front Row – Left to Right – Phife the Dog, Alex Truesdale, Nick Tinning, Ranui Luke, Brook Skates and Nick Robins

Make sure you give these guys the praise the deserve, its a tough grade in Cavaliers grade and it came down the last round when they managed to bet Hornby for the points to win.

Premier Men had an excellent outright win against St. Albans played over the Saturday and Sunday last weekend are now second on the table with Sydenham on 84.83 points, BWC 74.7 and East Shirley 73.01 – The next round on the 27th will see BWCUCC at home to East Shirley. Great result, and down to the hard work done by all – mentioned in dispatches Angus Harman’s 72 in the first innings, and Liam Winn’s 55 and a great all round bowling unit. Matt Farrant starred with Bat and Ball to build a good lead in Al Brown

The 2a side give St. Albans some punishment with a win by an innings and  40 runs, I don’t have any details of individual perfomances.

Cannon’s (Footie Foote and Road Block in the runs) and Brawlers (Rob Hoysted and David O’Brien both scoring 50 odd not out) had wins at home at Burnside Park.

3a’s and the Mariners found the vindaloo dished up a bit too spicy and too hot to handle a tough day in the park for them. The Stikers, Ghetto Hustlers and Rolling Stones are back to the drawing board for their next matches.

President’s Foxes managed a comfortable win over the Sydenham Cardinal’s – by 170 odd runs – with Marty Conway scoring 58, but the star of the show Rhys “Red” Barron getting a hundred for the club – after being invited by the skipper to open the batting – and hammering 13 boundaries and three 6’s to get his 107 and a couple of catches. Frampton Shield survives it first defence and the skipper was pleased to handover the “Fail Bail” trophy played between both teams.
