2016/2017 Season – Newsletter #13

Welcome to the final BWCUCC newsletter of 2017.

In this edition:

  • Match reports and results from the weekend
  • Senior Player Profile: Matt Hay
  • Al Brown Update

Match reports from last weekend
There were some big results in the final weekend of cricket for 2017 for the senior club:

Premier Men win outright and Matt Farrant takes a hatty…
Our Premier men played out the second day of their two day match against St. Albans. After being bowled out on day 1 for 116, Matt Farrant took a fantastic 6-wicket haul to claim 6/38, and was ably backed up by Scott Inglis with 4/34. Saints were bowled out only 5 runs ahead. In our second innings, BWU delared 9 down for 178 (Cam Hawkins 63), setting Saints 174 to win. What followed couldn’t have been predicted with Burnside bowling Saints out for 76. Matt Farrant took a further 5 wickets including a hat-trick to claim 5/25 and finish up with eleven wickets for the match.

And another outright win for the 2As…
Our 2A men continued the winning vibe with an excellent outright win against Merivale Papanui. MP batted first and scored 193. In reply BWU scored 172/10 (War Machine McKean 56), conceding a 21 run first innings deficit. In their second innings, MP could only manage 85 with the wickets shared around. Burnside raced to victory scoring the required runs in only 16 overs. Well played to Steve McKean and his men.

Two tons for 2Bs vs. CBHS…
In a friendly match between BWU 2Bs and CBHS there were some big scores. Captain for the day Geoff Fosbender reports…

We played CBHS in a friendly match since they defaulted to us last week for the two day match that was meant to happen. BWU lost the toss and got put into bat. We lost an early wicket to be 5 for 1, bringing together Will Kennedy and Tom Dunlop for the partnership of the season with both young men scoring a century. BWCUCC finished the innings 246 for 5, taking full advantage of the short boundaries. CBHS came out and backed themselves to chase the score down  and batted aggressively, with a couple half centuries for their top order. Our bowlers chipped away, and with a final flurry of wickets we were able to put the final nail in the coffin – bowling CBHS out for 187.

Al Brown Competition Update

Plenty of movement this week with some big results form two day games coming in as well as consistent performers starting to make their way into the top 10. The biggest mover was Matt Farrant making his way past Chris Peters to Number 1 spot. In the junior cricket scene Molly Stagg has bounced back into contention, and for the Pressies, the mercurial Jeff Roy has edged his way into the top 10 after battling away for a few weeks.

  • CJCA Summer Trials are open – please follow link here for further information CJCA Summer Trials – nominations open

Results

The Premier Mens team were looking in good shape at 92/2 in the 16th over batting first against East Shirley at home on Burnside 1, but that third wicket stand of 70 between Tinus Huyser and JJ Naude came to an end in the 16th over when both batsmen were dismissed and what followed can only be described as a batting collapse of Pakistani proportions as 7 wickets fell in the space of 5 overs. All credit goes to AJ How and Scott Inglis for batting 19 overs to frustrate the opposition for the last wicket.

Some very good news from the 2b side as they had a win at against CBHS and Deon Cremer clearing the rope 5 times on his way to 122 and the first century of the season for the club meaning he makes it to this seasons Honours Board   You would think that this would propel Deon into the Al Brown MVP points leaderboard, but he is just missing the key ingredient of having the scores entered in CricHQ. This type of administration oversite would never happen in the Whangaparoa Cannons Pony Club, especially when their supreme leader Chris “El Capitan” Peters scores 74 for their side proving he can take runs and wickets and moving to the top of the Al Brown MVP leaderboard! Well done CP!

Schedule

This week the Premier Men’s side is away to Sydenham and so we have the priviledge of hosting North West Youth Cricket on Burnside 1 so please come down and give these guys your support and congratulate Joel Williams on his selection as the Canterbury U19 wicketkeeper.

For the junior club – all teams are playing at or near Burnside Park. Make sure to come back to the pavilion after the game for a sausage sizzle and a can of fizz.

The club will be proudly hosting our generous club sponsors, Jack Kerr Pride club and honourary club members for a pre-Christmas luncheon at 12:00 noon.

The Premier Men will be playing on the number 1 deck, and players, partners and families will be sharing lunch in the pavilion at the innings break. Expected to be from 12:30.

Caribbean Party at the Club Rooms!

For senior club members and supporters  – to close out the festivities of Club Day keep an eye on Facebook for details of the annual pre-Christmas BWCUCC party. This year’s theme is ‘a night in the Caribbean’. All welcome (18+ age limit).

Black Caps action at Hagley Oval

Colin de Grandhomme puts a query before the umpire, New Zealand v Pakistan, 1st Test, Christchurch, 3rd day, November 19, 2016

 

What a way to start the NZ Black Caps Summer of Cricket! Despite losing one day to rain, the Black Caps dominated a low scoring test match that only lasted three days. The two debutants did immensely well in their first test and Neil Wagner became the second fastest New Zealand bowler (behind R J Hadlee) to reach 100 test wickets. Burnside’s Tom Latham had a pretty quiet game in what can be described as seamer friendly conditions – scoring 1 and 9, and taking a catch in each Pakistan innings.

All teams back in action this weekend

After a weekend off for the test match at Hagley Oval, all teams return to action this weekend. Check out your draw on CricHQ, or at the links below:
