Message from the President

Cricket Lovers,

You are not alone if you have noticed a little more sun in the sky and the days getting a bit longer! That means cricket season is coming!!

As usual your committee has been working hard over the winter months in preparation for a bigger and better season than the last.

We also have some significant movement on and off committee which will be ratified at the AGM on 14th September at the HUB.

Registration numbers so far indicate that this season we are likely to have 22 teams, including 4 Senior Teams and 18 Juniors. This makes us the 2nd biggest cricket club in SA and bigger than any of the Premier Clubs. This many teams makes for lots of work. It is really important for the ongoing enjoyment of all our players and members that we have people prepared to do this work, and that when they do put their hand up to volunteer that they can then retire and hand over to others when it suits them!

So – Thank you to the following new committee members!

Nicholas Smith – Secretary
Karim Goel – Sponsorship
Jeremy Glaros and Adam Leaker – Junior & coaches Co-ordinators

Also a massive thank you to the following people who are stepping off the committee;

Bec Lawson Cooke
Chris Estcourt Hughes
Dave Prosser

I will also be stepping off at the next AGM and Alex Mathewson will be stepping in as Chair and President. Thanks Alex!

It is an exciting cricket season ahead. Sam Turner is making a great impression already as the Clubs Senior coach and we’re really optimistic about the impact he will have on the clubs Senior team fortunes.

September is a great month when the grass starts peering from under the mud and the sound of bat hitting willow starts echoing from cricket nets around town. It’s not far away, so I’d encourage all our players – young and old to start thinking about dusting off the whites for training then and the season start in October. It will be here before you know it!

All the best,
James Orchard
