FINAL - SATURDAY 2/3/2019
Unfortunately, the cricketing gods were not looking down on us for the final, with all three teams going down despite giving their best.
10 Blue had a great season playing an entertaining brand of cricket which they brought to the final. We hope these players all return so we get the opportunity to watch their development as a team over the coming years.
Glenbrook won the toss, batted and scored 5/157 off their 20 overs. In reply we posted 7/143.
Congratulations to Glenbrook on winning the premiership. It was an entertaining game of cricket from these young players.
It was a fantastic effort by the 15s to reach the final. They played many games short throughout the season and we thank the players who consistently turned up each week. Without your commitment, the team would not have achieved what it did.
Winning the toss, the 15s elected to bat and scored 9/115 off 36 overs. Springwood chased down our total in the 32nd over, two wickets down.
Congratulations to Springwood. This was the first occasion they reached the final in this age group. They batted well and deserved the win.
As a club we are very proud of this side. They have represented us well over the years. Bailey Tebbutt and Jed Prior both started off in the under 8s in the 2010/11 season. The bulk of the team joined in the 11s in the 2014/15 season. They have reached the semis every year and the final on three occasions during that time. The highlight was taking out the premiership as under 14s. We thank the players and their families for their commitment to our club and hope they will continue on with our Seniors next season.
Winning the toss, the 16s batted and were bowled out in the 40th over for 99. The combined Emu Plains/Colyton side passed our total two wickets down.
Well down to them, they dominated the competition and did not drop a match throughout. Congratulations.
Our next monthly meeting will be held at Penrith RSL on Tuesday, March 19 at 8pm. All members of our club are welcome and encouraged to attend.
