Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

Cricket certainly was the winner last Friday night. Three out of the Four Nuna teams in semi finals won through to the Grand Finals. Additionally, all Nuna players and families were the true winners.

Semi Final Results
Nunawading Cricket Clubs Juniors – Semi Finals results last week – were as follows:

U18 – Defeated Chirnside Park

U14 – Defeated Bulleen Templestowe

U12 Purple – defeated Vermont

U12 Gold – Defeated by Surrey Hills

I was able to watch parts of all matches played last Friday. It was great to see so many happy Nuna juniors playing brilliant cricket.

Whilst the success of the three teams was fantastic – I can honestly say the one hour I spent watching U12 Gold team warm up – and then bowl against the top of the ladder and undefeated Surrey Hills – was the best cricket I have seen. The boy’s attitude was infectious – and the early wickets Nuna took certainly had Surrey Hills worried. Coach Simon and Team Manager Ryan have led this team magnificently all season. The bowling was of the highest quality – with runs at a premium. The wicket keeping by Dhruv (I don’t generally signal out individuals) was exceptional. U12 Gold – I know losing finals is tough – but trust me – you are all winners in the Clubs eyes. Playing a semi final – against an undefeated team – who you also had to play twice during the season – just shows exactly how your cricket has developed. Losing by only 7 runs is hard – but when you win your next final – you will look back at this match and realise what you have achieved.

Special mention to our Super 7s who also finished their season last weekend – we look forward to seeing you all on Presentation Day this Sunday.

Grand Final Fixtures
Nunawading has the following teams in Junior Grand Finals – this Thursday and Friday – starting at 5.00pm:

U18 – v Warrandyte – Mahoneys Reserve – Bob Saker Oval

U14 – v St Davids – Donvale Reserve

U12 Purple – v Surrey Hills – Surrey Park

Congratulations to all teams on making the grand Final – we wish you all the best. Please come along and support these teams this Thursday and Friday – as we hope the rain stays away…………

Bunnings BBQ
I don’t want to stress this too much – however we really do need some more volunteers to help at the Bunnings BBQ at Bunnings Nunawading on Sunday 29 March. Please – if you are free for for two hours – sign up. With over 100 Junior Familiies – and 100 seniors – we should be able to fill this.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

For our Junior Blasters, Fast 9s and U16s – I hope you all had a great season. It was great to be able to get cricket in last weekend for the last session/match of the year. We look forward to catching up and celebrating the season at Junior Presentation Day.

Finals and Cricket in March
Nunawading has the following teams playing semi finals finals THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

U18 Nunawading v Chirnside Park – Bob Saker Oval, Mahoneys Reserve

U14B Joint Nunawading/Laburnum team v Bulleen Templestowe – Kalang Park

U12B Nunawading Purple v Vermont – Mahoneys Reserve Oval number 2

U12B Nunawading Gold v Surrey Hills – Surrey Park Oval number 3

All matches commence at 5.00pm.

It would be great if you are free – and can pop in and support these Nunawading teams play their semi finals. With two semi finals at home – and two away – Nunawading is very well represented.

Our Super 7s will train this Friday night – with plans for a match between both teams on the bottom oval. The Saturday team will then play the final match for the season this Saturday. Our Sunday Team opponent has forfeited, so our Sunday team will not play on Sunday.

Bunnings BBQ
We really do need some more volunteers to help at the Bunnings BBQ at Bunnings Nunawading on Sunday 29 March. Once again – this is a great way to raise money from those outside the club – and also a great way to spend some time with other members of the club. All shifts still need extra support – please let me know if you can assist – or sign up via the link below.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

Well – it certainly looks like we will have uninterrupted cricket this weekend!!

Tomorrow night we will be having Super Burgers and Sausages – so please come upstairs after matches, training and Junior Blasters – and enjoy what should be a great evening.

Junior Presentation
As the end of the season does get closer, our Junior Presentation will be held late afternoon/evening, of Sunday 15 March. Exact times of individual team presentations and dinner to be provided soon – however please keep 4.30pm – 7.00pm free in your diaries. This again is always a great way to celebrate the end of the season.

Toyota Good for Cricket Raffle
Thanks to those families who have purchased tickets in the Toyota Good For Cricket Raffle. As mentioned last week – tickets cost $5 each – and there are some fantastic prizes. This year, all purchase details are on line – and can be accessed via the link below.

https://toyotagoodforcricket.raffletix.com.au/nunawadingcc?v=1

The beauty of this raffle – is that 100% of $5 you spend, goes to Nunawading Cricket Club. Even if you can just purchase one ticket each (or sell one to family friends), the Club will be able to raise some great funds – and you might be able to win a great prize, including a car!!!!

Trivia Night
Don’t forget the Club’s Trivia Night on Saturday 15 February. Details attached. There is just over a week to go – and there is still room available.

Team Update – U18s
Our U18 team is currently sitting top of the ladder. This is a fantastic achievement, as at the start of the season, it did not look like we would have a team at all. The beauty has been, that with returning players to Nuna – as well as some brand new families – the team has really gelled together – and is enjoying their cricket (and victories) Finals obviously beckon – so Coach Kev will be ensuring the boys remain focused. Special thanks to Club Coach Rob Ferdinands – who helped the boys at the start of the season – whilst Kev was overseas.
